France - Adventure Trips

When it comes to school trips, France is a firm favourite and Acorn has been organising school trips here for nearly four decades. We have three adventure centres in France; one in Northern France, one in the Dordogne region and our ever popular Ardeche Adventure, in the South of France. 

If you are looking for a French adventure within easy reach of the UK, then our Opal Coast Adventure, just 25 minutes from the port of Calais is an ideal choice. Here you can enjoy a range of lake water sports, land based activities and a trip to Nausicaa Sealife centre.

Our Dordogne Adventure is ideal for those wanting to travel a bit further down into France and perhaps visit Disneyland Paris too. Here you can enjoy an exciting water sports and land based activity programme with BBQ nights and excellent sports facilities for free time.

For the creme de la creme, it's worth travelling that bit further to our Ardeche Adventure centre in the South of France featuring infamous two day canoe journey down the Ardeche River! Our large centre in this magnificient region also features a swimming pool.

Whichever French trip you choose for your school, you'll find an excellent choice of activities, a rich sense of French culture and locations that have been chosen to make the most of the beautiful local outdoor environments.

Acorn Adventure Centres

Paddle your way through the spectacular Ardèche Gorge on a two day canoe trip along 30km of the Ardèche River - it’s one of the most enjoyable canoe journeys in Europe and regularly raved about by our groups. We’re conveniently located in an enviable position, with crags, caves and rivers all within walking distance and the pretty town of Ruoms, a 5 minute drive away. This, combined with our onsite swimming pool and a River Team renowned for their maturity and professionalism means you won’t find a better experience in the Ardèche. Or a better package!
Head to our exciting Adventure Centre on the edge of the Dordogne in South West France, where you will learn to sail picos, sit-on kayaks and get to grips with paddle boarding, as well as an array of other exciting activities including a high ropes course in the trees and gorge scrambling.
