Armorique Regional Natural Park is a protected landscape in Brittany. It covers 425,000 acres, stretching inland from the Atlantic Ocean through sandy beaches, swamp lands, rivers and into hilly countryside and rural villages. Armorique provides a range of cultural places and natural heritage to visit, offering the complete spectrum of Breton life and landscapes.

The Monts d'Arrée are the oldest and highest hills in Brittany, though still only reach to around 1000 feet. The countryside here is wild and quiet with high open moorland and peat marshes. This mountainous area is great for walking, the rocky heather and gorse being home to a variety of wildlife to spot.

The Crozon Peninsular, in comparison, juts out into the Atlantic Ocean and is characterised by its gentle beaches and dramatic sea cliffs. A number of small picturesque villages such as Le Faou line the coastline and are great for exploring. Do be warned that many of the beaches are exposed to the ocean and so may be unsafe for swimming.

With its eclectic array of habitat, the park encompasses an impressively diverse range of wildlife, ecology and culture. There are coastal coves to explore, riverbanks with elusive inhabitants, scrubland and rocky terrain scattered with a variety of birdlife. Keep your eyes peeled because there is certainly lots to see!

Take a look at the Natural Park's official website here for more info.
