The Center Parcs forests are spectacular all year round, but we can’t deny that some of our activities really sing in the height of summer. There’s nothing quite like cruising around the lake while the water sparkles, or tearing up the Quad Biking track in glorious sunshine.
Take to the lake
Without a doubt, the lake is the place to be when the sun has got his hat on. If you fancy something leisurely, hire one of our Electric Boats which do all the hard work for you as you sail in comfort, taking in the best views of the Village.
Or if you’re in the mood for a little more action, why not try out Stand Up Paddle Boarding? It’s great fun and test your balance and co-ordination – not to mention your core strength. If you’re a natural, you might even get to try a paddle board headstand!
If you prefer your watersports with less chance of taking a dip, hire a canoe. You can take in laps of the lake at your own pace, dodging swans as you go.
A spot of adventure
There’s always something exciting to try at the Outdoor Activity Centre. Why not kick up some dust with Quad Biking (or Junior Quads for younger ones)? You’ll learn how to drive these tough, all-terrain quads before really putting them through their paces on our bespoke off-road track.
Or perhaps you’re a real-life Katniss Everdeen who can rack up the bullseyes in Target Archery. After being shown how to use a bow and arrow safely, you’ll compete in a series of games and tournaments to see if you’re a crack shot. Will you make it onto our highest scorers leaderboard?
If you’ve got a head for heights, you’ll love what goes down (or up?) at Action Challenge. Slip on a harness and helmet before making your way across Aerial Adventure, our obstacle course in the canopy. Suspended up in the trees, you’ll tackle rope bridges and ladders before making your final descent on a thrilling zipwire.
Save it for a rainy day
If the weather doesn’t behave, it doesn’t mean you have to stop play on your break. Take a trip to the Pottery Painting Studio for all-weather family fun. Choose a piece of pottery from our wide selection and let your creative side out with brushes, sponges and stamps. Once you’re finished, we’ll professionally fire and glaze it for you to take home and treasure.
