Original nights for an intriguing experience off the beaten track.
A 2-day hike in the mountains and a night under canvas near an altitude lake. You won’t have to worry about snakes in the grass, though, quite the contrary. Surfing (a very apt choice of words!) on the success of his family “survival courses” over the past two years, Guillaume Brun, a mid-altitude mountain guide, is setting up a new idea with his “Lakeside bivouacs". An experience that allows you to learn about the formation of mountain lakes and observe the night sky from a front row seat.
✨2 person tents and meals included, mattresses and sleeping bags not provided. Picnics at lunchtime and hot meal in the evening. Minimum age 8/10 years. 2 people minimum, 8/10 people maximum. Prices to be announced.

"Conscience" is the name given to this "2-day multi-activity mini expedition" on the banks of the river Isère, with the promise of living at the river’s rhythm, trying rafting, yoga and fly fishing. You will discover all the beauty and pleasure associated with this legendary Savoyard river, using the water as a means of transport and a source of nourishment and letting yourself be caught up in the tempo of the Isère, gradually becoming an observer of time passing. Through the yoga sessions organized on the riverbank, you concentrate on the essential and let your deepest desires express themselves to reach a state of concentration and reconnection to yourself. Once the "reset" is done, it is easy to fully appreciate the present moment. As a complement to yoga, fly fishing creates a direct link with the river and its visible and hidden environment, a nourishing discipline rich in knowledge. This combination of different disciplines offers special moments to be experienced with your family, friends or colleagues.
✨ Distance travelled along the river: 18 km. Minimum age: 14 years. Must be able to swim.
✨ Equipment provided: wetsuit, neoprene jacket and boots, CE-standard life jackets and helmets, waterproof bags, bivouac equipment and fishing equipment.
✨ Included : Ethree full meals, hot & cold drinks both days, transport to the starting point and 1-day fishing permit.
✨ Possibility of photo/video service by an independent professional, on request.
