Trip Planner Europe  /  France  /  Nouvelle-Aquitaine  /  Landes  /  Hossegor
Soorts-Hossegor is a commune in the Landes department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwestern France, 20 km north of Biarritz.It is well known as a seaside resort and surfing center, considered as one of the best surfing locales in the world. The city's economy is centered on surfing.HistoryUntil 1310, the mouth of the Adour was in the district of Capbreton-Hossegor. When the Vikings attacked the area in 840, they settled immediately in the deserted swamps around the mouth. At that time, the chief of the invaders was Asgeir.Asgeir did not stay in Gascony where Björn, his half-brother, settled, but tried with Pepin II of Aquitaine to conquer Aquitaine between the Garonne and the Loire.Hossegor remained a whale-hunting area until the 14th century. Hossegor is a part of the little town of Soorts.SurfingHossegor has long been one of the premier surfing locations in Europe, with a series of world-class beach breaks such as Gravière and La Nord, and with nearby beach breaks in Capbreton and Seignosse such as La Piste and Bourdaines. It supports a thriving nightlife through the summer, centered at La Plage Centrale. It holds the Quiksilver Pro France contest every year in October.
