Visiting Mont Saint-Michel with your dog
Only guide or assistance dogs, or small dogs carried in a suitable bag or basket are permitted on the shuttles. Our other four-legged friends are not permitted in the shuttles. For greater peace of mind, visitors can entrust their animal to the kennels at the Tourist Information Centre before starting their tour. It is also possible to reach the Mount by foot (40 minutes walk).
On the Mount, dogs kept on a leash are permitted in the village, but will not be allowed in the parish church or in the abbey (except guide or assistance dogs). In the private museums, restaurants and bay crossings, dogs are generally permitted but it is recommended that you consult the establishment in question directly.
