The varied landscape of Western Loire is reflected in the range and style of walks in this region - from scented pine forests and orchards to long stretches of sandy beach. Both the GR3 and GR36 trails cross Western Loire. Follow the GR3 for instance from La Baule where the River Loire meets the sea. Whilst walking in Western Loire you may well come across some of the region's many fairytale chateaux that adorn the landscape. Enjoy discovering Western Loire's cities on foot - Nantes and Le Mans for example are worthy of exploration.
