Finding a location

Finding the location for your course

The criteria that you need to take into consideration:

  • It is necessary, if possible, to choose a quality location in proximity to the most significant catchment area;
  • For matters of budget, it is recommended to choose a location with a forest in order to make use of natural mounts for setting up the installations;
  • It is better to have a forest of average quality in proximity to significantly populated areas rather than a really beautiful forest in an area completely isolated from the rest of the world;
  • However, a few exceptional areas have proven that a quality location accompanied by a good information campaign and good publicity can also be successful;
  • The forest must then be “fitted out” and well maintained: the tracing of paths, pruning of trees, clearing, brush cutting and cleaning in order to improve ease of movement and visibility in the trees and the cutting of certain trees (in accordance with the constructor at the end of the installation tracing visit).

The right tourist location

Tourist locations that accommodate for these types of installations vary; they range from urban agricultural zones to classified state forests and also comprise of seaside or lakeside land. They can differ as much in their typology and ranking as in their capacity to accommodate for such installations. Their common aspect being their search for open air sports activities that are respectful of the environment.

And, if you don’t have access to a forest, we will build one for you! Indeed, thanks to fabricated structures of all kinds (towers, tripods, trunks, pillars…), we are able to (at an additional cost) reconstitute the mounts necessary for this activity.

Thinking of everything needed for one’s course

You also need to consider the following elements:

  • It is also necessary to set up a reception chalet and also one for storing equipment;
  • Parking lots with a capacity of 10-80 cars;
  • It is preferable to have toilets at close proximity;
  • Having an area for busses to turn around is an additional asset.

A respectful location

Through the operation of an Arbre & Aventure © course, we are able to convey the image of a location, of its ability to accommodate the course, we educate visitors regarding the respect of the specific environment by becoming familiar with said area, all with the closest contact to nature.
We also initiate clients in a very strict manner. Indeed, safely instructions must be adhered to and supervision cannot be compromised all while maintaining the highest quality of welcome throughout the entire course. The tranqillity desired at any moment of relaxation must not call into question the vigilance of the supervisors.
