Brittany Côtes d’Armor self-guided walking trail new for 2012
Discover the remarkable rugged Breton coastline – with its wealth of wildlife, beautiful beaches and medieval towns – on a new six-night self-guided trail courtesy of HF Holidays, the UK’s largest walking holiday organisation.
Brittany Côtes d’Armor explores the natural beauty of the Plougrescant peninsula, the wide range of sea birds and wild flowers along the coast and the region’s rich history dating back to the Neolithic age. Daily walks are between nine and 15 miles with minor ascents.
Highlights include walks on the Isle of Bréhat, around the peninsula via the Sillon de Talbert – a thin line of land stretching three kilometres into the sea and made mostly of sand and pebbles – and along the coastal path through quaint hamlets to the town of Perros Guirec.
Other options include a visit to one of France’s oldest and best preserved bird sanctuaries and a walk through the picturesque port of Ploumanach.
Available from the beginning of March through to the end of November, the cost is £585 per person, based on two sharing and inclusive of six nights’ accommodation with breakfast at comfortable hotels and guesthouses en route, three dinners, luggage transfers, plus maps and detailed walk notes.
