The Abers cycle route
This summer, set off on a bike ride along the Véloroute which links Brest to the coast
A 33 km long Véloroute, mostly on the route of the "train-patates"!
What if you prefer the green countryside to the seaside for your holidays?
Following the route of the old potato train, this cycle route will take you from Brest to the Port de l'Aber Wrac'h via Landéda and Plabennec.
Created in June 2012 and inaugurated in September, the Véloroute du Pays des Abers links the port of Aber Wrac'h (Landéda) to Gouesnou, 5 km from our hotel. A tram station at the foot of the hotel allows you to go to Gouesnou.
A second road links Plabennec and Lesneven via Le Drennec. Brest Métropole has made the continuity of this Véloroute to Brest station.
Known as the Route du Train Patates, this old railway line was used to transport vegetables and other goods as well as arsenal workers, soldiers and farmers going to the Brest market. The railway was dismantled after the Second World War and runs smoothly through the countryside on small shared roads and well-developed greenways. The Véloroute has few hills and is safe and easy for children.
In the Pays des Abers, you will discover sublime landscapes
The coastal cycle route runs along the Aber Wrac'h and will allow you to discover the highest lighthouse in Europe, the lighthouse of the Ile Vierge. You will also appreciate the walk along the Aber Benoît, which, winding between fields and wooded banks, is renowned for its delicious oysters.
The Véloroute is the ideal playground for a family ride, without worrying too much about cars, to discover the magnificent landscapes of North Finistère and its Abers!
