A glass blowing workshop

A glass blowing workshop in l’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue

Guillaume, a glass blower in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, gives you the chance to become a glass blower for a short time. This fascinating art delights young and old, teenagers and adults alike. During the workshop, each member of the family, all artisans for a day , can blow their own Christmas bauble in the colours of their choice and collect their creation the next day, after it has been cooked.

Véloz, at Séguret

Everyone can go on a mountain-biking adventure in the Dentelles de Montmirail! Teenagers won’t be moaning when it comes to taking an electric bike out with a “boost” mode to help with climbs, and you can give one of them a GPS to follow the path of the circuit Jean-Pierre from Véloz will have sent them in advance.
There are therefore lots of ways to discover the wonderful natural spaces and breath-taking views of the Vaucluse without dragging your feet during a family hike.

Le Naturoptère,

The Naturoptère and its elegant architecturefully eco-designed, is worth visiting in itself, but the themed gardens, the constantly renewed exhibitions, the workshops and naturalist walks and events on multiple themes throughout the year make the Naturoptère a lively and exciting place people like to revisit each season.

Also take advantage of visiting Naturoptère, its gardens, spider exhibition, miniatures garden… and watch flash presentations on multiples themes which take place all day with slots every 15 minutes. There is also a calendar of discovery workshops all year round.

The Via Ferrata of Cavaillon

This vertical route along the cliff of the Saint Jacques Hill has one distinguishing feature : you can access it directly from the town centre of Cavaillon. The route is made up of two parts: the « via natura » (open to people above 1.30m), accessible to all, and the « via souterrata » (people above 1.50m), for the most athletic. The views from Mont Ventoux as far as the Alpilles are stunning, and orientation boards on the terraces are scattered along the path with information about the fauna, flora and local heritage.

Good to know

Access is free and equipment (harness, helmet and insurance system) can be reserved at AB Cycles Outdoor or Cyclix (closed on Sundays).

Escape Game at the Roman theatre in Orange

Practical information

Price: €5 + entrance fee (€11.50 / reduced fee: €9.50 / family pack: €38)

A tour of the Roman theatre in Orange takes on a completely different dimension during an escape game. During this activity, the entire family is mobilised around a major mission: to thwart the curse of Teutobod by solving challenges and enigmas! The escape game is designed to take visitors to every corner of this site steeped in history, listed as a World Heritage Site by Unesco. It enables them to discover and learn while having fun.

Another advantage is when you opt for a combined Roman Theatre and Odyssée Sonore ticket you can experience an immersive video mapping show at dusk (Family Pack 2 adults and 2 children available)
