Brittany’s North – Wonderful Walking

Rollercoaster walking on Walk 10, Plougasnou

How do you like the sound of walking through bucolic countryside, or discovering an orchid-lined pilgrim’s way?

What about exploring a fairy-tale trail winding through ancient woodland, or strolling alongside an idyllic trout stream?

You could be scrambling across a cataract of rocks or following the airy contours of the spectacular coastal path, weaving between delicately sculpted dunes or wandering across the flat sands of the tideland.

 

Port de Ploumanach on Walk 19, Ploumanac’h

Gaze at the wide blue horizon from a wind battered headland or simply lounge about on a breathtakingly beautiful beach.

Brittany, (north-western France) is a perfect ‘get away from it all’ experience.

Rolling pastures on Walk 32, Langast

Boasting more than 3,000 kilometres of waymarked paths, a tourist infrastructure that is highly developed without being obtrusive, and regular budget flights, the region has all you need for a long-weekend away or a full walking holiday.
