Day 4 in Brittany: Exploring Île-de-Bréhat, Cap d'Erquy and the Monts d'Arrée

Day 4 of the Know-how Challenge #ExploreFrance starts on the right foot! The three teams were able to explore three scenic and very distinct landmarks of Brittany!

A "Discovery" walk on Île-de-Bréhat

The Art & Culture team discovered this little corner of paradise renamed "the Island of Flowers" of Brittany (External link) for the variety of its flora and the beauty of its landscapes. Bréhat is only about ten minutes by boat from the tip of the Arcouest in Paimpol. And yet, the change of scenery is palpable!

Guided walk on the Cap d'Erquy

The Gastronomy and Local Products team learned a lot about this active fishing port known for its delicious St James shell, impressive hiking trails, the unique colour of its pink sandstone, and its ten gorgeous sandy beaches!

Later in the afternoon at Spa Marin du Val-Andrée, the two travellers enjoyed an “Escale Breiz” ritual treatment based on Breton products: buckwheat, black wheat, and honey.

Exploring the Huelgoat Forest and hiking the Monts d'Arrée

The Between Land & Sea team visited the legendary Huelgoat Forest ("high wood" in Breton) which has inspired many popular stories with its odd-shaped rocks and menhirs. They then went on a hike to the Monts d'Arrée, an ancient mountain range in western Brittany (External link) that is part of the Armorican massif. The Mountains are composed of Paleozoic sedimentary and metamorphic rocks.
