Leave by bike, return by boat

The concept is simple and appealing: ” Leave by bike, return by boat “. Visitors start their day or afternoon with a guided bike ride through the enchanting surrounding countryside. In this way, they can discover the region’s picturesque charms while adopting an environmentally-friendly approach.

After this enriching first stage, cyclists exchange their bikes for a boat and embark on a captivating cruise through the salt marshes. This transition between land and sea offers a unique perspective on local biodiversity and allows visitors to fully appreciate the region’s natural wealth.

After a guided Boat Trip through the marshes, an immersive salt marsh experience awaits participants. The Salt Maker, a true passionate, will reveal the ancestral secrets of his craft and of the salt marsh, sharing fascinating anecdotes about the history and importance of this fragile and unique ecosystem.
