Mont Saint Michel Day Trip from Paris

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Expand your horizons with a day trip to medieval Mont St Michel, one of France’s most iconic attractions. This magical UNESCO World Heritage island is a step out of the ordinary with its famous gothic abbey and legendary stories. You’ll arrive after a scenic drive from Paris through the landscapes of Normandy, with a guide to brush up on your history. There’ll be plenty of time to explore the island, admire the bay views and do a little shopping, with a delicious lunch included.
  • Guided, full-day tour from central Paris to Mont-St-Michel 
  • Picturesque drive through the Normandy countryside
  • Guided tour of historic abbey, free time in the village of Mont-St-Michel
  • Lunch on arrival at the island village and round-trip transportation
What to Expect
If you did not upgrade to include hotel pickup and drop-off, your day trip to Mont-St-Michel starts as you meet your coach in central Paris for the drive west to one of France's most popular destinations: the Normandy coast.
Arrive in Mont-St-Michel, a small and rocky island village, where you enjoy an included lunch and drink.
Afterwards, take a walking tour with your guide through the medieval streets and learn about the town’s 8th-century Benedictine Abbey and its past as pilgrimage destination in the Middle Ages. Hear the story of its founding by the bishop of Avranches who said he beheld a vision of Michael the Archangel, and admire the ramparts and rectory.
After the tour, enjoy free time to explore, shop, visit museums, and take in the ocean-side scenery before returning to your drop-off point in central Paris or at your hotel.

The sight of the abbey is stunning from a distance. Up close, it is still amazing. Lots of shops and restaurants on the lower levels. The climb to the top is medium to strenuous, but worth the view. Bathrooms are not plentiful, so stop when...More

It’s a long day but there are plenty of stops for food and to stretch. Def get the guided tour. And this is not something for someone with mobility issues there are 400 steps to get to the Abbey!!

The tour company is great. Everything is well organized and I would highly recommend doing a tour with them, but this is a long trip for a short visit. It’s a four hour bus ride with a stop at a truck stop along the way,...More

It looks like a Palace-state hovering on a planet inside a video game. Incredibly magical feeling we couldn’t help feel during our visit. And, it was a place that finally gained the attention of my teens.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The history, the views, and the whole ambiance are extraordinary. Important to know that it's a 4-hour trip to the site, but it is well worth it. The lunch wasn't that great but there are plenty of good places to...More

Unfortunately I think it might be difficult as there are many, many stairs and no lift access anywhere. The pace of the tour is pretty measured but you would have to be fit enough to handle the climb.

There was no mention of a toilet on the bus by the Tour Guide- we went before we left and there was a stop going and returning to use the bathroom and get snacks en route.

No, you can take a tour without the lunch and eat drink where-ever you want. There are lots of choices.
