A scenic adventure
A cycle route from Paris to Mont Saint-Michel
The Véloscénie is a cycle route that links two emblematic French monuments: Notre-Dame-de-Paris and Mont Saint-Michel. Covering 450 kilometres, the route travels through four regions and three nature parks. You’ll see lots of treasures of French heritage along the way: châteaux such as Versailles, the cathedral in Chartres, picturesque villages, the thermal baths in Bagnoles de l’Orne, and much more.
The Véloscénie follows a succession of bike tracks, greenways, forest trails and signposted roads. From the Chevreuse valley to the Norman countryside, via the Perche region, you’ll pedal through some stunning landscapes and enjoy a sense of complete freedom as you reconnect with nature. You can follow this cycle route from start to finish or opt for individual sections, as you prefer.
