Activities <strong>with family</strong> - Dune of Pilat

Activities with family

Our 2024 activity program will be available soon. Follow our news!

How was the Dune du Pilat formed? How has it evolved to the present day? What traces of human occupation have we found there? What particularities have developed the plant and animal species present in this fragile ecosystem? What protection measures have been put in place to preserve this exceptional natural monument?

Our mediators answer these questions and accompany you to the summit of Europe's highest mobile sand mountain, while revealing some secrets about the natural and cultural heritage of this territory.

Our nature guides offer you environmental education tools on the crest of Dune to better understand the riches of this exceptional heritage.

By reading the landscape, they will return with you to the impacts related to the fire (fauna and flora) and will tell you the story of this intimate ocean of greenery linked to the formation of the highest Dune in Europe.
