Looking for places where you can go walking, riding or cycling in the open air as a family? Morbihan has kilometres of paths and trails in green settings to offer you. Discover the heart of Brittany and its exceptional natural environment along the towpaths that have been constructed in the region over the years.
The Nantes-Brest canal, running from east to west, from Redon to Pontivy, irrigating the land of Morbihan via the river Oust, is a true work of art. This itinerary, part of the Morbihan section of the EuroVelo 1 cycling road (Velodyssey), offers one hundred and seventeen kilometres of paths and trails for the safe use of walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Far away from the noise of engines, there is just the sound of lapping water to echo the rhythm of your steps and lead you from lock to lock, via overflow and weirs. Here we have children gleefully waving to the barges; over there is a place where one simply has to pause to pet a horse; then a little further on, there is an opportunity to stop and feed the ducks! As for the scenery, you simply need to open your eyes and look around to contemplate verdant valleys and foamed of green. Take a deep breath – you are out in the countryside!
