A fun-filled schedule of activities and adventure in Normandy

Voyagers’ experienced activity instructors present your group with a fun-filled activity week in Normandy, full of adventure such as paddleboarding, kayaking, team games on the beach, high ropes, climbing and the highlight—sand yachting along the beach! Not only do you have all these fantastic activities at your fingertips, delivered by a qualified team, your accommodation is just a stone's throw from the white sandy beach in our exclusive camping village.

We believe in immersing school groups in the local culture of the country they are visiting, so this programme takes advantage of the fantastic local attractions on offer. Your group will embark on a guided barefoot walk across the vast bay that leads to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mont Saint-Michel. Once there, you'll have time to explore the enchanting island with its twisting cobble-stoned streets. Head down to the local market and be immersed in the French language and sample the local produce or pick up a souvenir. See how one of Normandy's most famous exports is made and meet the friendly furry residents at a traditional goats cheese farm.

Students stay in tents accommodating up to four people. We provide sleeping mats to make your stay more comfortable but students will need to bring sleeping bags. Teachers will feel right at home glamping in fully-furnished coco tents with beds, electricity and a kitchen area complete with a fridge, microwave and tea and coffee making facilities.

Students enjoy well balanced home-cooked meals and packed lunches prepared fresh by our staff team. Meals are served al fresco or in our dedicated all-weather marquee.
