Walking Holidays in Brittany
As the largest peninsula in France, Brittany reaches out across the Atlantic Ocean as though in search of adventure, and has subsequently experienced its fair share of activity over the centuries. With the English Channel to its north, and the Bay of Biscay to the south, this is a region that inspires exploration, with coastal hikes unveiling rugged cliff faces and rocky capes, and inland treks taking visitors into areas of dense forest and across farmland.
Much of the peninsula's appeal undoubtedly lies in its stunning coastline, which is studded with rocky coves, secluded beaches and inlets. A walking holiday on Brittany's coast reveals a series of fishing ports and historic towns, including the ancient pirate port of St Malo, with uninterrupted views of the wide horizon looking out to sea.
Uncover hidden gems
Inland, walkers can discover the region’s Celtic heritage, its forests steeped in legend and its orchards, the produce of which makes the renowned Breton cider. On both short and long-distance trails, walking tours of Brittany uncover endless charm and tradition.
