Best things to do in Brittany

One of the most obvious attractions is, of course, the beach. Armed with a fishing net and a bucket, children will while away the hours rock-pooling and crab fishing along the shores.shell-hunting-in-logonna-daoulas

 

 

Out on the water, take your pick from sailing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding or even kite-surfing!paddle-ride-between-granite-rocks-in-brignogan

Kite surfing at La Torche, a spot which is also popular for surf and funboard competitionsKite-surfing-in-la-Torche

 

 

Walking and cycling routes go right around the coastline and inland, taking in fabulous panoramic views, lighthouses, castles and historic monuments along the way. Fort La Latte lies on Cap Frehel on the north coast and is on the GR 34 hiking route. Whether you set out on a serious hike or just take a trip to the fort, the views here are stunning either way.walk-in-the-dunes-of-Houat

 

 

Mont St Michel - technically located in neighbouring Normandy, Bretons like to stake their claim to this iconic monasterial village that gets cut off from the mainland twice a day at high tide.Mont-Saint-Michel

 

 

Take a ferry over to an island – there are plenty to choose from. The Ile de Bréhat is just off the coast opposite Paimpol. It’s a car-free environment and you can spend your time exploring the pink-hued rocks and puffin-spotting. Alternatively, the unspoilt island of Belle-Ile can be reached by ferry from Quiberon and explored by renting a bike.Bréhat-Island

 

 

Brocéliande forest is home to the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and a great place to visit. Gnarled trees, wispy mists and shards of sunlight create a mystical atmosphere that changes as the seasons unfold.menhir-in-broceliande-forest

 

 

Great family days out include Le Labyrinthe de Malido, which is a giant “maize maze” – a labyrinth formed in a field of maize.

Fearless adventurers can head to Bertheaume Iroise Aventure for an adrenaline fix, where they can teeter across cable wire crossings high above the sea and whizz down zip slides.
For good all-round family fun, Le Caroûj is an outdoor active games park where visitors of all ages can play traditional Breton pastimes including tug of war or giant skittles. There’s also an indoor area to beat the boredom on a rainy day.

 

 

For something a little bit different, head to Carnöet to visit La Vallée des Saints. The site is a larger-than-life sculpture project created in 2008.la-vallée-des-saints-near-Callac

 

Monumental sculptures of Breton saints loom above the fields, with more being added every year. In 2018 there were almost a hundred of them, and the project intends to keep going until it reaches 1,000. A truly awe-inspiring sight.
