Tarzan for a day.

We all remember watching Tarzan as a kid, right? Raise your hand if you wanted to be able to soar and jump through the trees like he could. Pretty much everyone in the world ever is now raising their hand. Well you'll be glad to know that there is a way to do this.

It happened when I went on a little school trip many years ago, we went to a place called Bourbaki. It's a beautiful forest where you can do so many different activities like walking, hiking, doing assault courses, fishing etc..
My school took my class there so that we could do Accrobranche which is like an assault course in the trees. You're geared up and hooked onto a wire which makes its way through the forest, getting higher and higher. You have to overcome big and small obstacles in order to get to the finish line, and it's probably the most fun I've had in a forest.

For people with a fear of heights or fear of falling to their deaths, this may seem a bit scary but it's alright cause there are different levels of Accrobranche.
The more experienced people can go straight to the highest level, this involves being pretty high up in the trees and having to overcome some really tricky obstacles. The less experienced can start small, by jumping around on a smaller course that's only about 2 metres from the ground, and then there's the beginners and children course which is only about half a meter high.
