Theme Holidays

Holidaymakers increasingly want to follow “themes” when they visit a region, adding to the charm and interest of their tour. A dynamic region, based on a real art of living, Nouvelle-Aquitaine offers a multitude of theme activities for a holiday where
you never get bored! 

The most obvious example of this is of course the theme of wine (and spirits) tourism, where visitors taste and eventually purchase the products. It also goes without saying that many people travel to Nouvelle-Aquitaine for its globally renowned cuisine. When it comes to history and culture, visitors can discover sites dating back to the first traces of human presence in Europe. For those loving the outdoor life, whether it’s cycling, hiking or surfing, there’s plenty to do, and the growing wellness sector is also particularly well catered for. The curious can also learn how the local master-craftspeople produce the articles for which the region is famous! Finally, active holidays lovers will have the choice of several theme parks and the incredible Terra Aventura treasure hunt available throughout all the region.
