    The GR34 (aka The Brittany Coastal Path) takes you from Vitré (Ille-et-Vilaine) to Tour-du-Parc (Morbihan). Catching views of the archipelago of Les Sept-Iles (the Seven Islands) and walking the remarkable naturally formed twisting granite labyrinth are some of the highlights. The trail follows the coast the whole time so it’s a very easy walk.
