The Landes bring to mind the bike rides surrounded by the Pines, the waves and surfing, the vast sand beaches et the large dunes, and the lakes… It also evokes a whole countryside gifted with a strong provincial folklore, history and gastronomy.

Take your bikes to discover the Vélodyssée, the cycle path along the landes’ coast. Ride among the pines’ forests to go to the market or the beach.

Les Vélos Mignon is available in the Villages sous les Pins for the rental of your bikes, you can also find a map of the cycle paths around.

Get to discover the Courant d’Huchet, also called “the Landese Amazonia”. It’s one of the natural gem of the region, linking Léon’s Lake to the Ocean, where it’s flowing into on Moliets’ beach. In a Galupe, a flat bottom small boat, you can cross this peaceful river full of legends.
