The Nantes-Brest Canal by bike © S. Bourcier - CRT Bretagne

The Nantes-Brest canal



Vertebral column of the architectural and natural heritage of the region, the canal is an excursion over time and Brittany culture. Spread over 365 km of this long ribbon of water, no less than 236 locks punctuate the silent passage of light craft, barges and other motor boats

Tamed by treasures of technical ingenuity, water meanders in the most beautiful Brittany valleys, from Erdre to Aulne via the Vilaine, Oust and Blavet.

Why don't you put the bikes and go for a boat ride? These secured and equipped lanes are exclusively reserved for you, as well as pedestrians and riders. Far from the noise of the engines, only the lapping of the water paces your steps and guides you from locks to spillways ... Breathe, enjoy!
