Water thrills on Saint-Pardoux Lake

Saint-Pardoux Lake, less than 30 km north of Limoges, is an unspoilt natural site that's perfect for enjoying all sorts of outdoor activities. The latest-to-date, cable waterskiing, free from motorboat noise. 100% thrilling!

There are actually two cables. One is 225 metres long, offering a straight-line track, accessible as of 10 years' old – but you must be able to swim, of course. The other is 734 metres long, with a twisting path and includes a few modules so that even the most experienced can pull out all the stops.

If you're not at that level yet or you're a total beginner, no worries, the Lake Wakepark invites you to take it in your stride, starting with kneebording (where you sit on your knees) to bi-skiing and wakeboarding (similar to snow surfing).

You can pay for one-hour, half-day or full-day access and there are also 10-hour passes and seasonal passes for those who are totally addicted ;)

And a host of other sensations!

If you wish to vary your pleasures, Saint-Pardoux Lake is a genuine paradise for outdoor activities. Besides waterskiing and swimming, you can hire canoes, SUPs and pedal boats, go sailing, windsurfing, fishing, trekking or head up high with the treetop adventure. And, by booking, you can have a go at tennis, climbing, archery, horse-riding, swing golf, etc

Wow! Thank goodness you can take time out and relax on the beaches! Me, personally, I just love indulging in the wellness space at the swimming pool.

The Crocodile of the Lake

This is the name of the Tèrra Aventura's geocaching quest which will take you for a 2-3 hour discovery-walk around the lake (6 km). It's free, you just need to download the app to your phone and register to head off for an adventure. Here, the aim is to discover where Kaerquez Kaerqy (for those in the know), the kind crocodile is hiding. There are quite a few riddles to solve. You'll be accompaneid by Zéïdon, the "peace & love" poïz and his zamis. But Kaerquez isn't the only animal to look out for…
