Exploring the salt marshes is all about getting closer to nature and meeting people. It gives everyone an opportunity to get an overview of a living and working environment.
Open every day of the year, Terre de Sel is there to raise awareness of the need to protect nature, using a sensory, scientific and human approach.
All our exploratory tours end with a visit to our exhibition centre (the entry price is included in the price of all our tours). Situated in a building in the shape of the traditional salt barn (“salorge”), the 1000-m² centre contains a wealth of text, photos and traditional tools explaining the work done by the salt worker and the ecological riches found in the salt marshes through the seasons.
Upstairs there’s a mezzanine with a panoramic view.
All our salt marsh tours are on foot and are led by salt marsh specialists: salt workers and naturalist guides.
