Day 2: Paris to Les Deux Alpes
Rise and shine! This morning we’re up bright and early, leaving the city behind in favour of snow, slopes and views for days. Board our comfy coach as we set a course for the mountains. Kick back, relax and drift off to sleep, dreaming of the memories to be made ahead. Our expert Busabout driver will take us south, through the rolling French countryside, to the second oldest ski resort in France, Les Deux Alpes.
