France: Normandy & Brittany

Can’t decide if you’d rather cycle the historic coast of Normandy or Brittany’s charming seaside villages? On this VBT cycling vacation, you get it all! With six full nights to explore the region, you’ll enjoy a well-paced journey—unpacking for three nights in each authentic, French hotel. Explore scenic Bayeux—renowned for its tapestry depicting the Norman Conquest. Dive into history when a local historian walks you through the D-day invasion during a guided tour of Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery. Pedaling along the sea-swept coast of Brittany with your French VBT trip leaders, you’ll discover the ancient walled city of Dinan and the seaside village of Cancale—where you can sample fresh local oysters. A guided tour of the glorious Benedictine abbey at Mont Saint-Michel is a highlight you’ll remember for a lifetime.  

Tour Highlights

  • The official 80th anniversary of the D-day Landings and the Battle of Normandy that led to the liberation of France and Europe will be celebrated on Omaha Beach on June 6th, 2024, in addition to cultural events in the region throughout May and June. This anniversary is likely the last commemoration with living WWII veterans. Visualize the dramatic events of D-day as you tour Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery with our expert local guide.
  • Learn how cider is made during a visit to a family-run apple orchard—and enjoy a taste and picnic.
  • Stroll a fairytale setting of ramparts, half-timbered houses, and harbor views on a guided tour of the Breton town of Dinan.
  • Savor crepes, a paper-thin-style savory pancake and specialty of Brittany and Normandy during dinner at an authentic creperie.
  • Visit spectacular Mont Saint-Michel, the medieval island-village crowned by its well-preserved Benedictine abbey.

Itinerary

Fri, May 10 to Sun, May 19 - 2024

Show Itinerary:

Your vacation is about to begin! Spend your first night aloft and arrive ready for an unforgettable trip.

A VBT representative will greet you at the airport to start your first day in Paris* off right. A complimentary car service will whisk you to your centrally located hotel. From here, you are perfectly positioned to explore this charming city at your leisure.

After an included breakfast, meet in the hotel lobby at 8:30 a.m. to join private coach transportation to Bayeux, departing at 9:00 a.m. Travel time is approximately 3.5 hours, depending on traffic. Meet your VBT trip leaders in Bayeux. They immediately guide you on a short orientation walk through the medieval city to your hotel, where you have a light lunch before a safety and bike-fitting session.

Your bike adventure begins with a simple warm-up ride from your hotel out into the verdant Norman countryside to Longues-sur-Mer, where you view World War II coastal fortifications on a headland overlooking the English Channel.

This evening, gather with your fellow travelers for a welcome reception, followed by dinner at the hotel.

Today’s Ride Choices

Afternoon: Warm-up — 20 km (12 miles)

What to Expect:

Your warm-up ride is a loop out of the center of Bayeux and into the countryside along a combination of roads and bike lanes to the German batteries of Longues-sur-Mer on a bluff overlooking the English Channel.

Cumulative Distance Range: 20 km (12 miles)

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast this morning, you’ll cycle through rolling farmlands and timeless country villages. This morning’s destination is the coastal town of Arromanches, which played a vital role in the D-day landings. Here, Allies built one of their famous Mulberry harbors—a portable, temporary structure that helped transfer troops and supplies. The remains can still be seen at low tide. Learn more about the harbor and the landings at the D-day Museum, during an included audio-guide visit. Another possible independent discovery in this town is Arromanches 360, a circular theater showing a fascinating film about D-day and its aftermath using wartime footage and modern images. Enjoy lunch on your own in Arromanches—and perhaps even go for a swim in the Channel!

Afterward, you either cycle or shuttle back to the hotel. This afternoon, you may choose to visit Bayeux’s stunning cathedral, consecrated in 1077 in the presence of William the Conqueror. Or you may choose to visit the museum housing the intricate 11th-century Bayeux tapestry, a treasured fabric over 220 feet long depicting the Battle of Hastings and the victory of William the Conqueror over the English. In pedestrian-friendly Bayeux, you might also wish to walk to the Battle of Normandy Memorial Museum. Tonight, you have the night free to enjoy dinner on your own in town.

