The Gironde Estuary by bike from Vitrezay to Blaye

[ Cycle routes Canal des deux mers à vélo ] [ The Gironde Estuary by bike ]
  • 39.5 km
  • intermediaire Level Intermediate

Reaching the port of Vitrezay, you leave the département (French county) of Charente-Maritime, continuing on the Canal des 2 Mers à Vélo cycle route into the département of Gironde. Bypassing the electricity-producing nuclear power station of the Blayais, a beautiful greenway leads to Blaye and its citadel designed by the great 17th-century engineer Vauban. The citadel and other forts along the Gironde remind you of warring times. A small ferry crosses the estuary from Blaye to Lamarque.
