    • The Courant d'Huchet, a veritable umbilical cord which flows through the Landes towns of Vielle Saint Girons, Léon and Moliets et Maa over more than 600 hectares, is one of the sites, classified as a nature reserve, the most diversified and the most richness of the region, whether in terms of ecosystems or biotope.

      The trip in a galupe (traditional flat-bottomed boat) along the arm of water linking the Léon pond and the Atlantic Ocean allows you to discover a succession of landscapes between swamps, peat bogs and dunes, where many unsuspected animal species nest and protected including 200 species of birds, otters, mink, gray herons, pond terrapins (turtles) and a number of fish.
      Indeed the current is full of them and has become a popular place for fishermen: the trap was used by fishermen to catch eels.

      Also, the boatmen will make you discover "the Landes Amazonia" particularly rich in flora with in particular its famous bald cypresses, its arums as well as other varieties... It constitutes a natural reserve appreciated by botanists.

      Descend it in a galup to the dune, it's 12 km of unforgettable exotic walk...

    For just €17 you get a 2 hour boat trip across the lake and down the courant with your own boatman. It was just an awesome experience.

    The staff is absolutely discourteous. The lady on the phone should learn some manners.

    We had a wonderful, gentle time with clear, attractive explanations from a solar boatman!!! We are heading back to our Swiss mountains, with a piece of Landes heritage and cultural heritage... thank you very much for this beautiful sharing 🙏
