Explore the Landes forest differently


The Landes Regional Natural Park is truly exceptional. There is no shortage of sports activities. But why not take an electric scooter with Trottin'Bisca .

If you want to rent bicycles near your place of stay, it's here . Less ecological but more unusual, try a quad bike ride .

If you have a little more time, the Black Pond reserve is less known but is definitely worth a look.

Climb to 7th heaven


We ended our trip in style, with our heads in the clouds. A hot air balloon ride is a must, and just the preparation is a magical moment ... A unique experience to live with the Blue Horizon Balloons . And for different sensations, we board an ULM , with the Flight of the Eagles .

Aviation in all its forms fascinates you. Stop at Dax . The Army and Helicopter Light Aviation Museum has an exceptional collection of 40 old airplanes and helicopters . It is a veteran who will visit you and tell you the stories and anecdotes about these extraordinary machines.
