Cycling along the Brittany coast

Chapter 2 of Brittany from port to port takes you to the shores of the fabulous Pink Granite Coast ...

Leaving from Paimpol, you will travel on a circuit that is resolutely centered around the sea. Six stages that will take you from Côtes d’Armor to Finistère, from Paimpol to Morlaix.

You start on a hybrid bike journey, you will discover a geological miracle: the pink granite coast. It unfolds along 15 kilometers between Trébeurden and Perros-Guirec, and counts among the most astonishing landscapes of Northern Brittany. On a festooned coast, strewn with pebbles, closed bays and peninsulas beaten by the swell, it offers a magical sight that underlines the changing breton lights. The chaos of Ploumanac’h made up of of huge blocks with refined or evocative forms offer a real moment of wonder.

The coast rises progressively towards the west between Trébeurden and the mouth of the Léguer river in Lannion. The steep slopes covered with moors or ferns descend abruptly to the sea towards a chiselled coastlin. The straight cliffs offer beautiful coastal roads with stunning wild landscapes.

The islands of Bréhat, Batz and the archipelago of the 7 islands can be reached by boat. Get on board for short but beautiful cruises to these location of a surprising exoticism!

Brittany from port to port, a journey in chapters that continues …

Day 1

Before your first ride, we invite you to meet one of our guides, at your place of departure. A time of exchange, a privileged moment to give you our last practical tips, must-see places and experiences, to answer all your questions, take care of your bike fitting to begin your trip.

Day 2

From PAIMPOL to TREGUIER 31km 223m Niveau Loisir

After crossing the surrounding countryside of Paimpol, you cross the Trieux. Set back from the sea but bathed by the waters of the Channel, Lézardrieux is perched on the edge of the estuary. The rest of the journey takes you to the small town of Tréguier located at the confluence of Jaudy and Guindy, the two rivers that surround it.

  • For a few more km 49km 492m Niveau Forme

    From the Trieux estuary you will attain the coast to reach Sillon de Talbert. You will go down along from Jaudy to Tréguier.

Day 3

From TREGUIER to PERROS-GUIREC 20km 161m Niveau Loisir

The route takes you to Perros-Guirec by the small bucolic roads of the Breton countryside. You find the seaside end of the stage on the marina of Perros-Guirec. You still need some effort to get to the heights of the seaside resort known for its Thalasso. The tip of the Château de Perros-Guirec provides you with a remarkable view of the archipelago of 7 islands.

  • For a few more km 40km 459m Niveau Forme

    In the morning, we suggest you go around the tip of the Château de Plougrescant and stop for a few moments at the Chasm of Castel Meur where stormy days shake the rocks, where the wind and unleashed elements scream with a rare intensity the strength of an ocean nearby. You will not be disappointed with the rest of the journey when you cross Port-Blanc and its sentry. Many panoramas will give you a breathtaking views of the horizon.

Day 4


You ride to the castle of Costaérès enthroned in the middle of a granitic disorder. No doubt it has been laid there by some giant. As if coming out a thousand and one nights’ tale, it watches the coast since the 18th century. White and pink dominate, Trégastel opens its doors. Appreciate its beauty and nature’s miracle. Spikes, creeks and islets succeed each other, offering a different view of a seaside resort.

In the afternoon enjoy the small beach in Saint-Guirec for a swim or sunbathing Venture out on the “Sentier des Douaniers” and walk among the Chaos and natural Pink Granite sculpture! Walk to the Men Ruz Lighthouse, a beautiful visual sight!

Day 5

From PERROS-GUIREC to PLOUGASNOU 57km 482m Niveau Forme

Near the sea, you ride along the most beautiful stretches of the pink granite coast. On the Grève de Saint-Michel stands a cross, in the middle of the huge beach, aptly named “Cross of Mi-lieue”. Knocked down in 1944, it was found and put up again in May 1993 on the edge of what was, for a long time, the only possible crossing to reach Saint-Effla. The “Big Rock”, a shy granite overhang towards the sea, marks the border of the Plestin territory.

Day 6

From PLOUGASNOU to MORLAIX 25km 223m Niveau Forme

The route takes you from outlook to outlook up to Morlaix for a stage under the sign of the contemplation … From the coastline, natural headlands make it possible to graze the islets: as from the Peninsula of Barnenez in Plouezoc’h, towered over by the most important Neolithic monument in Europe, Barnenez Cairn, 7000 years old. The Bay extends inland, by the River Morlaix, natural border between Leon and Trégor.

Day 7

FROM MORLAIX, CARANTEC LOOP 35km 260m Niveau Loisir

On this last morning, go down the west bank of the Morlaix river to reach Carantec. Each small island is a postcard in itself: Île Louet and its only house turns its back on Taureau Castle, while the Île Sterec, bristling with dense vegetation contrasts with the barren Île Noire surmounted by a white square tower and its lighthouse. Further down, Île Callot, wonder of the Bay, is accessible by foot by a small road, but be careful this is only during a few hours a day.
