Summer holidays are in full swing and many of you want to go to destinations in France that offer the possibility to practice many outdoor activities. Every year it's the same question: how to choose between sea and mountain?
If you are hesitating between a seaside or a mountain destination, EQ has prepared a little booklet of advice for a successful vacation, sea or mountain version!
What better way to recharge your batteries than in the pure mountain air? During the summer season, the mountains are a destination that offers a large number of possibilities in terms of discoveries and outdoor activities.
Among them, we think of hiking, with many marked trails that allow safe walks and adapted to different levels of walking.
To vary the pleasures and sensations, you can also do the circuits by bike.
In addition to the famous hiking, take advantage of the mountains to practice more intense activities such as climbing or white water sports in the rivers (kayaking, canoeing, rafting, canyoning). Take advantage of the calm of the lakes to walk on the water and enjoy the nature around you (paddle, kayak, pedal boat).
For a rejuvenating moment, take a moment in a thermal center that uses the spring water of the mountains.
The mountains are a truly soothing setting and offer many activities for families, especially with children.
To prepare for your expeditions, we have selected our favorite EQ products to take with you to the mountains:

Holidays by the sea
Seaside summer holidays inevitably rhyme with water activities and lazing on the beach!
To keep you busy during your vacations by the sea, there are many possibilities of water activities available to you.
If you are on the Mediterranean coast, admire the seabed in the transparent waters with underwater activities such as snorkeling or scuba diving for the most courageous.
The calm Mediterranean sea is ideal for trying out board sports such as windsurfing or paddle boarding.
On the Basque and Vendée coasts, with more waves, you will have the choice to practice more intense water sports like surfing and bodyboarding!
Generally speaking, vacations by the sea can satisfy everyone: sunbathing, resting, physical water activities and tourist discoveries.
As in the mountains, the sun is more present than at any other time of the year in the summer by the sea. It is very important to protect oneself from the sun and to use products that respect human health and the environment.
