The GR34, also known as “Sentier des Douaniers” (Custom Officers’ Path), is an 1800 kilometers waymarket trail from Mont Saint-Michel to Saint-Nazaire. Taking in dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches, dancing wildflowers, coves, and dunes, there is plenty to admire along the way.
A popular hiking trail
After the creation of the National Customs Authority in 1791, the Breton Customs Officers' Path was created with the objective of monitoring the coasts and fighting smuggling. It runs along almost the entire coast of the Brittany region, and stretches over 1800 kilometers.
Gradually abandoned during the first half of the 20th century, several sections were cleared in the 1960s. Today’s hikers on the GR34 appreciate the extraordinary beauty of the area, and landscape diversity.
