If you love water sports, you've probably already tried things like white water rafting, kayaking and water skiing. While those are wonderful activities that offer an adrenaline rush, as well as a chance to get out and enjoy nature, you're probably also always on the lookout for something new. So maybe it's time to try hydrospeeding.
Those who enjoy extreme sports might be most familiar with places like Obergurgl due to the skiing and snowboarding that can be found there during the winter. But in the warmer months, there are plenty of opportunities to get a rush of adrenaline. For example, there's Area 47 in Tyrol. With its wild water and rapids, steep cliffs, deep puddles and mountain caves, this outdoor adventure park offers a variety of activities for visitors of every experience level.
One of the most exciting things about travelling is getting to learn about new cultures and see how people in other places live. Experiencing a new place can mean seeing the sights, tasting local flavours and trying various activities. You can also seek out music that's inspired by a different location, as well as incorporating new instruments and styles that you've never heard before. For those visiting Sainte Foy en Tarentaise, a local choir will be offering free performances throughout the summer, giving you the chance to hear the music of the mountains.
The summer months may not seem like the right time of year to find cheap ski hire and head to the mountains, but just because the sun is shining doesn't mean you can't get out and enjoy that swishing sound of the snow beneath your feet. In fact, there are a number of locations in the Alps where skiers can go to enjoy year-round skiing - meaning you can keep up the practice and get your skiing fix, even in July.
Summer visitors to Les Arcs will have plenty of options to keep busy - from hiking through the mountains to sampling gastronomic delights. For those who love music, the Les Arcs Music Festival is an event that shouldn't be missed. Every summer, Bourg-Saint-Maurice welcomes thousands of spectators to the event and 2016 marks the 43rd annual festival. It runs from July 18th to August 3rd.
With more than 40 free concerts to choose from, visitors will be captivated by the beautiful music being created at an altitude of 1,800 metres. Many of the performances are scheduled to take place outdoors, which means the wonderful tunes will be set among the region's stunning scenery, bringing a new level of enjoyment to listeners. There will be a number of concerts specifically for younger audiences, ensuring there will be something for every member of the family.
