Our shopaholic explorers are in luck! Our hotel is surrounded by the best shopping destinations in the area. There is something to suit every taste and budget.
Located only 10 minutes away from the Explorers Hotel, the Val d’Europe shopping centre is a place worth visiting. With its 190 shops and 30 restaurants, you will easily find what you are looking for, whether it be fashion, well-being, beauty, decoration or high-tech products.

Are you a fashion and luxury enthusiast constantly on the lookout for good deals? La Vallée Village is the perfect place for you, ideally located just 10 minutes from the Explorers. This village full of high-end brands offers you a unique open-air shopping experience with the finest designer brands.

Numerous restaurants and cafés are also available for a tasty break between purchases.
Do you prefer cultural and historical visits? Here are four varied suggestions to suit your tastes.
Dive into the fascinating depths of the ocean at the Sea Life Paris Aquarium, in the heart of the Val d’Europe shopping centre, a mere 10 minutes from the Explorers Hotel. Both young and adult explorers will be amazed by the diversity of the nearly 5,000 marine animals to be found there. Explore eight themed areas and discover around 350 species, from colourful fish to impressive sharks, sea turtles, rays and penguins. You will also have the chance to watch feedings and take part in educational activities on the preservation and protection of our marine heritage.
For those with a passion for history, a visit to the Great War Museum in Meaux is a must. Located only 25 minutes from the Explorers Hotel, this museum retraces the history of the First World War through captivating exhibitions and collections. Take a trip back in time for a few hours, and (re)discover the key events of this tumultuous period in our history.
At the Parc des Félins, you will encounter over 300 animals, with 26 different feline species, including white tigers, panthers and lynxes. Make sure not to miss the 60 lemurs that roam freely in the central area of the park, and take the opportunity to say hello to the many goats that can be found in the area dedicated to farm animals.
The second park, Terre de Singes, is also home to 300 animals. You can see around fifty macaques and many other primates from Africa, South America and Asia. There are also more than 100 birds in a gigantic aviary, waiting for you to feed them by hand if you wish to do so.
Do we really need to mention this must-see destination when visiting the region? Around 35 minutes by RER from the Explorers, the capital is packed with family-friendly places to visit. Stroll through the typical streets, visit the many museums and the most famous monuments, and relax in the parks and gardens at the heart of the city, or on the banks of the river Seine.
