IN FAMILYSUNDAY AT HAUTE VILAINE OUTDOOR ACTIVITY CENTRE

Sunday at Haute Vilaine outdoor activity centre

Surrounded by lovely footpaths, the lake at Vitré is a great leisure venue with activities for all the family. Haute Vilaine outdoor activity centre (base de loisirs) has a beach, sports facilities and children’s play parks, making it an ideal place for a day out less than an hour from Rennes.

FAMILY FUN AT VITRÉ

Have a family day out in the open air at Haute Vilaine outdoor activity centre at Saint-M’Hervé, 8km from Vitré, based around a lake of 150 hectares.

Children will adore the day’s programme : treasure hunt in the morning, picnic by the lake then a canoeing or paddle boarding in the afternoon. So let’s go!


AN OUTDOOR TREASURE HUNT

Start the day with a well-marked orienteering challenge or a geocaching adventure (French only) around the lake.

Learn to find your way and have fun at the same time!

Go to the water sports centre to get a special map for the orienteering challenge. This will enable you to find the 75 wooden markers on the course by following the path of your choice. To validate each marker you just have to punch your card. The aim of the challenge is to finish the course as quickly as possible!

Geocaching

You can also explore the Vitré activity centre by following a geocaching trail (French only). To take part, download the free app « Trésors de Haute-Bretagne » onto your smartphone and choose the trail called « Jetez-vous à l’eau ».


PICNIC OR BARBECUE TIME

All this treasure hunting has probably left you feeling very hungry so it’s time for an outdoor lunch. You can choose a traditional picnic at one of the tables by the lake or have a barbecue!

A fire-pit allows everyone to barbecue their own food and enjoy a good family meal. Round off your lunch with a game of boules or a quiet walk beside the lake. Children can have fun at the nearby play parks.

AN AFTERNOON ON THE WATER

Make the most of the lake by an afternoon of paddle-boarding, canoeing, windsurfing or catamaran sailing. Hire the craft of your choice or have a one-to-one lesson with a qualified instructor from the Haute Vilaine outdoor activity centre.

Remember to bring suitable clothing for water sports and your swimming stuff so you can have a swim at the little beach!
