Hiking trip in the south of France
From the Gironde to the Hérault via the Landes and the Pyrénées-Orientales, the southern half of France is a land of hikers: its reliefs, its climate, its paths of Compostelle and its coastal paths promise, South-West in the South-East, the most beautiful hikes.
Hiking holidays Landes
With its unspoiled landscapes, miles of forest trails and routes between ocean, dunes, lakes and pine forests, the Landes are an ideal destination for outdoor enthusiasts and especially for hikers. Our campsites Landes, by the sea or lake, are ideal steps during your stay itinerant. You can also consider beautiful family walks or days of hiking during your vacation in one of the Grand Sud establishments. Next to the Oyats in Capbreton, the Tuc circuit of the nine churches offers you for example a pleasant loop of a little more than 9 km for 2h30 of walking, to discover the banks of the Boudigau and the dune environment. On the Mimizan side, hikes of 3h00 or 3h30 also await you: the circuit of the lake and the forest in the grounds, and the circuit of the Mailloueyre side beach. Many circuits await lovers of beautiful walks around Seignosse: on the edge of the beach or around the ponds, each circuit makes you discover varied landscapes. That of the rose of the sands, ideal for a walk of one hour in family, makes you cross the first cordon of forest behind the dunes. Do not miss these beautiful hikes during your stay in one of our five campsites in the Landes!
Hiking holidays Gironde
Cap Ferret and the Arcachon basin offer preserved environments that are pleasant to walk on foot to discover the different biotopes and the hidden heritage. During your stay in the Gironde campsite Les Embruns, many hiking trails are to discover, from the long hike for experienced walkers to the rejuvenating family outing. Along the Cap-Ferret, the primer of the dunes is for example a landscape interpretation trail that runs from north to south over a little over 9 km. It has a view of the Pilat dune. In the immediate vicinity of the campsite Les Embruns, the Pres Salés d’Arès-Lège Reserve is also an ideal site for walks and hikes: lasting only 40 minutes, this course on the coastal path is especially an exciting stroll observation to do, why not, family. A little longer, the circuit of the canal of the ponds borrows a section of the road to Compostela. Plan a walk of about two hours without any particular difficulties. Facing Île aux Oiseaux, the Réservoirs de Piraillan also offer several circuits to discover this set of salt water and woodland islets.
Hiking holidays Hérault
At Lake Salagou, outdoor activities are queen. The departures of group excursions are often even directly from the campsite. The must-see circuit is the tour of Lake Salagou from Clermont-L’Hérault: a 27 km loop reserved for walkers, since it will take more than 8 hours to get through it. But the landscapes encountered are well worth the detour! If you want to make a shorter hike, or opt for an easy walk with children, many circuits are also waiting around Clermont-L’Hérault or nearby: 10 minutes from the campsite, a walk a little more than 3 km around Villeneuvette allows you for example to discover the hydraulic remains of the former royal factory. 3 km from the campsite, a beautiful half-day hike, of medium difficulty, offers you to discover the capitelles scattered between the vineyards on the plateau overlooking the lake Salagou. The start and return of the hike are next to the dam. Beautiful panoramas in perspective!
