What could be better than going on an adventure while staying warm. Climb to the peaks with Vertical’ Art, a fun bouldering room for young and old. Travel to the future with virtual reality experience at VR Evolution. Test your driver’s reflexes in one of the indoor kart circuits in Sarthe!

Horseback riding: nature in winter

Bocage, exceptional forest, rocky relief, go with one of the many equestrian centers of the Sarthe on a horseback ride to discover the beauties of the Sarthe nature. Accompanied by an experienced instructor, children will learn the basics of horse riding.

Dog sledding in the forest

The cani-kart is a kind of sled on wheels connected to a dozen dogs. As with a hitch from the Far North, hurtle down the forest at high speed for unforgettable sensations! The cani-kart is accessible to people with reduced mobility.
