The river Rance and its valley…
The Rance flows from its source in Collinée (roughly 40 minutes south-west of Dinan) to its estuary in the English Channel, between Dinard and St. Malo.
Sometimes a winding river, other times a canal or maritime estuary, the Rance boasts a wealth of landscapes stretching from the north to the south of the Dinan-Cap Fréhel destination. It is punctuated by many locks (Léhon, Evran, Pont-Perrin, etc.) and numerous harbours, which all provide the perfect excuse for a relaxing break.
The many faces of the river Rance ands its valley
Alternating between rural, urban, wild and maritime landscapes, the Rance Valley is perfect for wildlife watching, boat trips (whether you are a passenger or at the helm), hiking and bike rides along the towpath, or even fishing.
It is also the greenbelt of Dinan, a Town of Art and History, where peace and quiet reign.
The Rance swells and widens as it reaches the sea and becomes an estuary.
