The Nantes-Brest canal connects these two towns and passes through the valleys of several rivers, such as the Blavet and the Oust. Starting from Pontivy, set off for an easy 25 km ride. You’ll be amazed by the sight of 54 locks, one after another, over this short distance. This staircase of locks offers an idyllic setting for grey herons, moorhens and great crested grebes, for a guaranteed rural atmosphere! It’s also the opportunity to discover the remarkable trees on the Nantes-Brest canal. If you follow the interpretive trail, you can have fun identifying oak trees, maple trees and lindens.
