A dream for cyclists and walkers

Eight major trails crisscross the region, taking in cities of character and preserved natural spaces. Safe and comfortable, these bicycle routes run along canal and river towpaths, old railway tracks and small quiet roads along the coast. On foot, discovering the natural treasures of Brittany is easy, with over 12,000 km of marked footpaths. The GR® 34 – or “Customs Path” – wends its way over 1,800 km along the entire Breton coastline, with around 100 itineraries that afford breathtaking sea views.

The Nantes – Brest canal: the enchantment of Brittany’s canals between land and sea.

Along the water’s edge, the canal reveals the Breton hinterland, where heritage and nature are closely intertwined. Dug by convicts, the Nantes – Brest canal (360 km long with 236 locks), offers walkers spectacular views of the preserved natural environment. 

Why not get on board a comfortable house boat, available for hire (no permit required), and enjoy the scenery to the rhythm of locks and lapping water?
