GR34, BrittanyVitré (near Rennes) - Tour-du-Parc (Morbihan, south coast), 1700 km, 10 weeks

The GR34 - or Sentier des Douaniers - is a trail for those who enjoy hiking on high cliffs, views of the ocean, smell of salt water. Brittany has the best coastal scenery of France. Maybe it has not the quiescence of the English coastline. There is a remarkable connection between England and Brittany, a similarity in language and culture. The trail starts a bit inland, near Rennes, runs north, and then rounds the entire peninsula including the westernmost point of France, Cap du Raz.

  • Positive Only the part of the trail I have followed : the part with the cote granit rose. This is a beautiful coastal trail over the round pink rocks. Great coastline!

  • Positive I hiked the part from St.-Malo to Brest and I loved it. The coast offers many diffrent characters. I loved that the trail follows the ocean all the time. If you plan a little you can stay every night on a camping or in a room. You don't need a map to find your way, it is very well marked! Ressuply is easy to get.
  • Negative This might be a problem for someone: theres no option of staying in a hostel but in the "big cities". I disliked the parts I had to hike on streets but there where very few. In my opinion there was too much zivilisation along the trail. I crossed at least 2 or 3 little villages every day.
