A multifaceted territory, Royan Atlantique notably conceals a rich natural and cultural heritage. Full of contrasts, it has remarkable assets: picturesque ports, towns and villages of character, unspoilt nature between sea and countryside, tasty products... Every step is an opportunity to (re)discover a unique place and history thanks to our guided and commented tours.

Explore the territory with the Passeurs d’histoire

From April to October, the History runners take you to discover Royan Atlantique. Fine connoisseurs of the territory, they are keen to share history, culture and the art of living by the sea. So, each season, more than 30 guided tours and walks are offered on more than 400 dates. Of Tremblade in Mortagne-sur-Gironde via the remarkable architecture of Royan but also the coastal path of Saint-Palais-sur-Mer, the territory will no longer have any secrets for you.

On foot, by bike or in costume, the Passeurs d'histoire will take you to unmissable places as well as off the beaten track. The themes are varied and suitable for the whole family: "nature", fun or gourmet visits complete the cultural visits to towns and villages classified as Mornac-sur-Seudre ou Talmont-sur-Gironde. In particular, we take the time to observe the fauna and flora that surround us, to meet local producers and to penetrate all the authenticity of the territory.

Who are the Storytellers?

The Storytellers are tour guides or travel advisors who know everything about the territory. Through these visits and walks, they transmit their passion, draw the eye to details that we would probably not have noticed... As a bonus, they deliver historical anecdotes and reveal secret, less touristy corners, to be carefully guarded in memory. More than just visits, these are real experiences to be had punctuated by wonderful encounters.

Discover the territory differently with the Greeters

What is a Greeter?

Greeters are inhabitants of the territory who wish to share their attachment to their place of life and their passions. They offer free personalized walks through which exchange and conviviality are the key words. Their credo? Reveal their good addresses, their favorite places and immerse yourself in local life. Following in the footsteps of a Greeter is an unusual and unique moment. We rediscover well-known places from another angle, sometimes unexpected. A walk often gives rise to an enriching human encounter.
