[ Cycle routes La Vélodyssée, the Atlantic cycling route ]
  • 80 km

La Vélodyssée follows cycle tracks through the Porge forest to meet the salt marshes, villages and oyster farms typifying Arcachon Bay. The route traces the coastline until it reaches the regional natural Parc des Landes de Gascogne… and finally into Arcachon itself. Cap Ferret is a stone’s throw across the water from the famous area of Arachon, Ville d’Hiver.

    You’re never too far from the water as La Vélodyssée follows the coastline, constantly discovering new horizons in the direction of Bassin d’Arcachon Bay.

  • Lège-Cap-Ferret / Audenge

    Lège-Cap-Ferret / Audenge [15.3 km]

    Those nostalgic for the trains of yesteryear, welcome! Except for a shared section with traffic between Lège and Arès, La Vélodyssée now follows the former steam-train tracks. We pass stations and you’ll need to “go off the rails” to truly enjoy Arcachon Bay and surrounding villages.

  • Audenge / Arcachon

    Audenge / Arcachon [27.9 km]

    The forests of Gironde disappear, to be replaced by urban landscapes during this stage of La Vélodyssée around the Bassin d’Arcachon. A little way after Lanton, we find ourselves in the Regional National Park of the Landes de Gascogne, which is fragrant with the iodised and authentic air of Aquitaine.
