The arrival in Léon will be quiet (be careful, the track runs along the road at the entrance to the village); a market is held every day in the village square from June to September; the Léon lake and its restaurants, its banks with picnic areas, will allow you to have a lunch stop with a view of the lake. You cannot leave the Etang de Léon without visiting the nature reserve or taking a boat trip on the Courant d'Huchet, one of the natural curiosities of the Landes coastline.
