    • AN EXCEPTIONAL AND PROTECTED SITE

      La Leyre is a protected gem. Discover this waterway with respect and take the time to understand this coastal river, its identity and its value... A true link between the forest and the ocean, navigable for nearly 90 km, it flows through the heart of the Natural Park. regional Landes de Gascogne before flowing into the Arcachon basin.

      Many facets
      The Petite Leyre and the Grande Leyre (labelled Rivière Sauvage), meet at the Hourc d'Eyre (water fork in Gascon), in the commune of Moustey in the Landes, to form a single whole. The amber-colored Leyre, under its protective deciduous tunnel known as the “gallery forest”, widens little by little until it forms a generous delta, a mosaic of salt meadows and exceptional natural environments.

      A registered site
      The entire Leyre valley, its gallery forest and its associated environments (tributaries, marshes, meadows, peat bogs, etc.) are recognized and classified as a Site registered under the Law protecting landscapes. Its remarkable habitats and its exceptional species also make it a site of European interest of great value, classified under Natura 2000 over 6000 ha, and RAMSAR for its delta.

      EMBLEMATIC SPECIES
      On the banks of the gallery forest, observe the Royal Fern, a primitive fern with a bright green color. Also watch out for the turquoise blue of the Calopteryx damselfish or the swift Kingfisher. Along the water, the aquatic grass beds are scattered to the rhythm of the movements of sand and gaps of light. They are probably hiding some glass eels or young Aquitaine pike. On a branch, taking the sun, you may have the chance to glimpse the European Pond Terrapin and on the sand, the traces of the discreet European Otter.

      A COMMON HERITAGE TO PRESERVE
      In such a treasure of nature, your discovery must remain discreet and peaceful. Breathe, enjoy... Take only your rubbish and leave no trace of your passage, on the water, on the banks or with the neighboring owners.

      Good practices
      • By canoe: find out about the state of the route, the weather, the water level and make sure you are in good physical condition and well equipped.
      • Respect the fauna, flora, other users/owners and report any incident or pollution to the Park.
      • Leave no trace of your passage (not even a GPX trace on the internet)

      Are forbidden :
      • Motor navigation
      • Night navigation
      • Fire and wild camping in the valley
      • Harvesting of protected species
