An exercise larger than life


Practiced in a natural environment, 3D archery (or 3D shooting) is performed on a course made up of 24 targets. These are arranged at a variable distance (between 5 and 45 m) and are represented by animals. From the small rodent to the most imposing animals, these foam targets are available in real size in order to offer the most authentic scenario possible. Each archer has two arrows per target. Depending on the part of the animal affected, the archer gets 5, 8, 10 or 11 points: the archer with the highest score wins! The course is run by peloton: once all the participants have shot their arrows, they can then record their score and move on to the next target.




3D archery, for whom and why?


The great strength of 3D shooting? Permanent contact with nature. Forests, plains, mountains… Nothing like it to clear your head and relax after a busy week! It's a fact: spending a few minutes in contact with greenery significantly lowers your levels of cortisol, also known as the stress hormone. Walking in the fresh air and sharing moments of conviviality: this is the recipe for relieving the pressure, while having fun.


Another advantage of 3D shooting: it works rigor and concentration, as well as the ability to find one's way in space. For the more nervous among you, it allows you to refocus and channel your energy. Finally, this sport uses all the muscles and helps improve coordination of movements and balance. Whether you are a novice or an experienced shooter, this 3D archery trip is for all levels: learn or perfect your technique with a renowned archer.



3D shooting course: an expert at your side


Coach for over 20 years, Emmanuel Lecuyer is what we call a true enthusiast: he has obtained a total of 53 titles and medals during his career. Sacred world champion, he now helps archers of all levels to progress through courses and themed trips.


During this 100% archery trip, you will develop the following skills:


  • strengthen your concentration;
  • manage your time correctly;
  • know what strategy to adopt on the course;
  • learn to estimate distance;
  • set goals.


Afraid of not being up to it? Rest assured: our trainer adapts to everyone's level. After an initial analysis, individual technical advice will be provided to you. Over the course of your stay, you will be able to overcome your difficulties and strengthen your strengths.
