Pyrenees or French Alps for 1-2 weeks in mid-July?

Jump to last reply

Which would you recommend? The trip will include 3 generations, from my 72 year old father-in-law to our 5 and 2 year old kids. We'd like to focus on easy hikes, nature, bird and animal watching, and seeing wildflowers if they are blooming at that time. No really high elevations (our son didn't do well at high elevation in the Canadian Rockies) or steep hikes with the kids and Grandpa along.

I love the idea of the French Alps (and adding Swiss and Italian Alps potentially), but think it might be too crowded in mid-July.

This will be part of a longer trip which will focus more on culture, small towns and history in southern France.

Thanks!
