Brittany & the Channel Islands
Jul 01, 2018

We are planning this tour for July 2018

Brittany, the region occupying the rugged western tip of France, is surrounded on three sides by a long and varied coastline. There are rugged cliffs dotted with lighthouses, wide estuaries, islands and picturesque harbors with strong maritime traditions. Combine this area with the Channel Islands lying off the coast of Normandy and you have the makings for a once in a lifetime Society lighthouse tour. Beginning with a climb of Le Grand Phare on Île d'Yeu, our tour will follow the coastline around the peninsula until we reach the walled city of St. Malo. Along the way we will visit and climb numerous mainland and island lighthouses including Phare du Goulphar, Grand Phare d'Eckmühl, Île de Sein, Phare de Saint Mathieu and Île Vierge, the tallest traditional lighthouse in the world (271 feet). Taking a break from lighthouses we will view Les Aiguilles (needles) de Port Coton made famous in paintings by Monet and walk the streets of the stunning and sacred village of Locronan. Upon reaching St. Malo, we will board a ferry to take us to the Channel Island where we will absorb the history and culture of Jersey and Guernsey as well as visit more lighthouses before returning to our starting point, the city of Nantes. All in all; this is going to be a très bien lighthouse trip to remember.
