Something different

You don’t need to go far to experience the exotic or the unexpected.

You know what we mean: that taste of adventure with a dash of the unknown, new sensations that will make your heart race. It’s all about doing something different and quirky, like a tuk-tuk ride in the underground quarries or a mindful tasting session after a serious yoga class with all-encompassing views of the vineyard (obviously).

If you want to get away from it all: a hot-air balloon ride or flight over the vineyard in a little tourist aircraft will do you the world of good and show you another side to the area.

If you want to surprise yourself: speed through the vines and end your thrilling race by the sea. That’s part of our DNA: giving you a South-Western welcome and doing the unexpected! Basically, we’re inviting you to a sprawling playground in the great outdoors.

Whilst we’re talking all things quirky, we’ve got another idea for you: surfing the ultimate wave that we call the Mascaret. Yes, dear readers, you can and it’s so much fun surfing on the Garonne with lots of fans flocking back every year. A unique wave for a unique experience: it’s our top tip! Check the calendars on the Destination Garonne and Tourisme Libournais tourist board websites.

Before we go, we solemnly swear to bring you a thousand things to do that are as crazy as we are! Ready to let off steam?
