Experience the thrill of being up in the trees with Parc du Domaine Vert’s family-friendly aerial obstacle course. This outdoor adventure located in the middle of a forest of tall pines will have children and families exploring a variety of elements including swinging logs, suspended bridges, climbing nets, and ziplines.

Each guest is instructed on how to use the climbing equipment (harness, two lanyards, two carabiners, and a pulley) and a lifeline (steel cable), which is used to attach themself to the course. Before heading off, the instructors get participants to practice on a demonstration course. Then, with a continuous security system, guests travel through the obstacles at their own pace. For those feeling a little apprehensive, the courses are set up to allow participants to progress no matter their fitness or skill level. There are exit points along the way.

Make sure to measure your children in order to book the correct course and each participant must submit a waiver which should be printed and completed beforehand. Once on-site, each family must enter one at a time, so that an employee can proceed to payment and can stamp the colour of the course for each participant.

Additional health and safety regulations are in place to fight against the spread of Covid-19. Measures include reduced capacity and smaller groups and the closure of drinking water, lockers, and picnic tables until further notice.
