The Parcours Aventures was the main reason for our visit and it is
really well set out. When you arrive and have paid for what you want to
do the first thing to do is to get kitted out in your harness which can
be a bit of a performance as you wrap yourself in something that would
get a bondage enthusiast all hot and bothered. You are then divided up
into groups depending on whether you speak French or English for your
safety briefing before being taken over to the beginner course for some
practice. I found the briefing very easy to follow and delivered in
perfect English however just in case you forget anything all of the
obstacles have some basic visual instructions on them instructing you
on how to tackle the obstacle and how you should clip yourself on to
the wires. All of the courses through the trees are colour coded and
graded according to difficulty with age restrictions on them and also
an indication of the time they take. This is important as each session
is two hours long and you are able to judge whether you have enough
time for a course.There is a great deal of variety and the top level
courses are certainly only for those with a lot of experience as you
are very high up and they have a great deal of technical difficulty;
for example you take part in long rope swings into cargo nets that you
have to grab, miss the net and you will be suspended from your harness
with someone blowing one of the emergency whistles attached to all the
trees to summon assistance much to your embarrassment. There are a
number of zip wires which are great fun although I did find stopping a
bit of a problem and the image of my body leaving an impression on a
tree was never far from my mind. Some off the rope crossings are quite
nerve wracking even if you know that you are securely clipped on and
you definitely need to have a head for heights, good balance and body
strength if you tackle any course seen to be suitable for those over
nine years of age.
