Outdoor activities: how to choose?

Choose an activity that is suitable for all participants.

Ensure that the physical condition of each participant is suitable for the activity.

Choose an activity according to the time you want to devote to it.

Define a budget for the whole group or per person

First of all, it is important to know what everyone wants and expects. The aim is for all participants to enjoy the outing !

Another element to take into account ? Physical condition. Don’t panic, all levels are welcome! Some canyoning, Via Ferrata, climbing or canoeing courses are specially designed for beginners and children; others are suitable for extreme sports enthusiasts and will ensure a good dose of adrenaline.

Looking for a less sporty activity? Then the aquatic hike is for you! Wearing a wetsuit, let yourself be transported by the current of clear water, walk in the rivers and admire the lush nature.

In order to choose the right outdoor sport, you will need to decide how much time you want to spend on it : half a day or a day.

Finally, set a budget. If all the participants do not agree or if the levels differ too much, you can decide to divide up so that everyone can make the most of the adventure!

The Bureau des Moniteurs also offers the possibility to select a tailor-made programme with different sports activities over several days; find the option that suits you!
