Via ferrata course & paintball games

Since 2016, the Squirrel Forest, in french La Forêt des Écureuils, offers via ferrata courses. It is one of the only leisure parks in the region that offers this unusual activity that lends itself perfectly to the natural heritage of the Périgord Noir. This sport is halfway between hiking and climbing. On the side of a cliff, you will climb for about two hours. Equipped with a helmet and a harness, you will follow the path along the wall. Want to try it? This sport activity is accessible even to those who have never climbed before. Departures are recommended in the morning, especially because of the heat during the summer.

Are you afraid of heights? Keep your feet on the ground and opt for paintball! The Squirrel Forest also offers you to discover this sport leisure that you can practice with family or friends. Form your team and try not to get hit by your opponents. Develop your own strategies and work as a team to win the game. Laughter guaranteed!
