  • English
    • Between the Lac de Léon and the ocean, the Courant d'Huchet is a preserved and atypical ecosystem. This Nature Reserve is home to original flora and fauna, specific to the mouths. This environment, which combines the fresh waters of the watercourse and the salty waters of the ocean, offers a refuge and a welcoming land for many aquatic and terrestrial species. At the mouth, you will contemplate a permanent spectacle between the entry and exit of the water, depending on the tides. It is also a great opportunity to discover this protected area, which is nicknamed the “Little Amazonia of the Landes”.

    Most unusual and beautiful place in the area. Bit of a walk to get there after you parked your car but absolutely worth it... even if you don't surf.

    We parked at Pechelebe by the courant d’huchet then walked to where it meets the sea. There’s a helpful route map which shows where the different walks are. We went back and did the others over the next few days. The easy walk through the pine forest is straight and to the left, the more picturesque (flowers, forna & wildlife) walk which runs closer to the river is on the right, its longer, bendy & energising in places especially where the sand is deep. We took the more picturesque route on our way out, & came back the easier way, according to my fit bit it was 15000 steps. Its breathtaking in places, it was one of our favourite walks in this part of France
