From Granville to Saint-Malo, between Normandy and Brittany, you will walk in the footsteps of pilgrims, eternal travellers and dreamers. From heritage wonders to natural beauty, let yourself be guided by this legendary itinerary. Walking along the rocky peaks, strikes and wooded valleys, gulls, cormorants and other seabirds will be your companions on the road …

You will appreciate the commented crossing of the strikes of the Mont St-Michel but also the diversity of the landscapes (cliffs, wide open spaces and wild islets) and finally the different points of view on the Mont Saint-Michel.

This itinerary is suitable for walkers who love wide open spaces and sea views: marked path, quality accommodation, luggage transport and information about the region. Everything is planned so that you can make the most of the region and its beauties.

Hiking in freedom – Duration of 8 days – Departure all year round according to your availability and your possibilities.


Day 1

Arrival in Granville and installation at the hotel. If the weather allows you, don’t hesitate to wander through the streets of the one that is nicknamed my “Monaco du Nord”.

Day 2

From Granville to Saint-Jean-Le-Thomas (18 km)
Hike along the coastal path and beaches, from which you can see the Chausey archipelago, composed of 52 islands. You will then climb to the top of the cliffs of Champeaux, where the Cabane Vauban stands. All along the path, you will enjoy superb views of the Mont St-Michel and its bay.

Day 3

From Saint-Jean-Le-Thomas to Beauvoir (17km)

After crossing the dunes of Dragey and its many species of seabirds, we start with an approved boatman to cross the strikes of the bay of Mont Saint-Michel (barefoot and in shorts) to discover an exceptional environment: the history of Tombelaine and pilgrimages, traditional activities, legends, the phenomenon of the tides, silting and major works. At the end of the day, free visit of the Mount, the village and its abbey. Day depending on the schedule of the crossing. Then access on foot to the hotel in Beauvoir.

-> The course of this day depends on the schedule of the crossing.

Day 4

Beauvoir – Roz-sur-Couesnon (14 km)
Crossing the polders, fertile land reclaimed from the sea in the 19th century. The vastness of the landscape stretches out in front of you, a paradise for “pre-salted” sheep that only the raised huts of old fishermen and the gabions of hunters disturb. Then you join Sainte-Broladre, prelude to what the magic of Dol de Bretagne has in store for you. Night at Roz-sur-Couesnon on half board.

Day 5

Roz-sur-Couesnon – Dol de Bretagne (22 km)

Woods, small ponds and charming hamlets line your route. Your excursion continues in the heart of a wooded and mysterious valley until Dol-de-Bretagne. In Dol-de-Bretagne, the Saint-Samson cathedral is imposing by its large dimensions (visit out of the package). Night in Dol-de-Bretagne.

Day 6

Dol de Bretagne – Cancale (21 km)

Departure of the hike in front of the Mont-Dol, a promontory in the middle of the land, which like its cousin the Mont Saint-Michel, is a small granite island subject to eternal legends. Then you join the coastal path that you follow to Cancale, passing by St-Benoît des Ondes and the Pointe des Roches Noires.

Day 7

Cancale – Guilmorais (18 km)

From the famous oyster port of Cancale we follow the customs officers’ path to the Pointe du Grouin, the scene of the highest tides in Europe. Along the way we discover in turn Port Briac, Port Pican and Port Mer, havens of rest that have become small seaside resorts, nestled in creeks protected by high cliffs. Our walk ends in the Duguesclin cove, a superb beach of blond sand. Transfer and night in Saint-Malo.

Day 8

Guimorais- Saint-Malo (16 km)

From the Lupin Gardens, we pick “Le blé en herbe” in the haven of peace chosen by Colette to write her cult novel. You will then pass through the Gulf of Rothéneuf and its Malouinières, and you will cross paradise coves, sandy peninsulas, heaps of sculpted rocks (fee required) and pine forests. Free time in Saint-Malo, the city of privateers. End of stay.
