The marsh is 112,000 hectares of canals and nature, where you’ll discover a labyrinth of greenery and water and a treasure trove of biodiversity.

It’s an ideal destination for gentle, environmentally-friendly activities.

Your stay begins with a boat trip through the marsh, followed by a fishing trip and a dive into the typical villages.

And if you’d like to admire our marsh from a little higher up, take a hot-air balloon ride for a memorable souvenir.
