What to do with child ...

Taking care of children during the holidays can quickly become a puzzle ... But in the Gers, we found so many family activities that it is the selection that is difficult!

Sport to burn off, leisure areas to have fun, museums and monuments to learn about, animal parks and natural spaces to live great experiences ... We don't even know where to start! Without being exhaustive, here are the first ideas that come to mind to have fun in the Gers , for young and old alike !

We start our journey in Nogaro , in Armagnac, between vineyards and valleys . A large area of 5 hectares can accommodate 36 species of raptors in the best conditions. On the program: "from the egg to the flight", "the ballet of the owls", "Once upon a time there was falconry ...", "the raptor world tour", shows and original activities , up close birds that make this park unique .

Trotting in a vineyard


A visit to a vineyard is common. But in an electric scooter , it is much less! Here is the good idea of La Maison de Ninan : You cross the slopes of the Val d'Adour . A moment of sport accessible to all. Do you have little ones? No problem, carts for children have even been planned.

We still have plenty of other ideas in shambles ...


  • Also exotic: a palm grove in the Gers , in Sarthou ...
  • A family vacation also means knowing how to take your time . Slow tourism , do you know?
  • The tourist office offers many other sites for you to visit as a family. He even created a section just for you: it's here ...

We hope that you have given you some good ideas to fully enjoy your stay in the Gers. The order chosen is not linked to the interest of each site but it is a great discovery loop of the different territories of the Gers .

The Gers also vibrates to the rhythm of its languages : Occitan, langue d'oc, Gascon .
