Chemins de la Baie du Mont Saint-Michel, Genets

#1 of 15 in Trails in Normandy
There are many ways to get to the famed island and its historic abbey--which has been named a World Heritage Site. Many like the romantic idea of hiking Chemins de la Baie du Mont Saint-Michel. With a guide, this can be a scenic way to experience the natural beauty of the area. It may also be very moving to travel to the abbey the way pilgrims have for several centuries. However, you must be very careful due to the bay's mud flats and quicksand. It's easy to get stuck, and if the tide comes in you can drown. Make your Genets itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • Having left with a family from St Leonard with a guide, this barefoot crossing remains an original experience. The exceptional décor, the explanations of the guide and the "stinging" of the tides (a safe guide above all) give a very special atmosphere. We had already made the visit of Mont St Michel so a nice addition. Bottom line: We couldn't go around the Mont for lack of time, too bad!

  • A very pleasant walk of 2:30 around the Mont with a guide (Alexandre) who adapts well to his audience, regardless of nationality. To be done with family or friends, this discovery is suitable for all and all ages. In our group, the youngest were 5 years old and the oldest was 80 years old!
