Nature reserves

Is Brittany a great seaside destination? Of course it is! But… with its shades of green, it’s also a land of unparalleled natural delights! Venture beyond the miles of coastline and discover a myriad of worlds. Discover unspoilt landscapes with 3 regional nature parks, a marine nature park, 3 “Grands Sites de France” sites (sites conserved and managed following sustainable development principles), mighty dunes, wild moors and ancient forests that invite you to contemplate and get active. Follow local guides as they explore both marked trails and hidden paths for a 100% natural adventure.

A wide range of activities

Brittany has something to satisfy every desire for adventure. On land, get your trainers out for a run on some of the most beautiful trails, or strap on your harness to tackle the best climbing spots. One pedal and you’re back on the road to freedom, thanks to an excellent network of cycle paths for all levels and profiles. Brittany has two major cycle routes: The Vélodyssée, France’s longest cycle route and a paradise for families, and the Vélomaritime, for more experienced cyclists. Mountain bikers and gravel enthusiasts are also welcome, with specially designated trails. On the water, paddle in hand, why not try paddle yoga or kayaking? The perfect way to take in the scenery, biodiversity and local heritage in complete tranquillity. A guaranteed way to get away from it all!

Time to explore: on foot, by bike or by boat

Do your clients dream of exploring Brittany in complete freedom? On land or in the water, the possibilities are endless! A boating holiday is the perfect way to explore Brittany’s 600km of waterways. At 8 km/h, there’s no need for a boat licence – simply cast off and discover the natural beauty and adventures of Brittany! And if you prefer to stay on dry land, the 11,000km of footpaths are an inexhaustible source of discovery. From the emblematic GR 34 coastal trail to walks in inland Brittany, nature guides and storytellers take it in turns to share the wonders of nature and the magic of Breton legends. And there are accredited accommodation providers all over the region.
