Hikes, trails and walks, on foot and by bike

Do you crave extraordinary adventures within boat’s reach? Of breathtaking landscapes? Of sensations in the heart of a preserved nature? We have what you need in Belle-Ile-en-Mer in Southern Brittany!

Located 15 km off the coast of Quiberon Bay, Belle-Ile-en-Mer, is a land of hiking between sky, sea and high cliffs, very popular with walkers.

You too can set foot on the largest and also most hilly island in Brittany with friends or solo. The island is ideally made to be explored on foot whether it is for an hour or to make the tour in 5 days, walking or running for the more athletic.

Hiking on the GR® 340 – Tour de Belle-Île-en-Mer, elected GR® favorite of the French 2022, is a real pleasure…to you the great expanses with the ocean as the only horizon!

You will be able to enjoy grandiose landscapes on an itinerary of 85km with 2800m of elevation gain. This tour of Belle-île is accessible to all walkers and trailers who are prepared and in shape.

You’ll get an eyeful, lungful, earful…and calfful! Breathtaking effect guaranteed, a middle mountain relief in the middle of the ocean awaits you!

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that since June 20, 2022, walking sticks with tips are prohibited on the entire coastal trail, in Belle-île. The use of walking sticks without tip or with tips remains authorized.

These measures are taken due to the risk of trail erosion and vegetation degradation induced by the use of walking sticks and in order to maintain the quality and sustainability of the trail!

Ready? Then buckle up your backpack and come enjoy the sea air that is available to you!
