Fantöm: The Hunt

Have you always dreamed of being a ghost hunter? Get ready for a totally new experience: Fantöm: The Hunt. Thermal binoculars in hand, you’ll comb the forest in search of lost souls haunting the Bourg de Pabos archeological site. This immersive activity plays out as a competition in small groups and the goal is to earn a higher number of points than your partner. Each meeting with a ghost brings stories and fascinating anecdotes, making this ghost-hunting mission a fun way to explore the past and live through history.

Escape Games

An escape room activity is truly the best way to live a day in the life of the seigniory’s French fishermen under threat of a war with the English. The moment you begin your fishing day, on a beautiful morning in 1758, you receive word that English ships have been spotted offshore. They will not hesitate to attack! Your mission: find the lost family treasure and hide away on higher ground. But you’d better hurry, because you only have 60 minutes! Can you solve the puzzles and find the treasure in time?
