You Know Bordeaux’s Wine, but It’s Also an Epic Outdoor Destination
Bordeaux is known as the Port of the Moon, thanks to its position in the curved nook of the Garonne River in southwest France. For centuries, the region’s growth has been shaped by the reputation of its wines, which have been shipped out from Bordeaux’s flourishing port since Roman times. But this UNESCO-listed city has more to offer than just quaffing — from gentle river cruises to tough climbs up Europe’s biggest sand dune. So put down your wine glass and strap on your boots. It’s time to explore Bordeaux’s stunning landscape from the water, sky, bike saddle, and sand.
