The Top 5 Most Bizarre Adventure Activities in France
France adventure holidays are packed to the rafters with activities that are that bit more unusual – giving an extra dimension to exploring this exciting country. So take a look at these top five amazing and quite bizarre experiences:
Tree top Adventures in Mont-Ventoux and Luberon
Well this certainly has to be one of the most bizarre adventures in France – so get your harness on - collect your hook, rope and pulley and off you go! You will literally soak up the fresh air with the beautiful pine and oak forests as you travel along the monkey bridges and either experience zip-lining or a perhaps for the more daring a bungee jump! This adventure is for the whole family and suitable for everyone aged 3 and above. The new park in Provence has the longest zip wire (220m) and is guaranteed to exhilarate you. Probably allow half a day in order to take full advantage of the aerial treetop trails, in absolute safety with all necessary equipment provided. The actual trees range from 3m to 15m. The giant zip wire can also be used by children, when accompanied by an adult. For our very little ones - there is a low rope course (under 1m) enabling adults to assist.
Rock Climbing in Provence
The Dentelles de Montmirail, Ventoux valleys are some of the many sites that make Vaucluse a great place for rock climbing in Provence. Climbing courses, ranked climbs, indoor climbing walls, vertical climbing, tree top assault courses and adventure courses are all fun activities guaranteed for everyone. If you require a refresher course or just someone to join you there are courses for individuals and groups.
Ardèche White Water Adventure
This Family Adventure Holiday is set against the fabulous backdrop of the stunning Ardèche gorge (the Grand Canyon of Europe); it is the best place for white-water canoeing and a rather bizarre pursuit for all the family. The main highlight is the amazing descent down this spectacular gorge. All equipment is provided for you and your family - along with delicious food. The instructors ensure the river descent is as exciting as possible, taking in the various rapids and the famous Pont Arc.
Cycling in the Pyrenees
Many tourists flock to Paris to see the winners of the Tour de France. So if you enjoy cycling and are quite advanced then you will enjoy the Route des cols. It is a 368km trail through the Midi-Pyrénées region which passes many historic points of interests including the famous spa towns of Col du Tourmalet, Pic du Midi, and the Grotte de Niaux cave. However, you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy cycling in the Pyrenees. There is plenty of organized cycling holidays that can be packaged for you or your group. Cycling routes can be booked from three days to 14 days.
Tandem Paragliding in the Chamonix valley
Paraglide in front of Mont Blanc is an amazing and unusual experience. Flights are all year round and ages from 4 years to 90 years are welcome. The instructors are highly experienced and speak English. So if you fancy riding a hammock across the sky completely safe – then paragliding is another way of looking down at the world.
