The adventure of Week’N Go !

Ten minutes from LA ROCHELLE, in the commune of LA JARNE, is Adventure Week’N Go !

Spend the day here with the family or with friends, in an exceptional, wooded site, to get your fill of all kinds of sensations and emotions.
With the high acrobatic park – better known as Vertig’O Park ? seven courses of varying difficulties amongst the trees, a rock climbing wall with three levels of difficulty, games of laser tag, an area of bouncy castles and other inflatables, a pedal kart track as well as a relaxing area with hammocks, deckchairs, picnic tables and a beach volley pitch.

Everything you could wish for!

And a further adventure is to live as in Asia, but in Charente-Maritime by trying a holiday in a ‘yourt’, in true Mongolian tradition.

In addition the Adventure Week’N Go organises sea trips ? kayaking or in a Polynesian pirogue ? with State qualified instructors in some of the most beautiful sites of the Antioche Straits. They also organise gliding activities that anyone can join in with called ‘The Stand Up Paddle’!

Since last year, ‘Week’N Go organises in association with other leisure associations (Sailkart, Catamaran, Quad etc) multi-activities to give you an active holiday in Charente-Maritime.

The Aquarium at La Rochelle

In the centre of the town, opposite the Old Port, is one of the biggest private aquariums in Europe. In a visit of two hours or more. a visitor can be transported to the depths of the ocean: the Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Tropics open out their astonishing colours and forms of life in three million litres of seawater.

This Centre d’Etudes et de Conservation des Espèces Marines ( a study centre to conserve marine species) invites visitors to become lost in wonder at the beauty and marine biodiversity: 12000 animals from fragile jellyfish to fascinating sharks to dream, understand, and learn about the sea. At every visit there are novelties and a free exhibition in the entrance hall.

A restaurant, Le Café de l’Aquarium, on the second floor overlooks the luxury yacht basin and is accessible independently of a visit. It offers a seasonal menu, with bio products, in a tropical atmosphere.
