About Your Trip
The Roya valley is arguably one of the best places in Europe for water sports and activities. Breil's fantastic location, close to the Mediterranean, the French Riviera and the Mercantour National Park in the Southern Alps, makes it a perfect base for an exceptional family holiday.
Every day there is a new adventure: canyoning, whitewater rafting, swimming and plenty of other exciting activities! The free day is a perfect opportunity to enjoy yet more outdoor activities; spend the day in Italy, swim in the warm Mediterranean sea, or take the train to Nice or Monaco and discover the French Riviera.

The minimum age on this trip is 7 years.
As many of the activities are on water all family members will need to be able to swim. Randonnee aquatique, sea kayaking and whitewater rafting are all non technical and should be easy to master. For canyoning you need to have a general level of fitness, for those who are less than 12 years old or don't feel like it they are up to the canyoning, Randonnee aquatique is a more gentle version of this activity. For all water based activities life vests are provided. Before each activity the group will receive instuctions and a safety briefing. The walking on this trip is gentle and more about discovering the flora and nature than a physical challenge.

Throughout the week we will be based at a comfortable campsite in Breil Sur Roya. Each chalet has 2 rooms with bunkbeds and a third room with two single beds. Bed sheets are not provided so please ensure you bring these with you. The chalet also has one main seating area, kitchenette equipped with a fridge, hobs, micro wave oven, electric coffee-maker and a sun terrace on which to enjoy an al fresco breakfast every day.

If you are the sort of family that enjoys meeting other families and have a passion for discovering new places and trying new activities, then you’ll love going on a Family Adventure. With a Tour Leader to take care of daily arrangements, you can relax and get on with the serious business of spending time with your family and enjoying your holiday. And it’s not just parents who take their children away; we’ve had a number of children travelling with just their grandparents too!
Itineraries are carefully planned to provide a good balance of activity and relaxation time. You can opt to stay with the group all the time or go off and do your own thing every now and then. Your leader will be on hand to help you find your way and organise optional activities. And if the local food isn’t pleasing everyone in the party, it’s usually possible to sneak off to the occasional pizza parlour or similar, to get something a little more familiar.
Our holidays are designed to take you to unusual or remote places, give you exciting experiences and allow you to make the most of your precious holiday time. As with all adventure holidays, there is inevitably an element of risk that you might not find on a resort-based package. However, safety is taken very seriously and our professional leaders will take all necessary precautions to run the trip safely. You will get to see wonderful sights, have the opportunity to interact with local people and create memories that will stay with you forever. Come with us and let us share our passion for travel with you!
