Ile-de-France is composed of eight departments: Paris, Seine-et-Marne, Yvelines, Essonne, Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Saint-Denis, Val-de-Marne and Val-d'Oise. 12,000 km2 is the area of land to explore in this beautiful region and there is no shortage of outdoor activities! You can do a bungee jumping, a driving course, parachute jumping, go for a ULM flight, do a city trek or canoe kayaking while your children try mini-golf in a leisure centre or accrobranche in an adventure park around Paris.
If you are more attracted by cultural outings than by thrills, the region is full of ideas for outings for the whole family. Get on board the Fontainebleau tourist train that crosses the eponymous national forest. Stop for a picnic on this giant playground! Indeed, the latter offers rowing on the Seine, natural climbing walls or more simply bike rides, segway rides or horse rides. But maybe you prefer the height? Discover the magic of a hot air balloon trip over an exceptional natural setting. First flights are an unforgettable experience! It is possible that you will fly over the famous 17th century Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte in Melun... Don't forget to visit Versailles, its fabulous Château and its historic districts or the medieval city of Provins, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Adventure and nature lovers will be able to learn about a survival course. More than a walk in the woods, learn to be in harmony with nature and use its resources to manage in complete autonomy.
If the City of Light attracts you more, walk along the banks of the Seine, visit the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, meet the Bouquinistes, observe the Parisian boats... Summer and winter, there are so many possibilities in the Paris region. For animal lovers, did you know that there was a zoo in Vincennes? It is located near the educational farm and the Parc floral de Paris, a real green theatre! Otherwise, let yourself be tempted by water activities on the Seine: water skiing, pedal boat, windsurfing... and yes, even near Paris.
Finally, spend an afternoon in the Regional Natural Park of the Haute Vallée de Chevreuse. Overlooked by the Château de la Madeleine, this park is spread over 51 communes in the Ile-de-France region! Enough for a treasure hunt or a hike on one of the long-distance hiking trails. Do not hesitate to visit the Ile-de-France region, whatever your desires, you will necessarily find the right shoe for you.
