Lovely outings

You don’t need a grape hod to hike around a vineyard’s plots, just pull on your backpack and follow the path.

With 4200km of footpaths and 700km of bike paths, it’s safe to say that Gironde is heaven for nature lovers and cycling fans. Walks, horse and bike rides on bypaths and signposted paths alike exude the surrounding lands and grapes. Paths from coombs, plains and valleys lead to leafy forests, maritime lagoons and the sand belt.

Water from the river and estuary elevate the green and ochre landscape so you can hop between banks as you feast your eyes on the scenery. Water and vineyards are everywhere and provide you with a whole host of amazing outings.

Pulpe's tip

Imagine following up a trip to Saint-Émilion with a bike ride to a Natura 2000 area and UNESCO biosphere where you can explore flora and fauna as you ride on water. Don’t believe us? It’s true: let us introduce you to the water bikes at Moulin de Porchères. A one-of-a-kind way to visit the locks and canals from the water.
