More than 3500 km of marked trails through the Landes. These are local loops, offering different levels and various durations. These loops are marked in blue hiking, have a directional signage, and are maintained for you.
Cycling is the ideal way to discover the Landes family. First, because the department is flat and because it has the pine tree shelter from the wind tracks the sun or any raindrops.
The Landes bike paths invite between the pine trees, golf Moliets Messanges villages and Old Boucau. They join the beautiful beaches of Seignosse and Hossegor, surf, and the bustling port of Capbreton. It then tracks or roads to reach Labenne Tarnos Boucau, Adour and the Basque Country.
From Labenne, it is very easy to walk up or Tarnos Ondres the canal or the Boudigau Capbreton to ride very nice especially on Saturday morning to visit the craft market.
Children can move freely from the fact that this section is entirely in the forest.
Surf, paddle, kitesurf or bodyboard ....... you will not get bored!
The history of surfing and Landes are closely related. By the late 50s, early surfers discover the quality of Landes south waves. The absence of a continental shelf allows the wave to sweep with all its power. Surf schools as Surf Oceanides to Capbreton allow beginners to learn to practice safely. They will lend: the board 'waxée' (the wax is the wax that is applied to the surface where the rider puts his feet) combination and the 'leash' (the rope that connects the surfer to his board and s attachment to the heel of the back foot with a velcro allowing the surfer to recover his board quickly after a fall).
Surfing is a sport governed by rules, please respect them.
