    Of multiple rides available for all levels, distances and varying difficulties. Passages covered under trees, others more in height with life points, lots of rocks... surely to come and return again and again and always find something new to contemplate

    Top! Couple with 2 young children 4 and 5 years, we discovered the world of Christian Perlwitz, and his pack of sled dogs. A walk in the kart towed by dogs, all as Gentiles and workers, each like the others. A great moment of sharing between the hitch preparation and care of dogs after the ride. My kids have loved them! An original and very affordable activity for the young and the old. Deserves to be known!

    300 km of paths marked in blue by the association friends of the forest of Fontainebleau. 300 kms, which you will discover one of the most beautiful forest of France, more than 700 rocks and listed sites. The trees called remarkable, caves, shelters of carriers, fountains etc. etc... With a little luck you will see boars, deer, deer, kids and hits of squirrels. And if you like rock climbing or rock climbing, you will be served. I told you it's 25,000 hectares not to be missed.
