Swiss Normandy Walking Break
Short break from £249 to a week from £649
The rugged landscape of Swiss Normandy is only a short hop over the Channel and offers a huge network of walking trails including a section of the Mont St Michel Pilgrim's Walk. Choose from a 3 day short break to a week long holiday.
WALKING WITH RARA
This walking holiday starts and finishes from the front door of an idyllic farmhouse in the heart of rugged Swiss Normandy.
As the river Orne winds its way through the area's unspoilt countryside, it creates deep valleys and immense cliffs in the granite landscape. As a result there is a wide variety of stunning tracks and trails, ranging from meandering riverside paths to steep gorge hikes. Amongst the 1000km of walking routes in the immediate area are sections of the Mont St Michel Pilgrim's Walk and the GR 36, a long-distance walking route stretching from the Normandy coast to the Pyrenees and part of the Grande Randonnée network in France.
As you explore this area where nature still has the upper hand, you'll be tempted to dip your toes in the river and marvel at the wildlife around you. The incredible overhanging cliffs at Roche d'Oetre are just one of the region's natural beauty spots where you will be absorbed by panoramic views, vast forests and isolated picnic spots.
Get an insight into rural France and Normandy culture as you walk through quaint villages and come across farms where you can drop in and taste locally produced cheese, cider and calvados. Returning home to a sizzling BBQ as the sun is setting, you can use the last of your energy to reflect with friends on the day's adventure.
RARA HOME-FROM-HOME SERVICE
Staying in a bright and welcoming farmhouse in rural northern France, you might find like many of our previous guests, that you just don't want to leave!
You will be met with a warm and friendly atmosphere, where we look to meet your needs before you even know you have them. Using the farmhouse as a base allows you to really settle in. After a satisfying day of walking arrive home pleasantly aching, find a spot for your boots and rucksack, put your feet up with an aperitif and nibbles, and dream about the delicious home-cooked three-course evening meal being cooked up, just for you.
Meals are made with locally sourced produce and designed with your preferences in mind. With our informal but attentive hosting you can just sit back and share tales of the day's walk before retiring to your room, closing the shutters and getting into a comfy bed.
RocknRoll Adventures' service will leave you confident that all the practicalities of your holiday have been entrusted to safe hands. Your booking will be managed by a dedicated member of the team to ensure you have one point of contact at RocknRoll Adventures, and so receive the best possible service.
