Nature and Heritage, Patrimoine, Highlight
2 h 03 min
The Vélomaritime route leaves Normandy's Marvel behind, taking you via minor roads across salt-meadows. Make the most of the last glimpses you're afforded across to the Mont Saint-Michel set in its great bay before reaching the Sélune Estuary, your gateway to the traditional bocage normand landscapes, consisting of hedge-divided fields. A lovely greenway leads you gently to the centre of the well-flowered village of Ducey.
