Getting to Port d'Albret

By Air: The closest airport is Biarritz. From Biarritz a bus network usually operates that can connect you to the centre. This involves taking 3 busses which will run via Bayonne, Soustons Darrigade and finally to Soustons Pinsolle. You then have a short walk along a cycle track to the Pinsolle golf course which is opposite the UCPA centre. Some Taxis may also be available, the Biarritz Airport website offers some useful information that can help you plan your journey.  

Port d'Albret is also accessible via Bordeaux which has more regular flight options from the UK although connecting transport is less available.

By Train: The nearest train station to Port d'Albret is Dax, you can also get here from either Biarrtiz or Bourdeux Airport. From Dax you can usually take two connecting busses to reach the UCPA centre.

We reccomend you contact the centre directly if you require more information on afraile@ucpa.asso.fr.
