How long does the activity last?
The activity of the courses in the trees lasts 3 hours and 30 minutes. The first half hour will be used for the installation of the equipment and the initiation period, where you will be explained the safety rules of the park and the operation of your equipment. Then during the following 3 hours, you will have access to all the courses in the trees for which you meet the age or height criteria.
What is the minimum age?
The minimum age is 5 years old. Then, the older the child, the more routes he will have access to during the 3 hours of activity.
How should we dress?
We advise you to wear comfortable clothes (pants or Bermuda shorts, sweaters covering the entire waist), closed and tied shoes (no sandals are accepted). Long hair should be tied back at all times.
What should I bring?
All the equipment you need to participate in the activity is provided. In addition to a comfortable outfit, we suggest that you bring with you a water bottle that can be attached to a harness using a carabiner, gloves and mosquito repellent, which are also all for sale on site.
Do we have to fill out a risk form?
All of our visitors must complete a Risk Acceptance Form (RAF) before performing any activities. The FAR informs you of the physical and psychological conditions to be observed as well as the dangers relating to the activity. You can print it out below and bring it with you already completed to your activity, or fill it out manually when you arrive at Arbraska.

Are the activities monitored?
A guide will be in charge of giving you the initiation period explaining the safety rules and the operation of the equipment, and taking you through an initiation course. Once the rules are well understood, you will be able to progress in the courses independently, with supervision carried out by the guides at ground level or in the courses.
What happens if it rains?
At Arbraska, it’s rain or shine! The rain does not prevent the practice of activities, which are just as safe in the rain. However, in case of lightning, thunderstorms or high winds, we will have to close the courses until it passes, then you can go back to having fun! If this is the case, there is no refund for the period of time you have been arrested.
Can the children do the tree trails alone?
Children aged 14 and under must be accompanied by an adult throughout the activity. Visitors between the ages of 14 and 18 require the signature of an adult of full age on their Risk Attestation Form (FAR). Parents not wishing to do the activity can accompany their children from the ground free of charge.
