The La Rance river and its valley
The Rance has its source at Collinée (about 40 minutes south-west of Dinan) and empties into the English Channel between Dinard and Saint-Malo.
Sometimes winding river, sometimes channeled, sometimes maritime river, the Rance offers a variety of landscapes which extend from north to south of the Dinan-Cap Fréhel destination. It is bordered by multiple locks (Léhon, Evran, Pont-Perrin, etc.) and numerous ports, providing so many places to stop for a bucolic and soothing break.
A valley with many faces
Sometimes rural, sometimes urban, sometimes wild, sometimes maritime, the Rance Valley is conducive to discovering the fauna and flora, boat trips (whether you are a passenger or driver), walks or bike rides on the towpath or even fishing…
It is also a green lung at the foot of the City of Art and History that is Dinan: a place where peace, calm and tranquility reign.
Live the Rance valley
Hikes along the valley will take you to unsuspected corners of beauty with breathtaking panoramas. Picnics on the banks of the Rance will be a source of relaxation and joyful moments with family or friends. Live the present moment and take the time to experience the nature that surrounds you.
Follow the valley and its river up or down it and see for yourself where it takes you. You will not be disappointed !
