Pontivy – Saint-Gonnery (21 km)
Between Nantes and Brest, the canal flows through the valleys of several rivers, including the Oust. From Pontivy to Josselin, gear up for a nature ride for a dozen or so miles past the locks. A countryside scene awaits with grey herons and moorhens to keep you company! Read up on all the remarkable trees along your path thanks to the interpretation panels. In St-Gonnery, take a relaxing pit stop at the spacious Louarnig Park, with traditional Breton games. For a thrilling treetop adventure, pop into the Accrobrancherie opposite, where the zip line hovers above the canal!
