Route/Trail notes

A detailed description of the walk!

From the parking area you can walk along the causeway to Mont Saint-Michel or you may take the shuttle bus which shortens your journey by 2.8kms on the way out and the way back. It is at least worth walking on the way out as you are able to see Mont Saint-Michel grow closer on the horizon which are some of the best views of Mont Saint-Michel. Once you reach Mont Saint-Michel the length of your journey can again be changed depending on your desire to circle or partially circle the island by walking on the mud flats (the tide times may also dictate if this is possible). Once you have winded up through the village you will have to decide whether to pay to access the top of the mont and the abbey. 


Do you need any permits? What's the cost?

Have to pay to visit the abbey which resides on the top section of the mont as well as for parking and some of the toilets on the mont.
