The mascaret wave

Surfeurs sur le mascaret

Discover a landscape with changing colours : admire the sparkling Garonne river at sunset or find her, still asleep, during the summer morning mist.

Walking alongside the Garonne River is also watching the fauna and flora of thoses wet zones, discovering the traditions of the local fishing : the carrelet fishing for exemple. The Mascaret wave is also an impressive phenomenon and typical of the Garonne. At certain times of the year, the tides of the ocean may be felt hundreds of kilometers within the country. It creates crosswise waves that some people, nowadays, use to surf.
