Activities

Watersports

In a full watersports programme, your students will experience watersports on a nearby lake, enjoy the thrills and spills of our Banana Boat out on the Med and tackle the local Inflatable Aquapark.

Activity Instruction

Our activities are delivered by a mixture of qualified PGL staff and local providers. PGL staff are always on hand to support you and ensure you get the PGL experience you know and love.

Activity Locations

Activities are either local to the centre or just a short coach ride away. Please ask your Tour Organiser for more detail on locations of any specific activities.

Excursions

One day of your itinerary is set aside to change the pace with an off-site activity. You can opt for the thrills and spills of the Aqualand waterpark or take on the high-level rope courses at AccroJump! Groups travelling by air or on 8/9 day courses have an additional excursion day, most use this opportunity to have a day trip to the beach at Le Grau du Roi and the ancient, fortified city of Aigues-Mortes.

Fun-Packed Evenings

The fun doesn’t stop when the day’s activities are over. Our centre teams lead evening entertainment to keep your students occupied, including a nightly disco.

See the evening entertainment available at Mimosa >
