The Marais poitevin, a top tourist destination

The Marais poitevin proposes all sorts of ways for holidaymakers to explore, not just boat trips, but also by canoe or paddleboard, on foot, by bike or even in a horse-drawn carriage or a hot-air balloon. There are also museums to visit as well as the Park information centres, reserves, châteaux and castles. In other words, there’s something for everyone! But how can we let you know about this wide range of attractions? By calling upon the influencers, but not just anyone!!!

They spent 3 days here to explore the region, discover its tourist attractions and rise to a challenge: “Defy your senses in the Marais poitevin”.

They went exploring the Marais poitevin by bike, by boat, on horseback and even in a hot-air balloon… the means of locomotion didn’t matter, as long as they kept moving, stage by stage. Their grand finale was a shared experience that also involved solving clues: an escape game, naturally!
