The Utopia park of Camors !

I have mentioned the park and pond in a previous general post on my beautiful Morbihan, but really needs a post of its own, With this in mind I set up today to see a bit more of it with my boys, my Dad, and our dog Rex, This is Pentecost holiday in France and families were out as well as many events all over, choices choices,,,We took the more peaceful one into nature, I like to tell you a bit more on Utopia Parc and the Etang du Petit Bois of Camors !!

The town Camors is located about 8 km from my house! It is surrounded by the towns of Baud, Pluvigner and La Chapelle-Neuve. It is largely covered by two forest areas, the national forest of Camors and the forest of Floranges. Mysterious forests, they hide many strange stones, so-called magic trees, and are said to be populated by korrigans. The legend even says that the forest of Camors was the domain of “Bluebeard”.  Perhaps you will see them from the top of the trees of Utopia Parc? Only 30 minutes from the bigger cities of Vannes and Lorient.

There is a wonderful outdoor Utopia parc which we have entered it but did not any physical activity . It was the first tree climbing park to emerge in my lovely Bretagne! To date, Utopia Parc attracts locals and tourists alike thanks to its entertaining activities such as Laser-tag, An outdoor Laser-Game, with facilities for hiding, and various scenarios to make the games even more fun! Tree climbing: To explore the natural area seen from above by following several routes. A continuous lifeline allows you to enjoy the moment in complete safety. QuickFlight , an attraction for thrill seekers. They will be able to jump into the void from a 22 meters high platform. After 2 meters of free fall, a secure braking system restrains the descent. Adrenaline rush guaranteed, they said !

You can enjoy seven tree climbing courses from 2 to 18 meters high, for an amateur or more adventurous walk. Climb, jump, slide on a zip line… and fill up on sensations! Utopia Park also offers a laser tag, or outdoor laser game, with plenty of hiding places to deceive the enemy. The quick flight invites you to try free fall. Ready to jump off a 22 meters tower? Chills guaranteed! And for the less adventurous, an educational trail offers a nice walk in the forest to discover its fauna, its flora… and, who knows, its elves!

Utopia Ecoparc Aventure is the great idea out in Camors , a tree climbing accessible from 2 years old; and many other surprises. And since the effort is hollow, the Guinguette du Petit Bois offers dishes, tapas, cocktails but also concerts in the summer. The official Utopia parchttps://utopia-parc.fr/

Right by the above you have the Etang du Petit Bois, or the little wood pond where fishing is allowed and has picnic tables kayak activities etc. I have not tried this yet. However, I have walked all over the site, The Petit Bois site with its 2 ponds has ideal characteristics for discovering fishing. The density of white fish as well as regular releases of rainbow trout (in the large pond) make it easy to catch the first fish. There is the small pond call Ruisseau du Moulin la Motte (windmill of sod stream) , and the bigger Etang du Petit Bois (little wood pond).

The fishing season and al can be found in the fishing federation of Morbihan on the pondhttp://morbihan.federationpeche.fr/923-aappma-la-truite-baudaise.htm

The Etang du Petit Bois is a pond where it is possible to fish, picnic areas, a sports course and a nearby tree climbing park. Also, there is the Camping park de Petit Bois ,(not stayed yet), a small campsite with less than 50 pitches on an area of just over one hectare. Located on the edge of the national forest of Camors, it is the ideal place for nature lovers.

Right between the road that cuts the two ponds , Ruisseau du Moulin la Motte and the Etang du Petit Bois , there is a nice historical wash house or lavoir. As there are others including dolmens and menhirs in the forest of Camors.  The city of Camors on its heritage see lavoirs /washhouseshttps://camors.fr/fr/rb/1157184/patrimoine-95
