Steep Coast of Brittany

Explore the Côtes d’Armor

Home to countless seabirds and wildflowers that transform fields into a colourful sea – that is the north of Brittany. Also known as the Côtes d’Armor, the coastline stretches for around 350 kilometres. The cliffs are rugged and spectacular to look at – a true hiking mecca and home to this nine-day Eurohike trip. Above all, the relationship between land and sea is evident in Brittany. In the rhythm of the tides, the rushing sea flows inland every day and rushes out again. Be a witness to the different coastal formations when hiking in France from east to west.

Details about hiking along the Steep Coast of Brittany

Would you like to experience the beauty of Northern Brittany and its rugged cliffs with your own eyes? Then our impressive coastal hiking holiday on the Côtes-d’Armor is just perfect. Experience a total of 93 kilometres of the unique natural landscape in nine days and seven daily stages. You hike almost exclusively on old customs officers’ paths from the Goëlo Coast to the pink granite coast and get to see all sorts of wonderful things. Unusual plants such as colourful hydrangeas, mimosas or fragrant eucalyptus trees await you while hiking on the flower island of Bréhat, which you can reach via a short boat ride. The circular hike on the seven islands on the sixth day of the holiday is also astonishing: not only is this the oldest bird sanctuary in of France, but also penguins and gannets live here.

Highlights of the nine-day hiking holiday Steep Coast of Brittany

  • Unforgettable coastal hikes: Every day anew you experience fantastic coastal hikes between the Goëlo coast and the pink granite coast. The two circular hikes on the island of Bréhat and the ‘Sept Îles’ provide even more variety.
  • Hiking for connoisseurs: When hiking in France, one thing is guaranteed – enjoyment will not be neglected. Not only scenic, but also culinary you can look forward to the excellent cuisine and the wonderful Breton wines such as Cabernet, Pinot or Merlot.
  • Natural paradise in Brittany: The coastal scenery between the Goëlo Coast and the pink granite coast is home to numerous species of birds and wild flowers such as orchids, poppies and heather. The island of Bréhat is home to a particularly exotic floral splendor with mimosa, hydrangea and laurel and eucalyptus trees. Wonderful Brittany!
  • Picture-perfect port Perros-Guirec: The small French community on the North coast is particularly charming and offers its visitors a picture-perfect port.

Einzigartig und abwechslungsreich
Erleben von einzigartigen Küstenlandschaften in immer wieder neuen Farbvariationen im Zusammenspiel von Meer, Felsen und Grün. Die Côte de Granit Rose (besonders um Ploumanach), der Küstenabschnitt von Paimpol nach Tréguier (mit vielen alten Häusern) und die Küste mit den weissen Stränden um Trégastel unterscheiden sich, so dass nie Eintönigkeit aufkommt. Die Lage der Hotels am Meer, die bretonische Gastfreundschaft in der Vorsaison und das ausgeklügelte Wanderprogramm (Halbpension nach den langen Wanderungen, Besuch der Île de Bréhat mit dem ersten Schiff usw.) halfen mit, diese Reise mit 5 Sternen auszuzeichnen.

GR 34 Bretagne
Die zugesandten Unterlagen waren sehr gut, der Transport vom Gepäck hat ausgezeichnet funktioniert. Die Zimmer waren in Ordnung, bis auf zwei Unterkünfte, da gab es keinen Föhn. Das Frühstück war in allen Unterkünften sehr gut und ausreichend. Wenn wir Hilfe bei Taxibestellungen oder Auskünfte über Ziele im Ort brauchten, wurde uns immer sehr gut weiter geholfen. Wenn unsere Französischkenntnisse nicht ausreichend waren, konnten wir uns immer sehr gut mit Englisch weiter unterhalten. Der GR 34 ist immer sehr gut markiert und die Markierungen sind immer zu finden. Sehr schöne Wanderwege an der Küste entlang und es war eine ruhige Zeit. Wir können diesen Küstenabschnitt von Paimpol nach Perros-Guirec nur empfehlen.

Steilküsten der Bretagne
Sehr abwechslungsreich, viele wunderbare Eindrücke - Blumen, Felsen, Meer - die Gastronomie war sehr entsprechend - die Kategorie A hat sich besonders in Perros-Guirec sehr ausgezahlt - das Wetterglück (an 5 Tagen viel Sonne) hat auch beigetragen zu einer wunderbaren Reise.

Großartige Landschaft - faszinierende Inselwelten
Der Modulaufbau war sehr gut und wir konnten unsere Bedürfnisse anpassen, d.h. auch mal mehr wandern. Die Ausflugsempfehlungen (Sept-îles, Ile de Bréhat) waren sehr gut. Die Route war sorgfältig beschreiben und die Varianten zum GR34 machten Sinn.

Küstenwanderung in der Bretagne
Die Streckenführung war wunderbar und die Hotels sehr schön gelegen. Ein landschaftlicher Hochgenuss und eine kulinarische Gaumenfreude - besonders außerhalb der Halbpension. Der Transfer funktionierte perfekt und sehr pünktlich.
