Canopying in Parc Sainte Assise, Vert Saint Denis, Paris, Ile-de-France France
Can you imagine being right outside Paris performing canopying in a forest? It is possible in Parc Sainte Assise, Vert Saint Denis. It is an amazing huge park that serves a lot of different sporting activities. From a short walk to the forest to the most extreme route in canopying. You will pass from walkways consisted of bridges between trees in the canopy of the forest.
The walkways are in their biggest part linked up with platforms that are inside or around the trees. The walkways were originally intended to be accesses to the upper regions of ancients forests for scientists that where conducting canopy research. Today they serve as tourist walkways or a chance for one of the coolest extreme sports, canopying.
One very difficult to ride course is in Parc Sainte Assise. The level of the trail is almost impossible. The adrenaline course is not made for everyone. In order to come up with this challenge, you must be in excellent physical condition and use your muscles.
It is training in a dramatic atmosphere, where difficult workshops follow one another without respite. However those who reach at the end, they will be rewarded with a glide on a giant rope of 255 m /837 ft long, bordering with 60 kph/37.3 mph. Big hearts and big arms. Will you make it to the end?
