Tree climbing is a unique and sensory activity that allows participants to discover the tree and its environment by exploring it from the roots to the top in complete safety, by learning different climbing techniques and by using specific standardized equipment called PPE (personal protective equipment).


Unlike tree climbing courses, tree climbing is an ephemeral and itinerant activity, the ropes used are removed at the end of each activity in order to limit our impact as much as possible.


You are supervised throughout the session by a qualified instructor.


We also evolve in small groups, in the middle of nature.


An exploration of plants!
