From white water rafting with accommodation in a yurt to quad biking, go-karting and accrobranching, swing into action this summer holidays with her adventure selection, Teensbox offering money off vouchers
There are plenty of fun outdoor activities for teenagers in Burgundy but they can be hard to find and sometimes difficult to organize. Here is the Teensbox selection of ideas for a weekend or couple of days, guaranteed to burn up some of that excess energy and get the kids away from their screens and gizmos to make the most of the great outdoors over the summer holidays.
The pricing is for two persons and in some instances an adult must accompany the teenager. You can opt for just the activity pack or activity and accommodation. Teensbox offers discount vouchers saving a substantial amount of euros but you do the booking yourself. Catherine Zivi is always there to help if a language difficulty arises. The venues are spread throughout the Burgundy region, a great way to explore a new area.
