The Pays Bigouden in South Finistère is a preserved region with many natural areas suitable for hiking. On the coastline, between fine sandy beaches and rocky points, you can take the famous GR 34, formerly known as the sentier des douaniers (customs officers' path), which runs along the coastline and offers magnificent maritime landscapes to hikers.
Numerous other footpaths criss-cross the Bigouden and Finistère countryside and allow you to discover the region from a different angle. The Tourist Offices offer guides which list these often little-known paths, between land and sea.
Cycling is also popular in South Finistère. The flat relief and the relatively low use of the secondary road network and paths make it a favourite destination for cycling and hiking. Several greenways are signposted and laid out for cyclists such as notably the greenway "La Littorale" from Penmarc'h to Ste Marine.
