Do you like nature, wide open spaces, the smell of pine trees and the song of cicadas? Then come and spend your next camping holiday in the Landes forest! Both a place of life and resources, relaxation and leisure, the Landes forest is a real source of inspiration for nature lovers, sportsmen and contemplative people.
Cycling, walking and horse riding
Take a breath! You are in the Landes forest! Enjoy the pleasures of walking, cycling or horse riding and discover the 3,500 km of hiking trails and marked circuits that cross the immense Landes forest. The joy of getting lost without getting completely lost! Around the Grands Lacs des Landes, near Biscarrosse, a whopping 13,000 hectares of forest have been developed, much to the delight of hikers. Discover also the Tucs circuit in Vielle-Saint-Girons, the paths of the Courant d'Huchet nature reserve, the Sore loop around the Petite Leyre or the lake and forest circuit in Mimizan, a stone's throw from our Landes campsite. Keep an eye out for a stork, otter or deer!
From Mimizan to Léon and from Léon to Capbreton, cycling enthusiasts can follow the Vélodyssée, with the ocean on one side and the Landes forest on the other. Other itineraries to discover by bike: the green way of Mios-Bazas, the mountain bike loop around Garein or the circuit of the old forges of Brocas, to mention only those, because the list is long. And for horse riders, the Landes forest is full of extraordinary places to discover with your feet up. You can find all these hiking guides in the Landes Tourist Offices.
