  • Itinerary
  • This 5-day loop tour of Brittany by bike is a bunch of both heritage and nature of the region.

    Your trip begins in Saint-Malo where you get to know the coast before riding for an adventure in the inland through small countryside roads. You will be welcomed with open arms in the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel.

    After visiting this world-class monument, you ride in the open air through magnficient and undisclosed landscapes: woods, ponds, canal, sea,etc. It is a recipe for an amazing break with lots of local dishes such as galettes, shortbread biscuits or seafood.

    Day 1


    Saint-Malo - Dol-de-Bretagne

    Today’s ride takes you along the wild, sandy beaches of the Mont-Saint-Michel. Ride at your own pace as you gaze at the magnificent abbey. You could enjoy some water activities in Hirel or bike directly through the countryside to Dol-de-Bretagne. This medieval town is dominated by the 13th century massive cathedral. Climb the Tour-Notre-Dame for outstanding views of the area.

    Day 2


    Dol-de-Bretagne - Mont-Saint-Michel (Pontorson)

    Let’s get ready, your daily step takes you to the world-famous Mont-Saint-Michel Abbey! The gravity defying medieval monastery will astound you as you explore this massive building.

    Day 3


    Mont-Saint-Michel (Pontorson) - Hédé

    After this stop in Normandy (whatever you do, do not tell to a native Mont-Saint-Michel is located in Brittany), you follow the cycle path to Antrain and its castle.

    You ride then through an amazing countryside and discover small historical cities such as Bazouges-la-Pérouse and enjoy a preserved nature: woods, ponds, etc. All your senses are awake by now!

    Meet the canal of Ille-et-Rance for the last kilometers and stop in Hédé with its eleven locks.

    Day 4


    Hédé - Dinan

    Cycle path along towpath
    Continue along the canal and towpath. Take time to explore the medieval town of Lehon with its splendid Royal Abbey.

    In Dinan, don’t miss taking a look at the 43 meter high "Tour de l’Horloge" which consists of both a dungeon and a bell tower.

    Day 5


    Dinan - Saint-Malo

    This morning your route leaves the towpath as you ride further into the scenic countryside through forests and well-tented gardens. The trail is quite flat since the path was a former railroad line. As you arrive in the city of Dinard, have a look at the beautiful mansions overlooking the ocean.

    From Dinard, take the ferry to Saint-Malo, the old city of privateers! Ferry crossing between Dinard and Saint-Malo is included.
