The End of the World: Finistère by Drone

Thibault Poriel

Contributor and pilot Thibault Poriel created this amazing drone video of the most extreme western part of France.  At the tip of the peninsula of Brittany in northwestern France is a small department called Finistere.  Its name roughly translates to "End of the World".  When you see what the department looks like on a map of France, one can understand why.  The video features bird's eye views of the spectacular rock formations of Finistere, which is also home to the famous seafaring town of Brest.

The French region of Brittany takes its name from the Breton Peninsula, a land mass which juts into the North Atlantic from the "mainland" and covers over 34k square km (just over 13k square mi.) - roughly 10% larger than the territory of Belgium.  In this drone video, you'll see some of the amazing sights of this distinctive region.  It begins with the Bay of Morlaix in Finistère on the north side of the peninsula, and ends at Gulf of Morbihan in the Morbihan Department, on the south side.

Top contributor Amaury Descours flew a drone over a cape of Brittany in northwestern France to create this amazing video.  Cape Frehel is a promontory that lies on the northern side of the Breton Peninsula, in the Côtes-d'Armor department.   This is a remote slice of Brittany; the peninsula itself is uninhabited but for two adjacent lighthouses, both of which can be seen in the video.  The shorter lighthouse was built in the 17th century while the taller one dates to the mid-20th century.

This fantastic drone video by Lewieque begins with a flyover of the great Mont-St. Michel monastery-fortress on a tidal island in Normandy, but the star of this particular show is a bit further south - the walled city of St. Malo, the former "pirates' den" which sits at the mouth of the La Rance River in northern Brittany.  The video also features some great views of the late 17th century National Fortress which sits on a tidal island just offshore from St. Malo, as well as the nearby town of Cancale.

The video opens with an amazing shot of the Plougastel Bridge (also known as the Albert-Louppe Bridge), which crosses the Elorn River near Brest, the port city at the western end of the Breton Peninsula. From there you will be taken over a number of other spots on the coast and interior of this fascinating land, which is one of the most culturally distinctive regions of France.

A Journey to Saint-Malo

In this short drone video by poulain35, you'll get an amazing aerial view of the storied city of Saint-Malo in western France.  It's a walled port town on the northern shore of the Breton Peninsula.  St. Malo is closely associated with the seamier side of Brittany's seafaring tradition: piracy.  The protective barrier created by the town's fortifications permitted a pirate community to thrive here until well into the 19th century.  The city was heavily damaged during the World War II Allied invasion of France in 1944.

Given the close association between France's Brittany region and the sea, it's perhaps not surprising that it's the country's surfing capital.  The southern side of the Breton Ocean faces the open ocean, and while it's definitely wetsuit-only swim country, a thriving surfing scene has developed here.  In this drone video by Mattcoq, you'll get a bird's eye view of a surfing  session at Point de la Torche.  It's a small promontory near the western end of the peninsula, more or less due south of Brest.
