Hiking on the GR

Long distance hiking trails

With three Grande Randonnée routes crossing the territory, the Terroir de Caux is a land of hiking par excellence! Follow the GR®21 along the Côte d’Albâtre, where Quiberville-sur-Mer is one of the most popular stops with its beach and fish market, follow the GR®210 in the footsteps of the Chasse-Marées in the Scie valley, or discover the Saâne valley along the GR®212. For those who like short hikes, our loops will also allow you to discover these long hike circuits over a few kilometers.

The GR®21

GR de la Côte

The GR® 21, GR of the coast, will lead you from Tréport to Le Havre through woods, beaches and cliffs. And excuse me, it has been elected as the favorite GR of the French in 2020, which is all the more reason to walk it for at least a few kilometers. Halfway between Dieppe and Saint-Valéry-en-Caux, our seaside resort of Quiberville-sur-Mer will be an ideal stopover on your journey! With its pebble beach, it has one of the largest stretches of sand at low tide on the Alabaster Coast, perfect for a swim after a good day of walking. You can also taste the good products of the sea from the fish market or the restaurants of the beach? You will be able to try water sports or electric scooters during the season! As you continue your journey, you will discover breathtaking landscapes from our cliffs.

The GR®210

GR du Chasse-Marée

In Brittany, the “chasse-marées” were horse-drawn carriages whose mission was to supply Rouen and Paris with fresh fish overnight from Dieppe, the fishing port closest to the capital. In order to carry out this race against time, the carriages, pulled by four Boulonnais horses, left at sunset in order to deliver at dawn to Les Halles via the well-named Parisian street of Faubourg-Poissonnière. The route of the GR® 210 follows as closely as possible this “Route du Poisson” which declined in the 19th century following the arrival of the railroad. This route can be walked between three or four days depending on the level of the hikers who take it. Longueville-sur-Scie and Auffay-Val-de-Scie will be choice stopover villages along this journey as they once were for the fishmongers!

The GR® 212

Along the Saâne and the Vienne

The GR®212, and its variants A and B, will allow you to walk along the Saâne and its tributary, the Vienne, depending on the variant taken.
