About Paris in Action

 

There's more to Paris than its most famous monuments and districts. At Paris in Action, our goal is to allow visitors, newcomers and longtime Paris residents to see a different side of the city they love. You'll discover interesting stories hidden in plain sight and uncover the quirkier sides of well-known places.

In each of our hunts, you'll navigate a different Paris neighborhood while completing challenges and solving clues about the places you visit. Our hunts challenge you to see and notice things that often go overlooked in a busy city like Paris. Whether you're visiting Paris for the first time or you've been living in the city for years, you're sure to have fun and learn something new.

 

HOW IT WORKS

STEP ONE: Choose a Hunt

Sign up for one of our hunts on our activity page. We offer city hunts for those who want to explore the city, language hunts, which help learners discover Paris while learning French and Walk & Talks, guided hunts that provide the perfect immersive environment for language learning.

STEP TWO: Have fun and discover Paris

On the day of the hunt, your team will meet at the predetermined starting point. If you signed up alone, you will be assigned to a team. This is a great way to meet new people! The goal of each hunt is to solve a series of clues related to the urban landscape. By the end of the hunt, you'll know much more about Paris than you did before.

STEP THREE: Reach the finish line

Teams have a fixed time in which to go to each location, solve as many clues as possible and get to the finish line. While the time limit ensures that groups finish the hunt within a reasonable time frame, our hunts are not designed to be a race. The hunt ends with a wrap up to explain all of the clues. The team that solves the most clues will win a prize.
