Tour length: 56 km (35 miles).


Stopping-off places: The coast
has many crperies where you can
enjoy a pancake and local cider.
There is also the Auberge de Vieux
Puits in Lampaul-Plouarzel (see
p242). Alternatively, the oyster
farms and bakeries in Lannilis will
provide all you need for a picnic
on one of the small islands along
the abers (but take care not to
become marooned by rising tides).
For a night stop, there is the Htel
de la Baie des Anges, 350 Route
des Anges, Aber Wrach village.
