Great fun, good value for money

Great fun, good value, friendly staff.

We went there with our teenagers (16/18) to go tubing. There is a lovely cafe outside in the trees. The staff were all friendly and helpful, their English was much better than our French! Victor offered to take photos for us, which was great timing. We managed 5 runs on the river in an hour. It's fun and exciting but not too scary. Definitely recommended.

Tubing is the ideal solution to cool off.

I had a great time with my friends. Tubing is the ideal solution to cool off. Not too technical, not too fast, not too slow, not too easy. Just what is needed for everyone to have fun! Thank you to the Extérieur Nature teams.

The instructor briefed us well at the start

6 of us came to do the activity of tubing. We got vouchers from Groupon. The activity was from 12:30 p.m. to 13:30 p.m., so not many people, there was another group of 4 people which meant that we were not on top of each other in the river. The very friendly staff, the instructor briefed us well at the start. The weather was ideal and we made the most of it. Plus picnic tables on site, so we were able to eat peacefully on site after the activity. And the green setting is very nice, in short I recommend it.
