Brittany is one of the most tranquil and scenic places to take a trip off the beaten track and meander along woodland trails and canal towpaths. Not only can you follow all of the signposted circuits but you are also allowed to walk or cycle anywhere in the countryside as long as you respect the crops and the odd very rare private property sign.
Brittany is synonymous with idyllic cycling along quiet country lanes and backroads. The scenery in this part of France is stunning. Brittany is famous for its rich cultural heritage and architecture. Castles, feudal fortresses and abbeys are all waiting to be visited, and the area is rich in flora and fauna. The choice of route to take is limitless.
Brittany has some stunning beaches, so if you fancy spending a day at the coast you will be spoilt for choice. Being so central, you can travel to the beaches near Saint Brieuc, Binic and Dinard in less than an hour. If you are looking for the perfect surfing spot, the beaches at Perros-Guirec and La Torche, Ploemer on the south coast can be reached in about 90 minutes.
Whatever your age, you’re sure to have fun on one of the 30+ rides at Kingoland in Plumelin. Or discover the largest Labyrinth in Brittany at Karaez Adrenaline at
Carhaix-Plouguer. Enjoy a day out on the zip line, monkey bridges, giant slides, climbing wall, hanging nets ... and much more at the Balade du Père Nicolas Park, Pluméliau.
There are many fantastic shopping centres in Brittany. The Alma centre in Rennes is spotlessly clean, modern, with a good range of shops. The perfect place to spend a rainy day... and a lot of money . Traveling a little further the Galerie in Quimper and La Madeleine Centre in Saint Malo are also worth a visit.
There are several places nearby where you will find equestrian centres providing activities suitable for the beginner to the more advanced rider. Or you may prefer to join an organised group taking a pony trekking adventure through the countryside and woodlands of this beautiful region of Brittany.
