What you can expect
A week long taster of these two adjoining regions, each with a distinct personality. Beaches, seafood, apples and cream. Forests, lush countryside and a relaxed way of life.

FULLY SUPPORTED AND SELF GUIDED OPTIONS
This nine day tour aims to give a flavour of the north west of France, with its proud heritage and history. Whilst geographically adjacent, the two regions have very distinct identities. Brittany occupies a peninsular jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean and due to this is a seafaring area. It has wonderful beaches and pretty harbours. The interior used to be one massive forest, of which remnants remain, and throughout Brittany history and legend combine to make it a fascinating destination. It is well geared up for the cycle tourist.
Normandy is a lush and verdant landscape where agriculture is at its heart, particularly apple orchards for the production of cider and calvados, and cattle, used for beef and for making some of the world’s most famous cheeses. Normandy has a large number of impressive chateaux and manor houses and some historic villages. It is a place to come and enjoy the countryside and soak in the atmosphere, not unlike the British west country.
This tour is a combination of the Brittany Explorer and Normandy Discovery holidays, which run consecutively and both start from St Malo so are simple to combine. First you will head west into Brittany and then east into Normandy over varied terrain. A total of nine days’ cycling, all with very achievable daily distances giving plenty of time to stop and admire the view.
If travelling from the UK we recommend arriving on the overnight ferry from Portsmouth to St Malo, which arrives to coincide with the start of this tour.
