To do in
4 days
3 nights


4 days between Dinan and Perros-Guirec for a truly relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. So what does this circuit have to offer? Relaxing activities, nature spots to recharge your batteries, great places to stay – from the unusual to the 5-star… take a break from it all and rediscover yourself!

Step 01

A medieval adventure in Dinan

Time stands still in Dinan. What better way to start your journey than wandering the cobbled streets of this charming medieval town. With its 14th century castle, 3km of ramparts, timber-framed houses and artists’ studios, this City of Art and History offers a truly laid-back way of life. A great suggestion for your clients: climb the Clock Tower or the Sainte-Catherine Tower for breathtaking views over the Rance Valley. And don’t forget the traditional and charming setting of Rue du Jerzual. It leads to the harbour and the towpath, for a stroll in a most calming setting!

Step 02

Paddle-yoga on the Rance river

Head for Le Minihic-sur-Rance. This former seafaring village, with its beautiful captain’s cottages on the banks of the estuary, is a real gem. In the midst of this land-sea setting, Flora offers a de Gasquet yoga class… on the water! Be sure to reassure your clients that even beginners can do it. Flora is a professional and adapts her classes to all levels. You’ll start by gliding gently towards a quiet cove. Here you will move through a series of poses: Cobra, Downward Dog, Warrior Pose… For more experienced yogis, you can even try your hand at the Candle Pose. Above all, on the board, lulled by the water and the sound of birdsong, everyone can enjoy the moment to the full. Find your inner Zen!

Step 02

Awaken your senses on the Cap d’Erquy

A delight for the eyes, the nose and the ears… A remarkable site, the Cap d’Erquy is one of the Breton landscapes that awakens all the senses. The cliffs are scattered with moorland, gorse and heather, giving you time to reflect. You can also give in to the temptation of dipping your toes (at least) in the clear waters of the beaches. Nothing could be more stimulating for the body and the soul! The trail takes you past stunning blue lakes set in ancient pink sandstone quarries. A unique place and a pleasant surprise on the GR® 34.
