The beautiful department of Landes is located in the south-west of France, it is part of the region of New Aquitaine. It owes its name to its 18th and 19th centuries landscape. At the time, arid moors covered a large part of the territory. The virtually non-existent relief allowed the shepherds to move on stilts, to travel greater distances during the monitoring of herds. However, while the north of the department has this type of space, i.e. areas composed mainly of shrubs and therefore relatively low vegetation and little forested, the south holds more forests, thanks in particular to the richness of the soil. So, whether you prefer the expanses as far as the eye can see or the forests, there will be inevitably something for you. And for a comfortable and easy accommodation, Airotel offers its local campsites. In the spotlight today: the northern and southern coast of Landes. And for good reason: 106 km of Atlantic coastline connecting the Gironde to the Pyrénées Atlantiques, all lined with dunes or green meadows. Follow the guide, to learn more about the proposed activities in the South and North coasts.

It is its seaside resorts and coastline which have made it famous. With an ocean climate and unspoiled nature, the beach has kept its natural beauty, which seduces both tourists and surfers. It's clear as day: if you love surfing sports, the south coast is for you. With many surf spots, you can enjoy surfing, body-boarding, wave-skiing, kite-surfing. And to relax after the effort, many famous seaside resorts open their doors. The most famous, is the sublime resort of Hossegor. Steeped in culture and architecture, it is part of the jewels of the time, with a casino dating back to the 30s. It is also the center of surfing in France, the French federation having established its headquarters there, due in particular to its famous waves. Many bike paths and hiking trails will also help you stretch your legs. Finally, the hinterland of the south coast is very suitable for discovery outings: lakes, ponds, marshes, some classified natural reserve, and their migratory wildlife.
Just like the south coast, the northern coast of Landes has a beautiful sandy beach, some dunes and a green hinterland. You will be charmed by the feeling of infinity, surrounded by blue and green as far as the eye can see. Its wild beauty will allow you to discover a still preserved and spirited nature. In addition to the lakes and ponds (Aureilhan, Sanguinet, Biscarosse-Parentis, Leon), you can admire the beauty of the rivers or "currents", which run from the forest, through the dunes, to finally join the ocean. To do this, there is nothing better than to embark (by boat!) and take a cruise while admiring Landes over the water! You can also travel by bicycle, especially on the famous Vélodyssée, a European bike path! And for the lovers of Seaplanes, Biscarosse and its museum are there to satisfy your passion! So, for your next holidays, choose camping in Landes, on the North or South coast, to have your feet in the green and your head in the water!
