HIKING AND MOUNTAIN BIKING

We suggest one particular hiking trail that will allow you to explore the natural beauty of the area, experience the serenity of the estuary, and appreciate its architectural heritage. The Cliff Walk – 10 km (2 hrs 30 min) [Guides to walks and hikes in and around Royan are available from the Tourist Office at €7 as are guides to mountain-biking in the area at €6.]

You will find that routes are often signposted at certain points with waymarks. These are normally small signs on posts or trees incorporating dedicated symbols for ramblers and mountain bikers – a YELLOW TRIANGLE (normally pointing the way) and two YELLOW CIRCLES (Fédération Française de Cyclisme). These waymarks are normally headed: Communauté d’Agglomeration du PAYS ROYANNAIS.

Four additional guides to walking/biking circuits are also available from the Tourist Office –

 

The Path to the Estuary: This is a scenically interesting cycle ride or walk of about 1.8 km. Walk along the port to the dry dock and then just follow the arrows.

 

The Path of the Birds: Amidst tranquil scenerycycle the paths that crisscross the marshes to see the many species of birds that live there.

 

You can download the guidebooks to help you identify the various species of birds at: www.estuaire-gironde.fr. This project was developed by the Joint Association for Sustainable Development of the Gironde Estuary (SMIDDEST – Syndicat Mixte pour le Développement Durable de l’Estuaire de la Gironde). This is part of a development involving an innovative partnership with the departmental hunting federations of the Gironde and the Charente-Maritime, the Aquitaine League for the Protection Birds, and the Natural Park of the Landes of Gascony.

AROUND THE HISTORIC PORT

A leisurely walk around the yacht basin and the area surrounding it is to be recommended. Its location beneath the cliffs at the end of the navigable channel leading out to the estuary is steeped in history – as evidenced by the buildings surrounding it, including the former flour mill (see Postcard Museum for photographs of the port in the 20th Century and earlier).
