Tour Details

We are proud to present our Brittany walking tours and in particular this holiday starting in Perros Guirec. We have graded this easy walking holiday in Brittany as a level 1 self-guided walking tour making it suitable for guests looking for that easy relaxing vacation. Brittany walking tours are made special by this rugged coastline, which stretches from the Pointe de l’Arcouest to Trébeurden, is constituted almost entirely of the pink granite that inspired its name; large rock formations highlight the coastline. Time and harsh weather have taken their toll, eroding these rocks into unique formations, some resembling animals or everyday objects. Others seem to balance on a hair and might topple at the slightest brush of breath.

Whilst walking in Brittany along this wild and picturesque coastline, you will pass many beaches and ports that delight the holidaymaker. Several islands lie close to the coast and are accessible at low tide. They have become sanctuaries for thousands of birds.

We also have many other walking holidays in France if you wish to take a look at these.

Itinerary

Day 1Arrival at PERROS GUIREC.

This seaside resort offers visitors the unique natural beauty of strange and grandiose landscapes. With pink granite rock structures given shape by millions of years of being battered by wind and waves.  Opposite the bird sanctuary of the Archipel des Sept-Iles, there are three vast fine sandy beaches which await the beachgoers.

Day 2PERROS GUIREC – PLOUMANAC’H 7.5 miles 12 km

You will begin at the yachting port and make your way to the coastline.  You will pass by a residential area of villas built at the start of the 20th century.  Following the coast to the Pointe du Château, you will then continue along the lovely Trestrignel beach and the large beach of Trestaou. You will then take the path of Douaniers which runs along the coast, weaving about the pink granite forms until you reach the Ploumanac’h lighthouse and the beach and oratory of Saint Guirec. You are only a short distance now from the port of Ploumanac’h and your hotel.

Day 3PLOUMANAC’H – TREGASTEL 8.2 miles 13 km (Upgrade tour taxi to Landrellec and walk back to Ploumanac’h)

Today’s hike begins with a tour of the tide mills built at the mouth of the Traouiero valley.  Their history dates back to the 14th century, but the building that exists today was built in 1735.  Following the coastal path, you will continue along with the Baie de Sainte Anne to the Ile Renote where you will discover chaos of imposing pink granite formations and a covered path.  You will pick up your hike again, crossing the Coz Porz beach, La Grève Blanche, and the Baie de Kerlavos. Leaving the shore at bottom of this bay to discover the covered alley of Kerguntuil (a burial ground 9 meters in length dating to 2000 BC) and the Kerguntuil’s dolmen; one of the most imposing of Trégor. Then you will return to the centre of Trégastel by the same path or by the fields.

Day 4TREGASTEL – TREBEURDEN 8.7- 11.9 miles, 14 – 19 km (Upgrade tour taxi to Saint Samson and walk to Prebeurden)

Transfer by taxi from Trégastel to Landrellec hamlet in the morning. You will continue your walking tour across the Breton countryside towards Saint Uzec’s menhir. Before continuing on to Penvern’s chapel of Notre-Dame-des-Citeaux.  Established by the Cisternian monks of Bégard around 1300, it is possibly one of the oldest chapels in the region.  The fountain which lies beside the chapel was known to heal maladies.  The most courageous adventurers among you will continue the hike along the coast so to visit the Ile Grande (+ 5 km) where you will uncover a landscape of heaths along the seashore, inlets, marshes, and a lovely covered alley.  Next, you will arrive at the small village of Trébeurden by way of the ponds of Quellern, where a small family of Camargue horses claim residence.

Day 5TREBEURDEN – LANNION 10 miles 16 km (upgrade tour taxi back to Trebeurden after the walk)

From here you climb up the Castel overlooking the port, greet “PéreTrébeurden”, a rock looking like a face! and, if the tide allows, discover the Ile Millau with its sandy moors, magnificent views, and covered alley. Once again on the firm ground, you will follow the large beach of Tresmeur to the Pointe de Bihit. You will make your way across the Baie de Lannion by means of the coastal path, the beaches or the moors, and arrive at the Pointe Servel at the mouth of the Léguer river. Then, you will hike to Lannion along the valley and towpaths which lead into the city. Your journey is at its end.  Take time to discover the richness of the city’s architectural and patrimonial history.
