The Bacside of Le Mont Saint-Michel

A nice break to do a little walking. A guide for answers to your questions. Fascinating view of the sea side of the mont. Great experience of the moving sands of the tidal flat.
Do it!

it was great fun
Sep 2018 • Couples
Our guide, I'm so sorry I forget his name, was great. He was cautious and careful and explained and demonstrated how to get out of quick sand. It involves a lot of walking but the terrain is flat and it does involve walking through water up to your knee with a currant in places. But it was not difficult . I would recommend bare feet or comfortable water shoes and wear a backpack so your arms are free to hold hands on mud and while crossing the water flow. We had great fun. Highly recommend. Don't go out there without a guide! He is there for your safety as they know the tides and currants and places where there is quick sand.

Great trip, great view on MSM, helpful guide!
Jul 2016 • Family
The tour is very interesting, and you get to see Mont Saint-Michel from a great perspective! The round is about 3h, and Stephane tells lots of interesting informations. The walk itself is not very challenging, although you should take short trousers even if the weather is not so good - you will be going through lots of sandy-wet places that is easier to go barefoot and without wet clothes :) The guide is very nice and helpful, I definitely recommend the trip!

I escaped quicksand today, and it was so much fun!
May 2016 • Solo
I took the 6 km hike with Stephane to Mont Tombelaine, and I'm so glad I did. The hike was a sacred, beautiful, memorable experience at a very magical place. I enjoyed Stephane's balance of playfulness and caution, and I felt very safe and well-guided by him. So much so that when he suggested I get myself buried thigh deep in quicksand to practice escaping it, just for fun, I did (well, lower lower thigh, but my knees were under sand, and I could feel myself sinking fast). He talked me through my escape, and it was so fun and exciting to experience this. One of the sweetest, most magical, most wondrous days today at Le Mont San-Michel. And he was very kind to translate things into English for me, though everyone else on our tour spoke French. And also, on my tour there were two sweet older couples who managed this hike well, and my friend has taken her young daughter. Not easy, but definitely manageable and well worth the effort.

If I ever return with more time, I would do one of his longer walks, from Normandie, or even a camping overnight, when the tides allow. I 100% recommend Stephane as a guide--he's just a fun person to spend an afternoon with, and he's been doing this for many many years--and I'm so glad I didn't miss out on this experience!

Fun hike with quicksand experience
May 2016 • Family
I had a great time on a 6 km hike with my nephews (ages 12 & 14) and mother (age 70). The quicksand was so fun to experience! Stephane conducted the tour in both French and English. The views were great of Mont Saint Michel as we circled the nearby Mont Tombelaine. We started with wearing water shoes but quickly had to go barefooted as our shoes were pulled off by the mud at the beginning of the hike-we all ended up taking off our shoes, but none of us were sore from doing so as we expected we might be (I hardly ever walk barefooted!). The weather was perfect for a hike, and we dried quickly in the warm wind. The rivers varied in depth; the highest came to the bottom of our shorts. I felt safe on the hike; I would never have done it without a guide. Stephane was very particular about our safety and checked all the best routes to take before crossing any rivers, and he stayed with my mother in the rivers to make sure she crossed safely. It was definitely a highlight of our trip. He even gave the kids time at the end of the hike to experience the quicksand for 10 minutes, letting them sink down quite a ways before they pulled themselves out. Such fun!

Castle on a Mountain Island off of the Coast of France, REALLY!?
Feb 2013 • Friends
DAY 1 of France begins in the western college town of Rennes, the capital city of this region.

Starting from the tourism office in the center, surrounded by such old and quaint architecture, french sites/sounds/smells, our appetite for adventure is that of grumbling tummies. The office gives great directions to Rennes' Main Railway/Coach Station (fr.= Gare du Rennes). There we will catch the Keolis-Emeraude coach (13 euro/each way) to the coastal Island of Le Mont Saint-Michele (36km). MORE TO COME YA'LL. tut suite!
