Discover 'Centre Permanent d'Initiation à l'Environnement' environmental centre (Permanent Centre for an Introduction to the Environment) France

This is the perfect opportunity to combine an understanding of the ecosystem with the practice of a sports activity.
In 1979, as the result of a local initiative, the 'Association pour le Développement et la Promotion de l'Environnement dans le Val d'Authie' (ADPEVA) was created to develop and promote the environment in the Val d'Authie area.
In 1994, the public benefits it offered were officially recognised and it became a 'Centre Permanent d'Initiatives pour l'Environnement' in 1997.
The main purpose of these centres is to promote humanistic environmental management.
So, at what point does sport come into the picture?
Val d'Authie CPIE decided to open up its environment to the public by means of sporting activities based on walking and hiking.
The initiative enables visitors, with energy to burn, to do just that by navigating, in a kayak for example, in the heart of a protected environment and observe (over the course of a half-day or full-day hike) the rare cultural and natural heritage of the area .
Qualified guides will accompany you on your walk, bike ride or canoe trip, explaining the flora and fauna of this amazing natural space along the way. Orienteering races are also organised to really bring you close to the wildlife around you. However, if you are really afraid of getting lost, you can always go fishing for trout instead, alone or as part of a group.
