Arcachon Ecotours

Arcachon Ecotours is an incoming agency specialised in incentive operations, organisation of events and outdoor activities in the beautiful area of Arcachon Bay.

We offer eco-friendly trips to professional groups in order to make you discover this unique and fragile environnement.
Customised & turnkey stays, these trips will allow you to get familiar with Arcachon Bay in a different way, outside the box, surrounded by passionated professionals &/or guides (historical, naturalist & country-tellers) in order to get a proper in-depth understanding of our region.

Thus, we offer a large range of activities :
- outdoor: boat trip around the bay, Surf, Paragliding or Stand-Up Paddle initiation, Canoë on the "Leyre" river...
- patrimonial: climbing the great sand Dune of Pilat, visiting the Winter Town of Arcachon, visiting the Caviar factory and tasting...
- naturalist: discovery of the lake of Cazaux, Bird Reserve of Le Teich, environnemental actions...
- traditional: stroll with a Bac a Voile (sailing boat) or Pinasse (typical boat), Oyster farm & Oyster tasting, gallery forest with a Galupe (paddling boat)...

These stays being turnkey, we can deal with your transports, transfers, catering & accommodation according to your specifications and your budget.

Our eco-responsible commitment is translated into our will to provide for the Bay out of the summer season, to promote local know-how through entrepreneurs & craft business, and to heighten awareness about our bad habits in order to become aware of the daily actions that needs to be set up. For example, our outdoor lunches use organic short circuits products or from local stores, using recycled items for decoration & props, as well as producing the fewer garbage and to reduce our global environnemental imprint.

Contact us in order to assess your desires so we can prepare your professional trip beyond your expectations.

Sustainable approach

Arcachon Ecotours is EnVol certified for its environmental management, has a CSR charter and is in the process of obtaining the LUCIE Progress label for its strong CSR commitments.

The Arcachon Ecotours team can attest to the company's commitment: "At Arcachon Ecotours, our commitment to eco-responsibility is demonstrated first and foremost by our choice of "soft" activities rather than any other motorized, polluting activity. It's also evident in the way we prepare our picnics, in a spirit of locavore and zero waste. All this is backed up by regular awareness-raising campaigns before, during and after our trips, and via our communications media (blog posts & social networks).
It's unthinkable for us not to be part of this global approach, given the general climate emergency, and the beauty and large number of remarkable natural sites on the Bay of Arcachon. In this way, we can propose an alternative, eco-responsible form of tourism to preserve our Basin, educate, share and transmit, so that it retains its soul, its values and traditions, and does not become a seaside resort of unconscious over-tourism.
