Our comprehensive range of equipment at Le Lac caters for a wide range of abilities and ages and Le Lac Mimizan’s location makes it the perfect choice for groups looking for a mix of land and water-based activities. The highly flexible programme can be made as challenging as your group requires!
Le Lac Mimizan is our newest centre in France and, just like our other French centres, is based on a campsite on the shores of a fresh water lake close to the dramatic Atlantic beaches of the Landes region.
Our watersports activities launch directly onto the lake and the sheltered location provides an ideal introduction to our range of watersports activities from dinghy sailing to paddle boarding. It also provides the opportunity to explore the shoreline of Château Woolsack or land for lunch at a quiet, unspoilt beach.
Le Lac Mimizan is uniquely situated adjacent to one of the region’s fantastic high ropes parks with more than 100 different stages set high in the spectacular pines. Suitable for a range of ages from children to adult, this is a fantastic additional activity for groups. Le Lac Mimizan also benefits from a beautiful 9-hole golf course right next door – perfect for our teachers to take some time out away from their group and work on their handicap.
The forest surrounding Le Lac is criss-crossed with tracks and trails providing ideal excursions by bike. With the Atlantic only 5km away it is possible to cycle all the way to the beach. Combine this with having a handful of bikes fitted with board racks, this is most definitely the perfect centre for groups wanting to add surfing to their programme!
