Pont Farcy, now bypassed from the main road, is a modestly built village but one with a long and proud history: it has its origins in Gallo-Roman times and it has long been an important inland port (some 100km from the coast) and a crossing place over the Vire – notably for those making pilgrimages to Mont St Michel.

Itinerary

You temporarily leave the Vire greenway at Pont Farcy, to take small shared roads into the heart of the Normandy hills.  Caution: there are some tricky sections (gradients of over 15%) to reach the views - which do make the detour worthwhile: there are splendid vistas of the hedged farmland of Normandy and the Souleuvre viaduct in particular. Do take care on the descents.

Not to be missed

Souleuvre Viaduct: there is a very popular bungee jumping facility here, as well as a 400m Tyrolean zip-line and a giant swing.

Le viaduc de la Souleuvre

Le viaduc de la Souleuvre
 
For the more adventurous, Le viaduc de la Souleuvre is hugely popular for bungee jumping. Designed by Gustav Eiffel, the former railway viaduct is over 350m in length and up to 60m high. Damaged and repaired during the war, it was dynamited in 1970: now only its five granite pillars stand aloof across the valley
