On the way to Mont-Saint-Michel, France

In this captivating Instagram video, I take you to the mythical Mont Saint-Michel, escaping the traffic to embark on a thrilling and solitary adventure. Mont Saint-Michel is an iconic island located in Normandy, France, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its fascinating history and remarkable architecture.

Mont Saint-Michel has been a place of pilgrimage since the Middle Ages and is dedicated to the Archangel Saint Michael, considered the patron saint of paratroopers and soldiers. This link with Saint Michael adds a sacred dimension to the Mount, attracting visitors from all over the world.

During my exploration of the Mount, I was amazed by its majestic aspect, with its medieval buildings perched on top of a rocky hill, surrounded by the waters of the sea. The panoramic view from the top is breathtaking, and it is no wonder that so many people want to discover this architectural marvel.

To visit Mont Saint-Michel, several means of transport are available to you. A huge paying car park is located nearby, where you can park your car and take the free shuttles to reach the Mont. This option is convenient for visitors who want to get to the Mount quickly without having to walk a long distance.

However, for a more eco-responsible and immersive experience, you can also reach Mont Saint-Michel on foot, by bike, or by wheel (electric unicycle). The 2.5 km journey from the car park to the Mount offers a great opportunity to enjoy the surrounding landscapes and to feel connected to the history of this magnificent island.

During my own Mont Saint-Michel adventure, I decided to climb the hill behind the main entrance, which was an exhilarating experience, but unfortunately the belt on my electric skateboard gave way along the way. Luckily, I managed to get back to my car using only one engine. It reminded me of the importance of always being prepared for unexpected twists and turns when traveling on an electric skateboard.

In summary, Mont Saint-Michel is an essential destination for lovers of history, architecture and breathtaking landscapes. With different means of transport to get there, everyone can discover the magic of this unique place in their own way. Join me on this extraordinary adventure to Mont Saint-Michel and immerse yourself in the timeless history and beauty of this incredible island.
