Walk around the ornithological reserve of Le Teich

A beautiful walk from the ornithological reserve of Le Teich to the Arcachon basin

The walk starts from the car park of the bird sanctuary of Le Teich and then goes along the sanctuary. Why not visit the bird sanctuary directly? Because we are not passionate about birds and the entrance fee of 9.60 euros seems a bit high. So we take a path that goes along the reserve. The problem : there is no real way back, we have to go back on our steps. So we decide to head towards the Arcachon basin and then come back. You need one hour of walking without hurrying to reach the basin of Arcachon. The walk is easy, everything is flat, be careful for cyclists, the path is narrow.
