More than just an education

A trip with Rockley Adventure isn’t just about watersports, it brings so much more to developing the ‘whole child’ and enhancing other areas of the National Curriculum.

Our French centres are based in the beautiful Landesregion, an amazing ‘outside classroom’ for your students to experience and explore.

So much more to experience

In the north part of the region there is Bordeaux, on the River Garonne and classified as a ‘City of Artand History’.Home to one of Europe's biggest 18th-century architectural urban areas there are plenty of beautiful historicbuildings and churches to see and being at the heart of the Bordeaux wine region even has a Museum of Wine! 

Nearby is the seaside town of Arcachon with its four districts named after the 4 seasons, its bay famous for the oyster farms and close by the Dune de Pyla. This amazing geographicalfeature is the highest dune in Europe reaching 107m and stretching 2500m has to be worth a visit. With vistas south as far as the northern coast of Spain and north and east over the top of the forest canopy across the Bay of Arcachon it is a geographicalfeature your students won’t forget!

Towards the south of the Landes region there is the coastal town of Hossegor with some of the best surf beaches in the world, count and observe wave patternsand see in awe the power of the ocean at first hand with its associations for maths, science and geography.

Biarritz,the most southerly conurbation in the region, is renowned for its culture, sport and good food. Watch Basque Pelota, with the ball travelling up to 200km per hour (120mph), an exciting experience with this traditional game which dates back to the ancient Greek culture. Experience different foods incorporating both French and Spanish influences and from a geographical perspective, observe how the lower lands of the Landes region builds up to the mountains of the Pyrenees which rise to over 3400m! 

Created in 1967 the Parc National des Pyrenees covers 467 square kilometres ensuring the preservation of its valleys, tarns and mountain pastures and endangered species such as the Griffon Vulture, Izard (a type of mountain goat) and Brown Bear for future generations. There are also many caves with historical paintings and another fantastic geographical feature, Europe’s longest navigable underground river, Riviere Souterraine de Labouiche with at its end the Cascade Salette, which tumbles into a sparkling turquoise pool. Depending on rainfall, the waterfall’s speed can vary anywhere from 100L to 1500L litres per second.
