1. From Bordeaux: Arcachon Bay Morning Tour

Depart Bordeaux at 8:30 AM and take a 50-minutes drive to the majestic Dune of Pilat at Pyla-sur-Mer in Arcachon Bay. Climb the highest sand dune in Europe for a panoramic view (known locally as the “Bassin”) of an inland sea open to the Atlantic Ocean.

Famous for its oysters, Arcachon Bay is known for its mild climate and exceptional natural beauty.

Great fun with a great guide, thanks Hugo.

This was a fun morning with Hugo travelling to a beautiful location and enjoying a tasty treat of prawns, as the option to oysters. Climbing the sand dune was great and it was a magnificent day to see the Atlantic and Arcachon Bay. We traveled with 3 others which made it very personal and everyone was able to have a chat.

Very friendly guide, the transfer from Bordeaux to Arcachon and back was well-organized. The Dune de Pyla is a memorable landmark: If you like the ocean, it’s well worth the visit. Service at the included oyster tasting was prompt, with both seafood and wine fulfilling high expectations.

We had a lovely time on this trip! The dunes are well worth a visit. The oyster tasting also brilliant! We had a very knowledgeable and friendly guide! (So sorry, forgot the lady’s name but she was so lovely!). A must go!

Beautiful day! A special experience that everyone should do... Everything is Perfect thanks to our guide Hugo :) I would do it thousand times. Greetings from Calabria

We had a great morning visiting Arcachon with Quentin. Informative, professionally organised & a charming guide. Would definitely recommend!
