It is a green leisure activity and a sporting discipline, which appeared in France in 1989 in Annonay, based on techniques from the world of tree climbers. The aims of this activity are to offer all participants the possibility of reaching the top of a tree in complete safety and to discover its environment in order to learn to respect it.
The activity is open to everyone from the age of 7, including people with disabilities. It can be practised wherever there are healthy trees, it is nomadic. All the installations are ephemeral and respectful of the trees, which is why it is not practised in a "park" like the adventure courses.
Beware! This activity is very different from "adventure courses". Here the participants climb directly on the branches to "visit" a tree from the bottom to the top. There is no course but a rope system, just like in climbing. The concept is to use supervised climbing techniques in the trees combined with removable structures to allow everyone to discover the tree in its most beautiful aspect, in its intimacy.
"It is by meeting these great plants, that everyone can learn to respect what is beautiful."
- Group Discovery: Put on a harness, watch the demo to learn how to
climb and the adventure begins! During the activity, everyone will move at their own pace to discover the tree in complete safety. You will be able to move up the tree thanks to clever techniques and rope knots until you reach a suspended platform where you can share a snack.... before setting off again to explore. This is an activity suitable for all ages and levels
- Perched bivouacs: After an approach walk, we will meet a tree on the mountainside for a night perched high up with an incredible view. Nights in hammocks or platform of your choice before departure.
- Tree to tree trip: An extraordinary trip: one day without putting our feet on the ground...We will start from the ground to climb a tree then move to its neighbour and so on, as far as we wish. At lunchtime, we will have a picnic in the air! This new trip is intended for people who have already practised a vertical activity (climbing or other...)
- Climbing with a connection: We have selected some trees. We will go on an unusual exploration with a totally new viewpoint at the top! The itinerary is totally free, you will go through the branches that you like the most, while remaining safely supervised by an instructor. The descent is made by a long abseil along the trunk. This activity is recommended for participants in good physical condition and reserved for participants over 10 years old.
All year round, daily.
