This is one of France's smallest nature reserves but with great biodiversity! Peat digging (for fuel) in the 18th and 19th centuries created the landscape which we see today: little lakes in the place of meadows. There's a footpath, so it's easy to walk round.
The Hâble d’Ault is a unique coastal site, to the south of the Baie de Somme (its big sister), just where the cliffs begin to rise. This old lagoon is protected from the open sea by a narrow and fragile bank of pebbles. It's a first class bird sanctuary and a great place for walks.
Unmissable!. 260 hectares of dunes, forests and marshland at heart of an outstanding Nature Reserve, ideal for observing the secret life of migrating birds from special hides. Waymarked trails (1 hour to 3 hours) along which you'll be enraptured by this magical place and the enthusiasm of its guides
Outstanding natural site along the Somme valley (going towards the Baie). A maze of peat marshes and pools (one of the largest in the valley), linked by little footbridges which give the impression that you're walking ion water. Good 3km walk - easy - picnic tables.
These lovely lakes are in fact man-made, dug out by monks from Corbie Abbey, originally to serve as holding pools for fish then for peat diggings in the 19th century. Today the site is a place where everyone can learn more about Nature. Boat trips (2 hours) with the CPIE.
