The Nantes - Saint-Nazaire Estuary by bike

What about cycling the 60 kilometres between Nantes and Saint-Nazaire? Take the opportunity to admire the permanent collection of works of art dotting the Loire estuary. A real open-air museum!

Discover the Nantes - Saint-Nazaire Estuary by bike

Get on your bike for a ride along the Loire Estuary. The route is family-friendly and accessible to all abilities. Along the way, you'll come across works of art with very different personalities.

What they have in common is that they all highlight the estuary. Here are just a few of them:
  • Le Serpent d'Océan at Saint-Brévin-Les-Pins: a 130m-long aluminium snake skeleton created by Chinese artist Huang Yong Ping. Depending on the tide, the work seems to emerge from the sea.
  • La Maison dans la Loire in Coueron: artist Jean-Luc Courcoult has designed a house that appears to be stranded in the marsh, like a mysterious shipwreck.
  • The rings on the Île de Nantes: 18 large rings that light up at nightfall, the brainchild of artists Daniel Buren and Patrick Bouchain.
