Logo Bretagne

The sea dances with every step you take along the GR®34. Between the rocks, along the beaches or creeks, in the harbours, it is central when you walk the Sentier des Douaniers. Put on your hiking boots and set off on the adventure of France's favourite GR in 2018.

#1 The GR®34, by the sea

A flight of cormorants mingling with that of seagulls, a small fisherman's boat hauling in its net, a couple shaving the rocks on their paddle, a jogger training for his next trail... Following the GR®34 is far from monotonous, and even less so at Destination Quimperlé-Les Rias! The sea is never far away.

Merrien est une ria en Finistère Sud et une étape du GR34.
