Are you looking for an outdoor activity to do with your family not far from Colmar? I believe I know exactly what you need: the adventure tree climbing park Form’Aventures, located in Schnepfenried in the Valley of Munster.

Schnepfenried is a ski resort in the Alsatian Vosges located at an altitude of 1,000 m. Needless to say that the view from there on the surroundings mountains is quite stunning! The adventure park is located at the heart of the resort and offers to visitors tree climbing, mountain biking, hiking, archery, Nordic walking, snowshoeing… It is also possible to do straight up tree climbing (there are climbing grips fixed on some trees).

There are several paths of adventure tree climbing: three paths for children, a green one, two blues, a red, a black and 360° panoramic one. There is something for everyone, children and adults of all levels! The panoramic route is quite unique: it is mainly made up of zip-lines (there are 13 of them), it is aerial (20 meters above ground) and will allow you to go all around the park. You will also get a chance to enjoy beautiful viewpoints over the mountains. It’s quite impressive, but pretty amazing!

The park is equipped with a system of a continuous cable life line, to avoid having to detach and reattach carabiners. You will tie up your rope at the beginning of the course and it will follow you until the end without doing anything. It’s really practical and reassuring! In case of problems, one of the the instructors on the ground can take action. My friend trying out the activity with me got stuck in the middle of a zip-line (the highest one, to make things more interesting), because she missed her arrival and someone came to pick her up in under 5 minutes. It’s really reassuring!

I liked

  • Nice paths that people from all levels can enjoy
  • Continuous cable life line
  • Nice environment with beautiful viewpoints

I liked a little less

  • Nothing!

Getting here

By car

The address is as follows: Station du Schnepfenried 68380 Sondernach. The station and the park are well marked from the Valley of Munster. It is:

  • 35 km from Colmar (about 55 minutes drive)
  • 56 km from Mulhouse (about 1h10 drive)
  • 110 km from Strasbourg (about 1h45 drive)
By public transport

It is not possible 🙁

Feeling peckish?

If you are feeling peckish, there are several restaurants in the station, such as the restaurant Panoramic (I haven’t tried it yet) and the Ferme-auberge Deybach a bit further (and that I really recommend!). It is also possible to use the yurt in the park Form’aventures to have a picnic (provided you buy a drink) or if you are in a group, to take a meal or celebrate a birthday for example (by reservation).
