SPECIAL YEAR-END ACTIVITY: THE TORCHLIGHT DESCENT THAT REPLACES THE JANUARY 1ST DIVE!
Traditionally at the Lacs de l'Eau d'Heure on January 1st, hundreds of participants throw themselves into the icy water of the Plate Taille lake, whose temperature barely reaches 2-3°C.
This year, following the covid measures, the event is cancelled ... but a nice and original alternative is proposed to the visitors of the lakes: a torchlight descent in the Bike Park.
A double appointment is taken: Sundays December 26 and January 2! From 5pm, the spectators are expected to visit the Natura Bike, at the Bike Park of the Lacs de l'Eau d'Heure.
On the program of this unique evening, a double torchlight descent (one by bike, the other by foot) with Christmas animations in the Refuge du Badon (mulled wine, hot chocolate, tartiflette food, etc.). A special night session in the Giant AirBag with the bikers show will take place after the double descent.
The access is 100% FREE.
SPECIAL END OF YEAR ACTIVITY: THE GOLDEN LAKES OUTDOOR ESCAPE GAME!
Due to the success of this activity last year, we have decided to create a new version for Christmas-New Year and to offer again this very nice activity to our tenants.
From the Christmas stall set up in front of the reception, take part in the Golden Lakes outdoor escape game, a treasure hunt that takes you to the four corners of the domain. Will you be able to find the clues that will allow you to open the safe and solve the enigma that has haunted the lakes since the beginning of time?
A fun activity to do with your family during your stay between Christmas and New Year.
