Hiking between Etretat and the lighthouse of Antifer

A hike to discover the coast and the cliffs between Etretat and the Antifer lighthouse.

Etretat is located in Normandy, 2 hours from Paris. It is a picturesque town where many artists stayed (Maupassant, Monet, Maurice Leblanc...) The walk begins from the centre of Etretat and then runs along the cliffs to the lighthouse to Antifer. After that you can go back on the same path to return to Etretat. The ride is fairly easy although there are fairly steep slopes. The course takes place at the top of the cliffs with magnificent points of view on the sea and cliffs.
