Activity holidays in Normandy
From walking to cycling to grass skiing
Apart from riding (see Riding Holidays, this section), Normandy is an excellent place to mix activity with leisure. Tourist offices have all the information, but in advance of your holiday contact the Comité Départmental du Tourisme de l’Orne, www.ornetourisme.com, for information on anything from 4 × 4 off-road trails to grass skiing. Walkers can hike all the way from Caen to Alencon on the GR36. For cyclists, there are several permanent circular cycleways.
