If you ever wanted to travel to France and see some of the country's most extraordinary locations, but never had a chance to go, check out Above France. The universal app will let you see some of the most famous, as well as some of the most hidden sites in France, many from a bird's eye point of view. It will feel as if you are looking at these sites from a helicopter. Above France comes from National Geographic Traveler and Fotonauts Inc. The app offers an insider's look at these locations from photographer Frank Mulliez. Some of the locations presented include: l'Aiguille du Midi and the Chateau d'Yquem. There are more than 2,000 photographs included in Above France. Other features include: interactive maps, social media sharing, beautiful slideshows, wallpapers, and a trip builder. "See the most spectacular abbeys, beaches, bridges, castles, cliffs, fortifications, geometric landscapes, harbors, islands, lakes, lighthouses, mountains, rivers, quaint villages, waterfalls, windmills,… An endless collection of awe-inspiring vistas," according to the app description. The app is also great for those who have been to the country. It offers a great way to rekindle memories and gives a different perspective on these sites. The fact that many of them are also hard to reach means there will be sites covered that most travelers probably have no access to. Above France is currently available on the App Store for $2.99.
