3 days of biking along tranquil greenways through the heart of Brittany

Want to get away and try out travelling by bike? Ride with peace of mind along this route that mostly follows greenways, along the Nantes-Brest Canal, the Rigole d’Hilvern channel, and the former Central Brittany railway. You’ll pass through the green and blue landscapes of inland Brittany: wooded countryside, canal locks, a medieval city, and the great Lake Guerlédan.

😍 This route, 96% of which follows greenways along canal towpaths and a former railway, offers an unforgettable experience to share with family or friends.
