The 1,700km (70-90 day) coastal GR34 follows the coastline between Camaret-sur-Mer and Audierne.
While you could encounter the law of diminishing returns if you take on too much of it, you can find a lovely stretch of it near most places around the coast.
If you are constructing a holiday with the GR34 at its heart, choose your stretches carefully.
Some particularly fine stretches include:
From Cancale to St Malo in the north.
On the Côte de Granit Rose in the north.
On the Emerald Coast in the north.
On the Crozon Peninsula and the Cap Sizun in the west.
From Bénodet to Pont-Aven in the south-west.
From Penvins to Arz in the gulf of Morbihan.
