Traversée de la Baie du Mont St Michel

 

 

In 2017, I wished to train and become one of only two certified guides of the bay able to guide in the Abbey.


We offer you a unique experience that consists of a commented crossing of the bay and a guided tour of the Abbey of the Mont-Saint-Michel with a single guide.


Together, we will safely live an unforgettable experience by playing around the quicksand, taking up the challenge of crossing the rivers.
Crossing the bay is an activity accessible to all, thousands of people do it every summer.


During the crossing, we will study together the geological, topographical and climatic evolution of this unique place in the world, by its size, its exposure to the currents and its tides, among the most important in the world.
