Walking tour


Before you leave :

  • Check the hunting periods and, if necessary, the hunting areas (More information on the Pas-de-Calais Hunting Federation) ;
  • Choose an itinerary adapted to your physical abilities;
  • Find out about the weather conditions: ESCAPADE 62 provides a widget with the weather forecast for the area, site or route of your choice;
  • Choose suitable shoes, clothes and poles;
  • Take a backpack with water and snacks.

During the hike :

  • Do not light fires in wooded areas, fields, etc.
  • Respect other users
  • Do not leave the marked trails to avoid damaging the natural environment and private property.
  • Respect the fauna and flora: no picking or trampling!
  • Don't throw anything on the ground, put your rubbish in the bins or, if you can't find it, take it with you.
  • Many of these recommendations are valid for all the outdoor activities listed on ESCAPADE 62.
  • However, as each activity has its own specificities, you will find below some useful sources of information.


Additional information specific to each activity :


The Pôle Ressources National Sports de Nature (PRNSN) also has a "space activities" containing very complete technical sheets: 

Public Service Points (PSP): keep an eye out !


Emergency services must be alerted quickly during sporting events, but also on a daily basis in outdoor areas, sites and itineraries.

The Pas-de-Calais Departmental Fire and Rescue Service (SDIS) has developed an innovative system to optimise rescue operations in the natural environment: the Public Rescue Points.


These plates with a geo-referenced code allow the person in distress to be quickly geo-located by the SDIS 62 call centre. The emergency services can thus adapt the intervention system (vehicle, access, etc.) according to the situation.

The Audomarois marshland was the first natural site to be equipped with this 100% "made in Pas-de-Calais" invention. There are now 600 PSPs spread throughout the area.

The SDIS continues to deploy PSPs in the department every year. Some of the practice sites listed on ESCAPADE 62 are already equipped with PSPs, such as the Olhain departmental park and the Marcel Cabiddu nature and leisure park.
