Our Atlantic Coast Tour makes for a great ride through the heart of Brittany, across to France’s beautiful and wilder west coast and then, hugs the coastline down through the Vendée and on to the historic seaport of La Rochelle . It is also the first leg of a potential three leg cycle tour which guides you down the length and breadth of France. Brittany is wrapped by a dramatic indented coastline with cliffs and beautiful beaches; in its centre is a complex of low rolling hills where the land has given us some of its great cultural icons, crepes, galettes and of course cider. Venture a little further south and you will be entering a landscape of dramatic seas and salt marshes, with some of France’s coastal gems. This is where the north begins to merge with the south of France; watch the temperatures rise and let the place of life slow just a little.
Isn’t it time you discovered the Wilder West.
As one of our ‘Length and Breadth’ Fully Guided Tours, this offers a closer to nature experience as you can choose for nearly all of the nights to be spent on campsites, with campsite meals provided on three of the evenings (or you can choose the Hotel/B&B version of the tour). We provide the tents and, will pitch them for you; your own sleeping bag and camping mat are the only real extras you will need to bring in comparison to our other tours. Your luggage will be transferred for you between campsites so, the cycling remains a relaxing pleasure but the feeling of a greater escape is real and the rewards are plentiful.
