Walks and rides in the Marais Poitevin

Walking circuits

A large choice of itineraries invites you to visit the Marais Poitevin on foot or by bike. The Marais Poitevin, with the label of Great Site of France, invite you to wander from Niort, the urban capital of Green Venice and up stream, along the Sèvre Niortaise river, between the valley and the plane.

We invite you to wander along the hundreds of kilometers of walking and cycling tracks. The landscapes are flat and there are no particular difficulties.

The itineraries are signposted ; we recommend however that you get hold of a map in order to make the most of your stroll or ride. The tourist office has six different maps available. Each covers an area of the marshes, from Niort, the natural gateway of the marshes, to Aiguillon Bay. Distances, signposts, white pathways, tarmac roads and picnic areas are indicated so that you can turn your discovery of the marshes into a moment of relaxation.


You can find them at our offices : (consult our opening times)

  • 1 € each

The itineraries are also available on request on the application Niort Marais Poitevin Tour for iPhone and Android (in french - soon in english).
