Enjoying the great outdoors, on the river or on horseback.
Outdoor adventures near Bordeaux.
If you're a fan of soft adventure in the great outdoors, the town of Mont-de-Marsan, 140 kilometres (87 miles) from Bordeaux, has a number of great offerings for you. Get yourself into a kayak or canoe on the Midouze River with the Stade Montois sporting club operating out of the Parc Jean Rameau (the club also offers classes in a wide variety of sports and activities). Or get on horseback with the help of L' Etrier du Marsan riding club, based at a 13-hectare (32-acre) farm next to the river; the club offers guided routes and expert trainers who also give lessons to all comers age four and over.
