Ride along the Atlatic coast, in an area of Brittany that is known in France as the world's end!
After spending the night just steps away from the castle medieval of Brest, you will head out on your bike will, on a tour that will take you to the edge of the harbour. You will then enjoy a ferry crossing with your bike, of course. The beginning of your stay is sure to set you up for a great trip!
First you will discover the charms of the Crozon peninsula, then there's a climb for those who want to brave it, to of one of the 7 Breton summits. You will climb to 330m altitude (from sea level) and find yourself towering over a whole section of the route.Your efforts will be rewarded with incredible panoramic views and they you can enjoy a nice descent to your charming hotel, which is situated in the heart of the forest. Here you can revel in the peace and quiet, and recover from your first days efforts.
The Pointe du Raz is worth the effort of the 2 further stages it takes to reach it. A very special atmosphere awaits you here. We must leave the bikes and head out on foot to reach this world’s end. The jagged coast, sheared by the wind and the incessantbeating of the waves has carved out a spectacular landscape.
