Your cycling tour in Brittany: Morbihan region:

Discover the fantastic lights and colours of Brittany. Your bike stages will guide you through its amazing landscapes: between its range of islands, its lovely creeks and its wild beaches.
Via the historic city of Vannes, you will cycle around the Gulf, from ocean to rivers, with all the beautiful islands as a perfect backdrop.

Reach the Rhuys peninsula in front of the sea, ride along the charming fishing ports of Larmor Baden, Port Navalo or Saint Goustan, and admire the enigmatic megalithic complex of Carnac! Between land and ocean, you will enjoy the changing and fantastic lights of the Morbihan Gulf, depending on the time of day and on the tide.

Day 1 : Arrival in Sarzeau


Discover this small village, nicely located in the Rhuys peninsula, between the Morbihan Gulf and the Atlantic ocean.

Day 2 : Sarzeau – Arzon | 35 km


Go south towards the imposing Château de Suscinio! On the seaside, this mediaeval Château de Suscinio, built during the 13th and 15th centuries was the favourite home of the Brittany dukes. Then cycle to the ‘Pointe St Jacques’ then to the very beautiful St Gildas de Rhuys peninsula and its 11th century church. Continue to the Gulf up to the tiny fishing port ‘Le Logeo’ before joining Arzon.

Day 3 : Arzon – Auray | 40 km


Reach Port Navalo and embark for a boat transfer to Locmariaquer. Then continue to La Trinité-sur-Mer, a charming fishing port and marina, before reaching the town of Carnac, world famous for its megalithic sites! Proceed to Auray, an old harbour city tucked away on an inlet.

Day 4 : Auray – Vannes | 32 km


Take a look at in the charming mediaeval Port of St Goustan before starting your last bike stage in the heart of the Morbihan Gulf. Reach the picturesque ports of Le Bono, Larmor Baden (from where you walk along the sumptuous Berder Island) then Arradon, a seaside resort known as the Morbihan Riviera, before reaching Vannes.
Vannes is a city well known for its ramparts and its charming marina. Discover the city “intra-muros” (inside the fortification) with its pretty half-timbered houses.

" Circuits vraiment bien adaptés pour des vélos. "

Organisation parfaite de la part de RANDOVELO  de ce périple. Excellents supports documentaires. Accueils de plus charmants dans les hotels. Circuits vraiment bien adaptés pour des vélos. Un grand plaisir d’avoir pu visiter l’ile d’ARZ. Des alignements de menhirs, des dolmens et tumulus à gogo. C’était plus que parfait. RandoVélo très apprécié dans les hotels.

Une très belle découverte du Golfe du Morbihan en famille: l’agence est très sérieuse et disponible pour répondre à toutes nos demandes (siège bébé notamment). Le circuit est abordable et les étapes adaptées pour notre famille; le matériel était d’excellente qualité (vélo électrique & classique) et les hôtels bien situés et très agréables.

" Vraiment super "

Rando à velo autour du golf du Morbihan, sur 5 jours, c’était vraiment super. Un accueil de qualité dans chaque hotel, les valises déjà dans les chambres à notre arrivée, un circuit bien balisé mais qui nous laisse la possibilité de nous echapper pour visiter les sites que nous avions repérés sur le parcours. Bravo et encore merci randovelo
