France Explorer

for Cubs and Scouts

Discover Paris

There are the famous sights, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe; then there are the unique cultural experiences – a walk around Montmartre, an exchange with a local, the sights, sounds and smells of a bustling French market.
Exploring Paris is a journey of discovery.

A trip to France with Cubs or Scouts offers priceless experiences that they can share with friends.

Your Cub pack or Scout group will love discovering the many delights that Paris has to offer. They’ll experience French culture in an authentic environment and adding a day at Disneyland® Paris is sure to set them competing for a place on the trip!

We’ll tailor-make your programme around the specific requirements of your group – advising on great trips we know your Scouts will love.

We plan itineraries around you.

So you can make the most of your time away, we’ll provide a PGL Tour Leader who will accompany you and your group throughout your trip. They’re there to support you and will ensure every day runs smoothly – it’s that little extra reassurance you need when taking your Cubs or Scouts abroad.

Activities

Excursions
Discover why Paris is one of Europe’s most popular capital cities. Explore the city with PGL and we’ll help bring the culture and history alive for your Scouts.

Adventure: The PGL Bonus
To complement your excursion programme, our adventure activity sessions are designed to challenge, motivate and inspire your Cub or Scout group – available at a small supplement.

An Evening Programme
The French theme continues into the evening with our entertainment programmes. Whether it’s snail tasting or crêpe making, they’re fantastic fun and a great way to round off a busy day.

It’s the little extras that make all the difference when it comes to making great memories.
