Outings on foot or by boat

Here's a tip for freshwater sailing enthusiasts: an unforgettable outing aboard a traditional Landes boat known as a galupe awaits you, passing through all sorts of landscapes, each more delightful than the last! Set sail for a trip lasting 2, 3 or 4 hours, and come and enjoy the amazing biodiversity assisted by the boatman: herons, marshes, otters, reed beds, mink, forests, fish and more! Flora and fauna from all sorts of environments come together in this natural El Dorado, which is what makes this location such an unusual one. On foot, the walk starts from the sand dunes of the beach of Moliets. Following a marked trail, you'll gradually push your way into the pine forest along the banks of the Courant d’Huchet. However you look at it, the magic of the location will make for totally unforgettable camping holidays in the Landes!

Bathing around the Courant d’Huchet

Halfway between the seaside resorts of Moliets and Vielle-Saint-Girons, the Courant d’Huchet nature reserve has some superb bathing locations to discover after your walk! Don't forget to stop off quickly at the campsite's mini market to stock up for your picnic in the Landes, which you'll be able to enjoy while looking out to the waves at the mouth of the Courant d’Huchet. Fancy joining the surfers or having a go at windsurfing? The ocean beaches are perfect for taking on the waves! And going back up towards Vielle-Saint-Girons, at the unspoiled beach of la Lette Blanche you'll be in for some truly amazing views! Where the Landes forest meets the waves of the Atlantic, your getaway is complete, and all you have to do now is dive into that water!
