Unguided Excursion to Mont Saint Michel from Paris

5/5 (24 reviews)
  • Description

Set off for a day trip that allows you to design your own itinerary, between the sea and the sky! Visit one of France's most iconic sights, the stunning UNESCO World Heritage listed island of Mont Saint Michel and its bay. Discover the magnificent medieval abbey at the island's summit, a historical masterpiece. Take advantage of the opportunity to experience the magic of the island and the breath-taking sight of the Bay of Mont Saint Michel, at the mercy of the tides.

Leave our agency in Central Paris at 7:15 a.m. for an exceptional day at Mont Saint Michel. Relax on the journey by luxury air-conditioned coach from Paris and take in the beautiful green landscapes of the Normandy countryside as you reach Mont Saint Michel at around 12 noon. 

Visit the base of the island of Mont Saint Michel on foot; a unique fortified rocky outcrop, it dates back to the Middle Ages and is surrounded by a vast bay with one of the biggest tides in Europe. Climb right up to the top of the island to the captivating Benedictine abbey, which dates from the 8th Century. A wonderful example of Gothic architecture on three floors, it is dedicated to the Archangel Michael. Visit the cloister, the imposing refectory, and the abbey's charming garden, looking out to sea.

Make the most of your time at the abbey with a walk along the ramparts and walls; the landscape will take your breath away as you breathe in the sea air. The sand stretches as far as the eye can see at low tide and the island is cut off by the sea at high tide. You may also decide to spend time visiting Mont Saint Michel's museums, indulging in some souvenir shopping, watching the hustle-and-bustle of village life, or sampling local crêpes until 4:30 p.m. Return to Paris scheduled for approximately 9:15 p.m.

Nice to explore the town on my own

Excellent tour. We got the unguided tour so we had plenty of free time to explore mont st. Michel. Four hours is plenty enough time.

Excellente!The coach was very comfortable. The journey was smooth and of course Mont St Michel was just amazing. A tip for adventurous millennials, remember to bring an extra pair of shoes to walk on the wet sands. Trust me that’s the only way you can get insta worthy pics.

Wanted to do unguided and reclaim the hour from the guided tour lunch. The reader pens and map they gave were perfect.
