Fantasy walks

Distance: 4.5 km
Positive Elevation: 160 m
Time: 2h15

Several atmospheres come one after the other. This forest is truly magic. The whole family will enjoy it.

With your eyes wide open, you will be surprised by the beings of the forest (wooden sculptures, original masks, letter drawings…), stories, tales and legends resurface, improvisation drama “in the green” is certain to produce laughter.

– Our tip: enjoy it for a whole day. The hike in the forest is invigorating: undergrowth, birds, small streams.

Have a picnic with the children at the house of the Hermit, play in the woods, bring in one’s witch hat, make one’s mask (elf, wolf…) in land art style.
