New Adventure Tours

With the Mother in law, Sister in law and her two kids ( 6 and 9) visiting us for a couple of days, we wanted to have a family day out that invloved everyone and decided to test out a nearby adventure park.

I invited a few friends with children along and before I knew it, we were a group of 30! We took the scenic drive west of Perpignan with the snow capped Canigou in our sights the whole way and the roads lined with dancing red poppies. The day was glorious ; the temperatures in the early twenties with a pleasant breeze as we enjoyed a pic nic riverside. We managed to get our gas bbq into the back of the minibus so we sozzled sausages and hamburgers while the kids had a ball scampering about.

The adventure course is suitable for 3 year olds to 93 year olds and was fantastic fun - they have different levels of difficulty ; green for the babes, blue , red and black , just like the ski runs.
The "pistes" involved rope climbing, swinging from trees, flying along on zip wires over rivers and some daring maneoveres, some at over 30metres above us in the high tree tops. Not for the faint hearted!!
There is a fab pic nic area by the river in a most idyllic setting with the river babbling along and the birdlife singing. There is also a café where one can purchase snacks and coffees if one feels like just hanging out.

Everybody had the most enjoyable day out and we loved the day so much, that we have added adventure tours to our menu of tours and look forward to going back there asap! A perfect family day out or a bonding day for a business group.
