36 circular walks with schematic maps and full directions (and suggestions for 45 more...)
This handy book includes walks of varying lengths and types all over Finistere, the westernmost department of Brittany. An essentially rural area, the region has sea on three sides, many estuaries, rivers and lakes, a swathe of deeply wooded terrain and the jagged peaks of the Monts d’Arrée in the sparsely populated interior. Information for individual walks includes directions, points of interest and factual detail of terrain and gradients. Colour photographs illustrate many of the walks. A further reference section gives contact details and practical information to help visitors enjoy activities such as golf, cycling, riding, watersports and fishing.
We have just returned from another superb holiday in Finistere, and I am writing to say what an invaluable help your book has been. Wehave now used it for 4 holidays and have completed about 15 walks. You took us to places where we would not otherwise have gone, and the walk descriptions are excellent ...
An excellent book; I would recommend it to anyone contemplating a walking holiday in this lovely part of the world. Many thanks.
