Brittany or Breizh, surrounded by the Channel and the Atlantic Ocean, counts more than 1.700 km of wonderful cycle routes. This enchanted land of the Bretons is crisscrossed by eight major 'vélo-routes' and greenways, taking you through unspoiled nature and along characteristic towns and villages. You mainly follow rivers and canal towpaths, former railway tracks (so-called 'voies verte') and quiet backroads. Choose one of our green, active cycling holidays listed below as a family, a couple or with a bunch of friends.
