Finistère, literally 'land's end', is set on the rocky coast of north-west France, in the heart of Brittany. Its ancient Celtic culture has left the area rich in churches, calvaries and chapels, hewn out of the local granite rocks of this rugged landscape. Picturesque lighthouses stand sentinel on rocky cliffs that contrast with the broad sandy beaches at the southern end of the Bay of Audierne. This is the quiet side of Brittany and it is here you will enjoy the best of coastal cycling.

"Never far from the sea, we cycled through ever-changing scenery, dotted with pretty chapels, that was a delight from start to finish."

Our undulating coastal route leads you from bustling fishing ports to traditional whitewashed farming communities, past menhirs and dolmens of an ancient bygone culture, and on to charming small hotels and restaurants where you will savour delightful local cuisine.
