Cycling Holidays in Brittany
With its first class coastal trails and idyllic pastoral scenery, Brittany is a picturesque destination for a leisurely cycling holiday. Routes traverse the rugged coastline and pass through thick forest, negotiating level tracks and challenging ascents, and unveiling a series of natural attractions that create enduring memories.
Explore the Emerald Coast
Between Cap Frehel and Mont-St-Michel lies the stunning Emerald Coast. Comprising the Ille-et-Vilaine and Cotes d’Armor, this is a stretch of coastline that lends itself to discovery on two wheels. See beaches of golden sand and rocky cliff faces, and gaze out across the emerald waters from which the moniker originates. Travelling from Dinard to St Malo, a gentle cycling holiday on Brittany's famous coast is certain to enchant.
Off the beaten track
For something less structured and a little more exciting, heading inland through lush countryside provides the chance to uncover quaint towns and villages that offer a distinct charm and a warm welcome. Off-road cyclists can travel further from more tourist-dominated routes, to discover such attractions as the medieval chapels and museums of Blavet. It's also an opportunity to enter dense forests, where Celtic and Arthurian legends are set.
