Brittany by bike

On this tour, you'll cycle through Brittany along the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, one of France's most emblematic landscapes. Leaving from the Breton capital of Rennes, you pedal through vast stretches of sand, salt meadows home to many migratory birds, not forgetting the many picturesque coastal villages and medieval towns such as Saint-Malo.

After this short stop, embark on a short cruise to cross the mouth of the Rance: you'll reach Saint-Malo by sea, a famous corsair town for its sailors.
