Description

Day 1: Angers
Individual arrival in Angers. Take the opportunity to visit this peaceful city, with its imposing castle housing the world's largest medieval tapestry: the Apocalypse Tapestry.

Day 2: Angers - St Florent le Vieil or Ancenis (50 or 65 km)
Today you will cycle through the Anjou vineyards such as the Coteaux de la Loire and the Coteaux de l'Aubance. We recommend visiting Savennières, before reaching the surprising river island of Chalonnes, one of the largest in the Loire Valley. A beautiful stage through typical villages and natural landscapes where life flows to the slow rhythm of the river, up to the village of Saint Florent le Vieil or Ancenis.

Day 3: St Florent le Vieil or Ancenis - Nantes (44 or 55 km)
Cycling along the banks of the Loire, you will cross a large variety of natural landscapes, habitats of so much wildlife and river birds. A quiet stretch on the bike path will then lead you to Champtoceaux, immersed in one of the most beautiful panoramas of the Loire and located on the border between Anjou and Brittany. The route follows the course of the Loire up to Nantes, capital of the Loire Atlantique department and one of the most dynamic cities in France with an immense historical-artistic, architectural, and cultural heritage, which you can discover by strolling through its numerous pedestrian streets.

Day 4: Nantes - Saint-Brevin-Les-Pins (58 km)
You leave the city crossing the river on board a small boat and continue on the bike paths of the Loire à Vélo. The route then follows a narrow canal for a while, crossing a wetland area first and then the countryside to reach the estuary of the Loire at St Brevin les Pins, a seaside resort with a large beach bordered by sand dunes and a pine forest, the ideal place to enjoy some much deserved rest at the end of the trip.

Day 5: Saint-Brevin-Les-Pins - Le Croisic (53 km + bus)
Today you will cycle from the estuary of the Loire to the wild coast of Le Croisic. You start with a short bus ride across the Saint-Nazaire, the longest bridge crossing the Loire River and connecting the town of Saint Nazaire with Saint-Brevin-Les-Pins. Afterwards, take the opportunity to discover the famous salt pans of the medieval city of Guérande. In the heart of a natural park, this medieval city offers many testimonies of its historical past. We then continue along the wild coast before reaching Le Croisic, a beautiful harbour and coastal town in the Loire Atlantique.
 
Day 6: Le Croisic
After breakfast, end of services and individual departure or extension of the stay.
