The Bike Excursion

Go on an adventure on an ultra-comfortable bike (choice of electric or classic) in total autonomy: You will be provided with a map with the route of approximately 10 km to take. This circuit is easy even when you don’t have a great sense of direction. On this card, flash the QR codes to listen to audios offering you to know more about the fauna, the flora but also about the profession of Camargue horse breeders. You will come across horses, foals born the same year as well as a large number of water birds.

Playful and educational moment in the middle of nature! The little extra, you go through the village of Brouage on the way back, ideal for…eating a crepe for a snack or bringing back some souvenirs in the basket of your bike!

The Carriage Ride

To the rhythm of horses and the sound of hooves, discover the marshland comfortably in a horse-drawn carriage led by Mathieu. The walks take place one day a week (probably on Wednesdays) from La Manade on the way to Brouage. Stop at Brouage for a ‘heritage and culinary’ visit (to be booked at the tourist office) with oyster tasting then return by horse-drawn carriage to the site.
