Colline aux loups blancs

A day of high emotions in the great outdoors with four fascinating encounters: with wolves, birds of prey, owls and snails.

11.30 AM: Meet the wolves... All begins with the sound of howls echoing through the forest. Enjoy a unique opportunity to observe the behaviour of the pack as you come face-to-face with the wolves. A privileged few will be invited to venture into the territory of wolves: an experience that won't be easily forgotten.
2 and 4 PM: Flight of the birds of prey: eagles, falcons, kites and vultures soar through the air, gliding, performing acrobatics and nose-diving at breakneck speeds. Such aerial prowess can be witnessed thanks to the tradition of falconry: the birds and falconers work together to display their talent. A magnificent sight to behold!
AM + PM Slimy shells: the secrets of the snail revealed... a well-known creature, but it still manages to surprise people.

A walk in the 'valley of wolves', with a labyrinth, a wolf observation bridge and a house full of surprises for the wolves.

NEW : the marmots trail. Discover this funny animal with the zookeeper (2 show, morning and afternoon)
Fun nature trail: 'Nos amis les arbres vous parlent' (Our friends the trees speak to you). Children's games in the heart of the forest, including a wooden castle fortress and toboggans.

La Catiche, our log house, welcomes guests for lunch and teatime.
Picnics possible.
