Au Vieux Campeur
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Hikers, spelunkers and wannabe explorers should make this the starting point of all future journeys. An agglomeration of around 30 shops centred on the Maubert-Mutualité métro station, Au Vieux Campeur is the last word in sports and outdoor gear: this is where Parisians come to get their crampons and cross-country skis. Every imaginable open-air activity is covered, and every budget catered for; if you're intimidated by the sheer breadth of choice, expert staff are on hand to guide you. It may have mushroomed into a vast operation, but Au Vieux Campeur proudly remains an independent, family-run institution, and you'll encounter none of the impersonal service (not to mention inflated prices) that plague the big high street stores.
