Fun activities

A - 3-day/2-night Adventure weekend in Evian les Bain region(lake Geneva area) - a half-day drive from Troyes (included in the program fee)

Extremely popular!

4 activities supervised by a professional specialized agency (canyoning, paragliding, rafting, Via ferrata) are included in the program cost and are at a beginner level. 

Canyoning is traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include other outdoor activities such as walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling (rappelling), and/or swimming.


Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure.


Rafting is a challenging recreational outdoor activity using an inflatable raft to navigate a river or other bodies of water. This is usually done on white water or different degrees of rough water, in order to thrill and excite the raft passengers.

 Via ferrata is a protected climbing route found in the Alps and certain other locations. The essence of a modern via ferrata is a steel cable which runs along the route and is periodically (every 1 to 10 metres (3.3 to 32.8 ft)) fixed to the rock. Using a via ferrata kit, climbers can secure themselves to the cable, limiting any fall.


 Students MUST know how to swim for the canyoning and rafting activities.
