This summer, let your children discover new and fun activities such as the accrobranches courses which will allow them to let off steam and have fun in the open air.

Take time out for a family hike

A good way to slow down the pace of life is to go hiking! This is a sport that children will enjoy.
We advise you to start gradually with short walks when your child starts to walk, then you can increase the pace by taking a baby backpack until your child is about 3 years old. Then you can adjust the size of the walk so that the youngest child walks most of the way.
This is a good way to study the character of each child in relation to the difficulty. Children have very different ways of approaching effort, but the desire to surpass themselves is a good exercise to offer them for the future.

Lakes in the heart of the mountains to recharge your batteries

In most resorts, you will find a pretty lake either at altitude for pure wild beauty, or developed for the happiness of the youngest. Enjoy the joys of water, in a slightly cooler and therefore more bearable.

There are many activities you can do around a lake. The biggest mountain lakes will allow you to practice the same sports as in the sea: paddle, kayak, kite-surf, windsurfing, or pedal-boating with your family on the fresh waters of the mountain... In short, something to please all members of your tribe.
