The Nantes to Brest Canal - Tourism in the Morbihan

Connecting Nantes with Brest, this waterway, 364 kilometres in length and built in the first half of the 19th century, was at one time used solely for the transportation of goods. With its 238 locks, today the Nantes to Brest Canal is an important centre for river-based tourism, delighting people who enjoy boat trips. Thanks to the old towpaths which cross the peaceful countryside of inland Brittany, you can also have lovely outings on foot or bicycle. Pleasant places to stop, such as Blain in Loire-Atlantique, Redon in Ille-et-Vilaine, Rohan and Pontivy in Morbihan, and Châteauneuf-du-Faou in Finistère, as well as charming little characterful towns like Malestroit and Josselin in Morbihan, are dotted along the way, to the great delight of architectural heritage enthusiasts!
