Victor and Laure Leveque
Our team consists first of all of Victor, the manager of the company, and his wife, Laure.
Victor is a lover of nature and insects, so it's no coincidence that you find mansions everywhere on the site for these little creatures. Moreover, for him "it's a duty, because in general, if you're afraid of insects, it's because you don't know them well"! Thus, its objective is to make us discover this beautiful ecosystem.

Exterior Nature: from its birth to the present day
The Outdoor Nature adventure was born in 2007. Victor, a canyoning enthusiast, decided to bring together the best canyon guides in the Pyrénées-Orientales to offer canyoning outings combining quality, user-friendliness and safety.
A fan of water sports, he quickly adds a tubing activity on the Têt river, in Marquixanes.
Then, over the years, the range of leisure activities at Extérieur Nature has expanded to climbing, via via ferrata, Rafting et the hydrospeed. Exterior Nature also develops corporate events such as team building and seminars, in France and abroad.
In 2017, Victor joined a magnificent adventure park and a cute little owl restaurant right next to the tubing, in Marquixanes. Always eager to offer a great diversity of outdoor activities, in 2020, he adds theExplorGames to create a large outdoor amusement park. The same year, the restaurant was baptized The rock and transforms into a pretty guinguette at the edge of the water.
