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 >
