Need adventure trip idea - Eastern france, switzerland & italy

Jump to last reply

Hello all-

This will be my first trip to Europe, and I am looking for an adventure-type trip. To give you a little background:

It will be just my husband and I, in our mid 20's. We enjoy hiking (but would not call ourselves 'hikers' - can only hike a couple miles at a time). We love excursions, like ATV riding, zip-lining, hang-gliding, etc.

I love stunning views, and enjoy taking pictures (it's the reason why I love hiking).

Would also love to see some history/castles/architecture and what not.

Things we don't like:
I could care less about the different food.
My husband get's motion sickness, and he also can't swim - so anything in the water is generally not good.
Neither of us can just sit on the beach and do nothing


My ideas so far:
Would love to see Mont Blanc and go hang-gliding.
Lake Como in italy looks like it might be nice too.

This will be 10-12 days in July/August.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! (also, let me know if there is more adventure in some other country, I don't have my heart set on which country I want to visit)
