Can you find your way around? Discover it in the wood of Roule, near Rouen

Located 15 km from our hotel, take advantage of your stay to have fun with your family in a preserved natural setting: the wood of Roule!

Orienteering in the woods is ideal to refresh yourself in the summer under the shade of the trees, and to shelter you from a rain shower in the fall!

Darnétal, a small town near Rouen, is home to the Roule wood, where you can explore its 3 orienteering courses!

So, are you ready to work your brains and your legs?

How to participate?

In a very precise order, go in search of the beacons and the posts. Have you found them? Don't forget to validate your passage on each associated box!

To help you, you will have the essential equipment for an orienteering race: a map showing the position of the markers and a compass!


3 courses of different levels are proposed to you:

  • Green: for beginners
  • Blue: for the more experienced
  • Yellow: for those who are too strong!

The little extras of this activity:

  • Free, you can participate all year long.
  • You are not timed, so take your time!
    It's the perfect time to discover the fauna and flora that is hidden in this wood! You will find a splendid panorama on the city of Rouen and the valley of Aubette.

You want to spend the whole day there?

No problem!

If you did not bring a picnic, we suggest you choose between one of the 3 restaurants on the edge of the wood: Au plaisir cuisiné, l'Auberge Saint-Jacques or l'Auberge de Régine.
