1. Hot air balloon ride

Discover the beautifully wild and jagged Emerald Coast from the air in a hot air balloon with the Ballons d'Emeraude. Take off from the banks of the River Rance and float through the air above pretty medieval Dinan, the stunning walled town of St Malo and the Belle Epoque beauty of Dinard as you drift over the estuary. It's a peaceful trip to explore Brittany from another view that you'll never forget.

2. Horse riding on the beach

Always wanted to gallop on horseback along a beach at sunset? Go horse riding in Brittany and you'll find 2,600km of Equibreizh bridleways all over the region, from the rugged coast to mystical forests and windswept moors. Take a quiet ride for an afternoon along the beach or head inland for a trekking trip of several days to encounter the pastoral beauty of rural Brittany.

3. Explore elegant Dinard

Enjoy a seaside stroll along the Promenade du Clair de Lune in the spring sunshine, or go in the evening for a different ambience when it is all lit up, in the fashionable resort of Dinard. Famed for its elegance and glamour, Dinard has many wonderful cafés and restaurants with terraces so why not treat yourselves to a hot chocolate or crêpes with salted butter as you admire the wonderful views of the beach?

4. Try a Michelin star restaurant

Splash out on fine dining at one of Brittany's 41 restaurants that belong to the Tables et Saveurs de Bretagne. All these restaurants hold either a Michelin star or three toques from the Gault Millau guide so spectacular food, service and surroundings is guaranteed. With a coastline rich in seafood delights, fans of le fruits de la mer will find themselves well-catered for. And, of course, there are fantastic French wines to accompany them.

5. Sightseeing plane trip

Stay close to Roscoff and Morlaix and you'll find the Aeroclub Morlaix offers some lovely sightseeing trips. You'll go up in a small civilian aircraft that makes for intimate surroundings to your enchanting Breton adventure. Choose from a flight over Carantec and the Château du Taureau that sits out in the Bay of Morlaix, the charming Ile de Batz or the captivating beaches of Locquirec.
