How do you create
quality adventures?

  • How should we design quality original activities and stays in the middle of nowhere?
  • How can we adapt to a wild setting, for a public as wide as it is demanding?

Ideas

Well thought out and tested as foolproof
Since leisure activities should be devised and well thought out, as the amount of improvisation necessary for the change of scene must be mastered, and since the adventure must not go hand in hand with failure…Each service has endured the test of being designed and tried and tested. Indeed, all our products have been rigorously created and developed before being tested on the ground by our team of pros.

We thus guarantee the feasibility of our services and especially their relevance. Thus, some of our most exciting projects on paper reveal themselves as less relevant when field tested. We then go back to the drawing board, and retry and retest them…

A team

Of professionals, both passionate and excited
To support this project, we have brought together outdoor professionals who share this philosophy of countryside activities.

Nevertheless, each has their personality and each provides their small contribution, gathered at the bend in the path or a cliff.

Behind the design screen, during the telephone booking or at the other end of the line in the initiative… A pro team to produce your ideas.

Spaces

As the playgrounds
These unique natural spaces are part of an invaluable ecological and human heritage.

The paths we take, the rivers that we go down, or the mountains that we climb are and have been used by the surrounding human populations .

From the Cévennes rivers to the wild crossings of the Calanques, including the cliffs of the Gorges de l’Ardèche (Ardèche gorges), we are simply pursuing a single aim: to take you where you wouldn’t otherwise have gone!

You

The final touch to this incredible project
So that these ideas can come alive, so that these spaces can be crowded, so that this team can fully utilize its talents, evidently YOU are at the centre of the adventure.