Today’s Ride Choices

Morning: Bayeux to Arromanches — 22 km (14 miles)

Afternoon: Arromanches to Bayeux — 11 km (7 miles) | Arromanches to Bayeux PLUS — 19 km (12 miles)

What to Expect:

This morning’s route takes you through rural countryside with typical Norman farms and villages to the coast and beach in the town of Arromanches, with views of the artificial harbor. If you choose to continue cycling in the afternoon, choose from shorter and longer routes back to the hotel.

Cumulative Distance Range: 11 – 41 km (7 – 26 miles)

Included Meals: Breakfast

This morning, cycle through verdant countryside and fragrant orchards past old stone farmhouses. Arrive in Omaha Beach, perhaps the best-known D-day landing site. There’ll be free time for lunch here before joining your passionate local guide, a World War II expert who leads you along the shore and sheds light on the D-day landings. Operation Overlord started in the early-morning hours of June 6, 1944, and remains the largest military operation in history.

You’ll then cycle the short distance to the American Cemetery, a 170-acre (69-hectare), meticulously landscaped memorial overlooking Omaha Beach and the English Channel. Your local guide will again provide insight into this site, containing 9,387 perfectly aligned white crosses and Stars of David, marking the graves of the brave American servicemen and women who perished during World War II.

After time at these moving sites, you take a shuttle back to Bayeux. Later, join your trip leaders for dinner at an authentic creperie serving the specialty of the region.

Today’s Ride Choices

Morning: Bayeux to Omaha Beach — 30 km (18 miles)

Afternoon: Omaha Beach to American Cemetery — 8 km (5 miles)

Cumulative Distance Range: 8 – 39 km (5 – 24 miles)

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Pedal out of Bayeux into rural Normandy for a close-up look at its celebrated fertile pasturelands dotted with grazing cows and half-timbered country manors to an apple orchard and cider maker.

You may choose briefly to explore Bayeux’s small Wednesday outdoor market, and shop for a few local specialties.

Since the 1600s, Normandy has been known for its exceptional apples and the beverages they produce, notably cider and Calvados, the famous apple brandy named for the region. Your hosts at the cider farm will demonstrate how their organic apples are harvested, pressed, and fermented to produce cider. Of course, samples are provided! Lunch at a nearby local restaurant caps off your visit.

After lunch, you may continue cycling toward the Abbey of Saint-Martin-de-Mondaye, settled by the Norbertine order. Dating to the 13th century, the present abbey and church were entirely rebuilt in the 18th century. The long option continues to the town of Balleroy, ending just in front of the 17th-century Château de Balleroy.

From here, travel by coach to Saint-Malo, a beautiful medieval fortified city along Brittany’s coast, the legendary home of French corsairs or privateers. Your hotel is located directly on the broad sand beach and the wide seaside promenade leading into the walled Old Town of Saint-Malo. During your stay, you can indulge in several spa and therapy rooms, including an indoor, seawater swimming pool (Aquatonic). Stroll to a local restaurant for dinner tonight.

Today’s Ride Choices

Morning: Bayeux to Les Vergers de Ducy to Lingevres — 18 km (11 miles) | Lingevres to Balleroy — 19 km (12 miles)

After breakfast, shuttle approximately 40 minutes to Dinan, a fairytale walled city perched high atop a hill on the edge of Brittany. Here, you’ll walk with a local guide along the narrow cobblestone streets of its medieval center, where a splendid Gothic church greets you.

