When to go to the Landes? Summer is the most popular and best time of year to enjoy the beaches, ocean, lakes and ponds, but every season has its own activities. In summer, it will be swimming, surfing and golf. Thermalism is practiced rather between March and November, January being the coldest month with risks of snow. Fishing and site visits take place all year round even if the high season is the most favourable. As on the entire Atlantic coast the low season is the cheapest in terms of accommodation, but inland prices do not vary much. The Landes are festive and the most important event remains the Dax fair in mid-August: white dress with belt and red scarf, novillada, bullfighting and the rejon race (form of bullfighting on horseback) in the arenas, bullfighting in the streets and continuous bodegas. Début July in Mont-de-Marsan, trip to Spain with Arte Flamenco. The Sanguinet Jazz Festival attracts a large number of fans on the third weekend of July with its very eclectic programme. In Saint-Sever, the last weekend of November or the first of December, the Festivolailles takes place, an event which, as its name suggests, is dedicated to the celebration of Landes poultry.
