Lagune de Contaut © Médoc Atlantique

The Contaut lagoon trail is in the heart of the nature reserve of the dunes and marshes of Hourtin. This footpath takes you through the royal osmonds and giant ferns... On a wooden footbridge over the marshes, children will feel like little researchers thanks to the equipment surrounding the water. And who knows, if you're good, you might see an Aquitaine cistude... Discover a programme of visits and discoveries in the middle of nature!
