Tree walking - Nature Adventure, Treigny
Traversing the wires, tackling the obstacles and exciting zip-lines from the treetop. The forrest features numerous circuits for varying abilities and ages - some high up in the trees.

Free time to explore the market and rambling round the medieval castle remains, set up on the hill above the village. Volunteers are rebuilding the castle towers of what was France’s largest chateau.
Alternative: Linger in the delightful town, enjoy a coffee in one of the cafes
Cave climbing - Grotte Champ Retard
An old limestone quarry with a vast cave cut into the rock. Featuring long zip wires, abseiling and rock climbing on a course set into the cave walls. Different levels of difficulty mean any age can participate. This is great fun - for the thrill-seekers - there is the opportunity to feel scared! The café with seating area provides a perfect place for spectators, while others can wander and watch the activities of others.
Canoeing - Saint Père sous Vézelay
Canoe down the enchanting River Cure, past geological outcrops and under an ancient Roman bridge. Its not white water rafting - but it is fun. If time allows we make a quick detour up to Vézelay for those wanting to see the inspiring bascilia.
Alternative: The river is close to the Chateau of Bazoches and Vézelay, for those preferring a guided tour.
Horse riding - Pesteau
Ride through the buttercup fields and rolling hills. The stables offer horses and ponies for beginners to the more experienced rider. Helmets provided.
