Welcome to the heart of the Guérande salt marshes. This is where we will take you to discover how the famous Guérande salt is formed and harvested with professionals.
We offer15 different tours depending on what you would like to see: family strolls for all ages, guided themed walks, hikes into the heart of the marsh, and more. The schedule is updated on the website: www.terredesel.com
Your guide is always a specialist, a “paludier” or salt worker, a man of the marsh, will tell you about his profession with fervour. Another salt worker, this time a woman, a “paludière”, proud of her fleur de sel, will share its recipes. A naturalist guide will share his extensive knowledge of edible plants and the birds which come in their thousands to the Guérande peninsula.
Our shop, the showcase of the cooperative offers the greatest choice and best quality of course salt and fleur de sel. All the Le Guérandais products are available for direct sale right where they are made.
Terre de Sel is open every day of the year. Terre de Sel, the must-see site in Guérande!
