Discover a part of the Pink Granite Coast from the city of Lannion and its surroundings.
Start with a day in the capital of Trégor, from where you can hop on your bike and follow the route that will take you straight to the coast. If you prefer to wait until the next day to start pedaling, you can (and should!) stroll the cobbled streets of this town, contemplate its original architecture, and why not, enjoy a detour to eat a crêpe.
Still on small shared roads, through fields and forest, you continue your itinerary to Perros-Guirec. At your own pace, you will discover this charming Breton seaside resort the way you want: on foot along the GR34 or by boat to discover the surrounding archipelago.
Finally, you take the Vélomaritime back to Lannion, you can extend the pleasure and lengthen your stage by the coast.
Lannion + loop tour from Lannion - between harbours and beaches
On this first day, you have the choice between discovering Lannion, walking its hilly streets and contemplating its typical wooden houses, or, taking your bike and starting your discovery of the region!
You leave the river Léguer and smell the first sea sprays soon. After leaving the harbour of Yaudet (where you will certainly dream to buy a small boat for your peaceful days), you arrive at the harbour of Locquemau and enjoy some « ends of the earth » landscapes.
Take time to taste the typical shellfishes of the region and get on your bike to reach the beach of Saint-Michel-en-Grève where you can take a swim in the turquoise sea. You follow then the Kerdu valley in an idyllic scenery, on small roads, and you reach back Lannion.
Ride along the coast towards Perros-Guirec, the seaside resort of the Côtes d’Amor. After cycling for a while, take the high ground at Trébeurden and admire all the shades of blue in the sea from the Pointe de Bihit.
On the way, don’t miss the opportunity to stretch your legs in the white sandy beaches: why not even take a dip in the water?!
Enjoy a free day in the beautiful seaside town of Perros-Guirec. You can decide to walk around and discover the city on foot.
Walk along the Sentier des Douaniers
This path, 8km long, links the port of Ploumanac’h to the beach of Trestaou in Perros. All along, you will walk along the granite rocks on which the waves of the sea break. A little advice: don’t hesitate to go there at the end of the afternoon, when the sun is setting, it’s almost like being on a tropical island.
Cruise on the Archipel of the 7 islands
Take the boat and discover the Archipel of the 7 islands, made up of a group of rocky islets. Classified as a Nature Reserve since 1976, you will have a breathtaking view of the Pink Granite Coast. Finally, if you like bird watching, this is the ideal place for it. Indeed, the archipelago shelters numerous species, which will be presented to you by the marine guides. This sea trip lasts about 1h45.
Perros - Guirec - Lannion
You can choose to spend some extra time in Perros-Guirec by pacing up and down the stalls of the colourful markets or by following the path of « the Customs Officers » up to Mean Ruz lighthouse – obviously made of pink granite – and cycle peacefully to reach Lannion.
Unless you prefer to move out from the sunrise and admire the shimmering colours of the sea you ride along up to Louannec ? Enjoy your day to discover by bike the lighthouse of Nantouar or the charming secret beaches.
In any case, after leaving the sea, enjoy some bucolic roads and a comfortable cycle path in the heart of a lush forest. You arrive in Lannion, have a safe travel back !
