The 3 stages of the section « Léon > Bayonne »

  • Léon / Vieux-Boucau-les-Bains

    Léon / Vieux-Boucau-les-Bains [13.6 km]

    La Vélodyssée now heading north, advances to a few hundred yards from the Côte d’Argent, gradually getting closer to Moliets-et-Mâa and Messanges. The route finally meets the powerful ocean at Vieux-Boucau, the former port (until the river Adour was re-routed to Bayonne in 1578) and today a very pleasant stopping point.

  • Vieux-Boucau-les-Bains / Capbreton

    Vieux-Boucau-les-Bains / Capbreton [19.7 km]

    Here La Vélodyssée sails past the iconic seaside, surfing and health resorts of Hossegor and Capbreton. These two towns are separated by the Boudigau - the redirected former Adour River – but their names are linked by their proximity and their huge popularity with tourists in the central areas of the Landes.

  • Capbreton / Bayonne

    Capbreton / Bayonne [29 km]

    This stage between the Landes and the Basque Country lets us enjoy forest and large beaches as we make our way along beautiful cycle lanes. As we approach Boucau, La Vélodyssée enters more urbanised surroundings. After all, sometimes we must share the highways!
