Waytypes of the stage
Leaving the Marais-Vernier, the Seine à Vélo cycle route follows minor roads with only light traffic up to Berville-sur-Mer, where a greenway leads you beside the Seine up to the mighty bridge, the Pont de Normandie.
Note the following significant slopes:
- Direction Paris – the sea: in the Marais-Vernier (2km at 5%) and Foulbec (1km at 8%, including one stretch <10%),
- Direction the sea - Paris: Saint Samson de la Roque (2km at 5%) and Conteville (0.8km at 6%).
Take care at the crossroads at Foulbec.
Set to open by 2024, a new greenway will link the Marais-Vernier to Berville-sur-Mer via a flat link, making the most of the existing greenway alongside the Seine, and crossing the Risle Estuary.

Berville-sur-Mer: An historic fishing port, Berville-sur-Mer is a charming village beside the Seine Estuary that has kept its traditional feel. Discover the boat, L'Annick, and the old sailing vessel, La Fleur des flots, recalling the port’s livelier past. Le Mont Courel Forest is classified as an ecologically sensitive area, given its remarkable biodiversity, especially with its heathland. From the esplanade, take in the magnificent view of two Seine bridges, the Pont de Normandie and Pont de Tancarville. There are lovely walks to enjoy beside the waters.
