The 230 hectares of former saltworks owned by the Conservatoire du Littoral are protected natural wetlands and are classified by Natura 2000 (European Network of Ecological Sites).
Salt Marsh Trail
By bike or by foot, this trail is a 15 km loop on flat ground around the Ingril Lake and opens onto wetlands, the old saltworks and the Aresquiers Woods. The wooden decking that crosses the lagoon ensures that the visitor is completely immersed in the fauna and flora of the salt marshes. A haven for migratory species, along the trail you will come across large colonies of flamingos, white-backed stilts, terns, ducks …….. Or you can simply enjoy a truly peaceful atmosphere with breathtaking views !!
