France 6-Day Tours & Itineraries

Explore 19 trips designed by local kimkim specialists to get ideas for your trip to France.

Six days in France is just enough time to get to know one place, like Paris, or to venture into more than one region, like the Loire Valley. One popular option is Provence, known for its wineries and lavender fields: you could explore Upper Provence on a bicycle or see more of the region on an electric bike tour. Cycling in the Alps is another excellent choice for outdoor enthusiasts, while food-focused travelers may opt for a gourmet tour of the French Riviera with cooking classes and wine tastings along the way.  If you’re up for an off-the-beaten-path adventure, consider the island of Corsica.
