Annecy

Annecy is perhaps the dreamiest alpine town. Set along the serene Lake Annecy, its fairytale appeal knows no bounds. From the cobblestone streets to the grand lakeside chateaus, the town is picture-perfect at every corner. Who wouldn't want to post about such a destination? Especially if they run a travel inspo Instagram account! There's no doubt that a few high-quality images are enough to convince even the laziest couch potatoes to exert the extra effort to travel to the French Alps.

Grenoble

Grenoble is perhaps the most unique-looking out of all the different towns in the French Alps. Tucked away in the French countryside, the town's Renaissance aesthetic is somewhat of a palette cleanser from the typical Medieval communes of France. The avenues lined with ornate manors and opulent mansions give off a different kind of grandeur, one that's definitely worth capturing for your Instagram page. In this regard, you definitely shouldn't miss the 15th-century Palais de Justice. It's an architectural marvel that you won't find in any other part of the French Alps.

Chamonix

Chamonix is undoubtedly the quintessential French alpine town. It boasts the same Medieval appeal as many other communes in the area. The town's countryside charms never fail to captivate both locals and tourists alike. And of course, Chamonix is also famous for its location at the base of Mont Blanc.

Mont Blanc

Speaking of Mont Blanc, nothing says “I've been to the French Alps!” quite like a selfie with the world-famous mountain. Arguably the most popular peak in the French Alps, seeing it in person ought to be part of any traveler's bucket list. Fortunately, since Chamonix is, as mentioned, located at the base of Mont Blanc, getting a good shot of the mountain isn't too challenging. But why stop there? If you can, hike up a bit higher to get an even more amazing shot of the mountain. You can even take a selfie from the top and capture the views from up there too!

Mer de Glace

“Mer de Glace” in French means “Sea of Ice” in English. If you think that's too exaggerated of a name, wait until you actually get there yourself! Located on the northern slopes of Mont Blanc, not too far from Chamonix, Mer de Glace is the largest glacier in France. Walk inside it and see how Mother Nature's magic never fails to enchant even the most urban city-slickers. As the ice glows in a mystical shade of aqua, you can't help but capture every single aspect with your phone. Even your Instagram followers won't be able to believe such a place exists!

All of the Alpe d'Huez ski resort is worth capturing for Instagram. From the snow-covered slopes and the surrounding sweeping landscapes to the exquisite chalets and luxurious hotspots, there's arguably no other place that embodies the modern-day magic of the French Alps. Après-Ski is alive and well here, complete with all sorts of establishments that make resting in between skiing more exciting than the winter sport itself. Any travel influencer worth their salt ought to know that capturing the everyday moments in a place like Alpe d'Huez is as captivating a content as any other!

La Plagne

Ever taken a “selfie in the air” before, by any chance? If you haven't then look no further than La Plagne in the French Alps. At first glance, the place looks like a typical ski resort town. Perfect for a winter holiday, sure, but what about taking a selfie in the air? Well, that's on the Colosses chairlift out from Plagne Bellecôte. This one-of-a-kind ski lift has a built-in camera that encourages you to say cheese as it takes you high up in the air.

Les Menuires

Les Menuires is another ski resort where you can take the most amazing Instagram-worthy shots. You'll especially want to take one on top of Pointe de la Masse, the highest point in the area. Standing 2,804 meters high, any selfie you take here is bound to garner tons of likes online. Even more so if you include the bouquetin in the picture. “Bouquetin” is the French word for the Alpine ibex, a unique species of wild goat that lives in the European Alps. The bouquetin in this instance, however, refers to a giant wooden statue of the creature set at the peak of Pointe de la Masse.
