STANDARD : with accommodation in 2-star hotels


Day 1: Arrival in Bayeux & Excursion to the D-Day landing beaches – 52 km
Bayeux was one of the few cities spared from the bombing and it shows! As you walk through its small streets, you will find the typical Norman architecture with its half-timbered houses and bourgeois houses. Take the time to visit the Bayeux Tapestry Museum which represents a large part of the history of the region, the conquest of William the Conqueror. The rest of the day will be devoted to visiting the Landing Beaches, still steeped in history more than 70 years after this memorable day. You will pass by Omaha Beach before continuing to Colleville-sur-mer and its very moving American cemetery.

Day 2: Bayeux – Villers Bocage – 40 km
You will pedal today in the bocage with its green and peaceful landscapes, take the time to admire the typical half-timbered houses of the region that you will find in the small villages that you will pass through to reach your hotel in Villers-Bocage.

Day 3: Villers Bocage – Vire – 46 km
You will continue your journey through the bocage to reach the Souleuvre and its imposing Viaduct where many people get scared when bungee jumping! Your day will end in Vire, a village that has witnessed history from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Day 4: Vire – St Hilaire du Harcouët – 55 km
Today you will be able to enjoy the peace and serenity that the Normandy countryside offers you through its small villages and nature. You will reach the charming village of Mortain situated on a rocky spur surrounded by waterfalls which gives you a superb view of the valley. The day ends at your hotel in St Hilaire du Harcouët.

Day 5: St Hilaire du Harcouët – Mont St Michel (Pontorson) – 56 km
You will leave the Normandy countryside to reach the majestic bay of Mont Saint Michel. You will walk along the salt meadows to reach the small town of Pontorson, but you can enjoy the magnificent view of the bay along the way.

Day 6: Le Mont St Michel (Pontorson) – Le Vivier sur Mer – 33 km
It’s a short stopover that awaits you today to give you time to visit the wonder of Normandy (or Brittany, depending on your opinion!) that is the Mont Saint Michel. It is better to leave your bikes at the foot of the Mont to be able to climb the hundreds of steps that make up this building, at the top a reward awaits you, a sublime view of the bay! It’s time to come back down and get back in the saddle to join the Vivier sur Mer for the night.

Day 7: Le Vivier sur Mer – Saint-Malo – 40 km
Today you will walk along the salt meadows again and you will gradually see the landscape change, the granite coast is revealed.
