The Bocage Normand Area

[ Cycle routes Veloscenic, Paris <> Mont-St-Michel ]
  • 66 km

From the historic town of Domfront perched on its rock, this section of La Véloscénie to the Mont St-Michel follows a greenway along a disused railway line going through the typical quiet countryside of the Bocage Normand. This area is reputed for its apple and pear orchards and its gastronomy. You'll pass the pretty villages of Mortain and Ducey. From Domfront, an alternative route along another greenway takes you to Flers via the charming Varenne Valley.
