Tour Description: Self-guided

Bordered along the whole of its west coast by the Atlantic Ocean, the region of Aquitaine is bathed in a mild oceanic climate with the influence of the Gulf Stream. Mild temperatures all year round, enough rain to provide a green, floral environment, plenty of sunshine to enjoy the delights of the beach in spring, summer and autumn!

There is the sea of course, at the Bay of Arcachon. This bay forms an interior sea, the shores of which are dotted with seaside resorts and oyster-fishing ports. 

Just a short bike ride away, there is another giant. Not made of stone like the lighthouse but instead made of sand: the Dune du Pyla. Standing 104 metres high, it is Europe’s tallest dune. If you climb it – a task made easier by the steps – you will be rewarded by an unobstructed view over the ocean and the Bay on one side, and the Landes forest on the other. 

The wine region also has its own chapter – the winegrowing tradition being the founding factor of the heritage tha marked the life of many generations.