After free time for lunch, reunite with your bike at the town’s riverside port and enjoy a scenic ride along the River Rance. You’ll pause to explore Saint-Suliac, a charming village known for its quintessential granite homes draped with fishing nets. Later this afternoon, you have time to enjoy your hotel’s amenities, swim in the ocean (weather permitting), or stroll along the promenade. Your trip leaders will provide suggestions for dinner on your own tonight.

Today’s Ride Choices

Afternoon: Dinan to Saint-Suliac — 26 km (16 miles) | Saint-Suliac to Saint-Malo — 19 km (12 miles)

What to Expect:

After a tour and exploration of Dinan’s market, ride from this beautifully preserved Breton town along an easy designated bike route along the Rance River with a few miles of hard-packed gravel and on to the charming fishing port of Saint-Suliac. On the longer option, you continue cycling from Saint-Suliac through country roads, then onto the slightly busier streets of Saint-Malo.

Cumulative Distance Range: 19 – 45 km (12 – 28 miles)

Included Meals: Breakfast

Today’s ride traces the beautifully rugged Brittany coast. Your first stop is the Jacques Cartier Manor House. In 1534, Cartier crossed the Atlantic and sailed up the St. Lawrence River as far as modern-day Montreal. After these explorations and naming the land Canada, he settled in this manor house situated between Saint-Malo and Cancale. Enjoy a visit and short film about this native Breton.

Later, you’ll cycle along the coast, admiring sweeping views from Pointe du Grouin before continuing to the picturesque fishing port of Cancale, known for its superior huîtres, or oysters. King Louis XIV was reportedly so enamored of these particular bivalves that he had fresh oysters brought daily from Cancale to Versailles. You’ll have the opportunity to taste them for yourself, elbow to elbow with locals, during a visit to an oyster market.

After free time for lunch, loop back to Saint-Malo on another scenic route.

Tonight, gather at your hotel for a special farewell dinner.

Today’s Ride Choices

Morning: Saint-Malo to Cancale — 24 km (15 miles)

Afternoon: Cancale to Saint-Malo — 13 km (8 miles)

What to Expect:

Cumulative Distance Range: 13 – 37 km (8 – 23 miles)

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

After breakfast, say goodbye to your VBT trip leaders and depart for Paris via one of the most visited monuments in France: Mont Saint-Michel. Upon arrival, meet your local guide in the parking of Mont Saint-Michel. Then, accompany him or her across the causeway in the Gulf of Saint-Malo to the island-village of Mont Saint-Michel.

A UNESCO World Heritage site, the cone-shaped island is best known for the spectacular and well-preserved 13th-century Benedictine abbey that sits at its peak, roughly 240 feet (73 meters) above sea level. Your guide leads you along narrow medieval streets, spiraling up to the Gothic-period monastic buildings.

After free time for lunch and strolling the shops and atmospheric warrens on your own, rejoin the coach and travel to your hotel, located near Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris (approximately 4.5 hours, depending on traffic). This evening is free for you to dine in the hotel’s restaurant and enjoy its amenities.

Included Meals: Breakfast

After an included breakfast, travel by shuttle train to your departure terminal within Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris. The CDGVal Shuttle Train is a complimentary train connecting all terminals and train and bus stations at Charles de Gaulle Airport, running every four minutes. Please plan to leave the hotel about three hours before your flight time for the short walk to the Terminal 3-Roissypole train shuttle station and the short shuttle ride to your correct terminal.

We had a wonderfully-planned week of cycling along small, beautiful farm roads with itineraries bringing us to the coast of most days. Riding in August in 70 degree weather was great. We all loved seeing the texture of rural, historic France and learning more about Normandy and Brittany. The trip includes a focus on local food culture - the visit to the Cider farm was really special, as were the Cancale oysters and dinners at local restaurants. We also got so much out of learning more about WWII even though I did not choose this trip primarily for that reason.…

We had a wonderful experience. The itinerary, guides and bike routes couldn’t have been any better. Everything was planned the minute we landed in Paris. Would definitely recommend to anyone with an interest in the Normandy history.
