Hiking & Trekking

Discover all our hiking & trekking trails to enjoy on foot, on a bike or on horseback!

 

The GR®34 trail

The must-do for walkers

The "sentier des douaniers" (customs-officers path) was ranked as France's most popular Long Hiking Trail in 2017. From Mont Saint-Michel to La Roche Bernard, its 2,000 km represent a wonderful challenge for all those who love walking. Here, the landscape perpetually changes: from steep cliffs to long stretches of fine sandy beaches, to quaint ports nestling in their ria... along with the sea as your forever travelling companion.

Our region invites you to trek along 40 km of the GR®34, from Morieux Cove to the Sables d'Or Lagoon, passing by Pléneuf-Val-André and Erquy. Don't forget to your camera to take photos: wooden bouchot-mussel stakes, isles and ancient chapels spring up around a bend and are sure to amaze you! 

Bikeways and mountain-bike trails

Cyclists aren't left out in our region either. Mountain-bikes have their own dedicated trails and two greenways criss-cross the region. Choose between cycling along the coast between Morieux Bay and Cap Fréhel headland on the N°4 bikeway or explore the more inland Lamballe region by taking the N°8 which leads to Moncontour.

The first invites to admire delightful vistas over the sea if you start out from Pléneuf-Val-André or Erquy, and from time to time small country lanes give way to sandy trails, former railway lines and century-old viaducts. The second offers the opportunity to discover a fine example of a megalithic passage tomb, castles dotted here, there and everywhere before reaching the ramparts of Moncontour. Feel free to come along to our tourist information offices to pick up maps of these bikeways.

And on horseback... 

If you'd like to head off for a trek on horseback, Equibreizh is the must-of-musts trail. Across our region, you'll ride along the coast via Pléneuf-Val-André and Erquy before heading inland to Moncontour. You'll have the chance to admire the various scenescapes which make up our region and take in a myriad of Brittany's key sites. And, if ever you lose your way, just look for the "horseshoe" markers on their orange background.
