3 nature reserves:
RESERVE DE L'ETANG NOIR in SEIGNOSSE A walkway discreetly meanders through the mysterious forest, which is reflected in the lake's deep water.

Let the current take you with Les bateliers du courant du Huchet and cross “La Petite Amazonie Landaise”.
RESERVE DES MARAIS D'ORX in LABENNE This land has been left to grow wild again. It is a wintering site or migratory site, depending on the seasons.
Ecomusée de Marqueze : (in Sabre, 70 km)
Take the little train… which will take you to Marquèze. A little trip through the forest to discover what life was like in the Landes in the 19th century. A little journey back in time, ideal for the entire family!
You absolutely must see a local bullfight! Cheer on the écarteurs (dodgers) and the sauteurs (leapers) in the arenas of Soustans, Vieux Boucau or Dax, in pure Landes tradition.
Leisure activities for the entire family, such as tree top adventures ((Adrénaline Parc in Moliets for adults and children with tree top courses), the Water Park (Atlantique Parc in Seignosse) and karting in Magescq.
Taste local wine and enjoy the markets every morning in the summer, as well as nocturnal markets or farmers’ markets, etc.
Visit farms and canneries. In Soustons, Ferme Darigade, producer of peanuts and ducks, is open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10.30am.
