What to expect

After your guide picks you up at your accomodation in Bordeaux, head to the bay of Arcachon. A popular bathing location on the Atlantic coast 55 kilometers (34 miles) southwest of Bordeaux, it has fine sandy beaches, a mild climate and boasts belle époque architecture.

Upon arrival, discover the picturesque Oyster Sheds where you can sit and taste fresh Arguin Banc accompanied with fresh baguette, lightly salted butter and a glass of white wine!

For lunch, your guide will certainly suggest one of the many high quality sea food restaurants located along the shore. There are also fantastic restaurants facing the sand beaches that can be booked by your guide in the morning.

In the afternoon a number of options are possible: either Head to Pilat-sur-mer and climb the Dune de Pilat (or du Pyla), nearly 3 kilometres long, 500 metres wide, reaching 107 metres in height, and moving inland at a rate of 5 metres a year, that will grant you the most stunning views of the bay and enchnting pine forests. Or, book a unique boat ride on board a local “Pinasse”, the traditional boats of the Bay of Arcachon.

At the end of the day, you'll be dropped off at your accommodation in Bordeaux
