Located 45 min from Bordeaux international airport. « Le Bassin d’Arcachon » is a unique region, rich by its biodiversity, its traditions and its natural sites. It’s the perfect spot for beach lovers, nature lovers, sports lovers, food lovers, tradition lovers… Here are some of the must-visit spots of the area : la Dune du Pilat (Europe’s biggest sand dune), la Réserve Ornithologique du Teich (natural park dedicated to bird observation), L’Île Aux Oiseaux, i.e. Bird Island, and its famous huts on stilts (les Cabanes Tchanquées), the famous Banc d’Arguin (natural sand bank at the entrance of the bay), le Sentier du Littoral (a lovely biking path following the inner cost of the bay), the Leyre detla (a charming little river and its delta, also called Little Amazon), the forest of the Landes (the greatest pine forest), the oyster-farming ports and its famous oysters…
Our ecosystem is very fragile and threatened by various parameters including mass tourism in summer. We, at Arcachon Ecotours, grew up here and were lucky enough to discover this place off-season.
Therefore, our purpose is to share our Bay off the tracks, with an environmentally responsible mind in order to highlight and preserve biodiversity, cultural heritage and natural wealth of our territory
Benefits & Services
This aspect appears in the selection of activities we offer as we choose slow activities (canoe-kayaking, sailing boat, stand up paddle) rather than motorized ones.
Also, for your sightseeing, a professional guide will come along with you to share the story of the site rather than leave you alone observing it.
Regarding our picnics, we will offer short-circuit organic products or coming from local shops or local factories.
We will try to produce as few garbage as possible, recycling items to use as decoration… and share these actions with you to raise awareness to you as much as possible.
We can also set up an environmental / citizen action such as collecting trash on the beaches or removing invasive species, or an environmental seminary with naturalist guides or environment professionals to guide your meeting.
And we use our blog and our social networks to raise general environmental awareness and to share useful information about ecology, citizenship, living together…
