Unusual things to do

Fancy doing something different or trying a new and fascinating pastime? The unusual activities on offer in Languedoc will surprise you.

Zoom up and down the Haut Languedoc hillsides on an off-road scooter, meander along on Sète’s canals, or visit Montpellier by sea kayak. Activities such as these are something different, and are designed to be fun for people of all ages.

Off-road scooters

In an area of outstanding natural beauty, have fun heading off downhill on the tracks in the foothills of the Haut Languedoc Regional Natural Park.

There are 10 trails, ranked according to four levels of difficulty, so that everyone can enjoy the descent and have the chance to discover this area of natural heritage.

Length of route: 6 km there and back, travelling time one hour. Our pedal railcars can carry up to four adults or two adults and three children, with no age restriction.

By sea kayak: explore the cliffs and caves below the Corniche, or paddle along the many canals in Sète, dubbed the ‘Singular Island’; you’ll find it a new and surprising way of discovering this unique town.

On the canals, by rowing dinghy: a trip in one of Sète’s traditional-style boats shows you the town from another angle. The skipper will be your guide, to help you understand and appreciate the treasures of Sète’s heritage.

Stand-up Paddle boarding

This is a trending sport! It’s like surfing standing up on a board that’s longer and wider than normal, using a paddle to move yourself along.

Stand-up paddle boarding is accessible to all, and it won’t be long before you’re enjoying it.
