On the water, on foot, by bike

Mont de Marsan and the Landes are full of activities of all kinds to do with your partner or family... The Landes are of course inseparable from cycling and Mont de Marsan is no exception to the rule. Between Mont de Marsan and Gabbaret, over more than 50 km, the greenway of Marsan and Armagnac is an ideal route for cyclists, walkers, hikers or even horse riders. In June 2018, the Eurovéloroute n°3, also known as the Scandibérique or "Pilgrims' Route" will pass through Mont de Marsan and its town centre. It will link Norway to Santiago de Compostela.
