Description

Come and experience two days of wild and unforgettable hiking with your family, in the forests of the Bauges massif in Savoie.

Come and take the time to connect with Nature, take a few hours to breathe, stop the hectic pace of everyday life, and experience a memorable moment with your children. These two days will allow you to immerse yourself in resourcing spaces, with them and to transmit and share simple values far from the noise of the world: walk, find water, make a fire, sleep under the stars and in a teepee, go and get wood... Live like a man of the woods, a trapper, an Indian!

These 2 days are created and proposed for families from 2 to 6 people, wishing to take a break, as a family, to bond together, and with Nature, through adapted and simple activities, but rich in values. And by an unusual accommodation, which by its very nature, brings you closer to the earth. You will spend the night all together under a teepee, like a tribe, which will offer you an unforgettable moment!

In addition to your personal belongings (clothes, toiletries, medication if necessary), you will need to bring:

  • A backpack to carry everything (30 litres is a minimum),
  • Walking shoes,
  • Your picnic for the first day,
  • A water bottle or a bottle for water,
  • A sheet for overnight hygiene.

What you can forget :

  • Mobile phone (no electricity, no network), worries, work, your concerns!

Program

The programme is as follows, but can be adapted to suit individual needs.

D1: Hike and activities in the forest, night in a tepee.
Meeting in École (Savoie) at 10am, in the heart of the Bauges Natural Park.
We will take the time to get to know each other, and to prepare our gear for the adventure. After a short transfer to the starting point, we will climb to the place where we will stay for the night (300 meters of positive difference in altitude).
We will spend the rest of the afternoon living, far from screens and mobiles (no network), to find our childlike soul for the adults, thanks to the help of the youngest. This will be done through games and simple tasks such as collecting wood, choosing a fire place, exploring fire lighting techniques, looking for food in the forest, etc...
At the end of the day, we will prepare the camp for the night. We will then share a meal together and have a night in front of the fire to end this beautiful day.

D2 : Walk in search of animal tracks.
After waking up and taking the time to listen, admire and breathe, we will go for a short walk to find magical places hidden in the forest, to look for animal tracks (hinds, wild boars, chamois or why not wolves?) or to admire the landscape, and simply enjoy being there.
Back at the camp, there will be time for yourself and for the children, before lunch taken on site. After the preparation of the bags and the tidying up, we will take care to leave the place as clean as before, or even more... before taking the road back to its more ordinary daily life. Separation around 4pm.
