Discover the islands of Ouessant, Molène and Sein, in the Mer d'Iroise. Cycling and walking are the best ways to appreciate nature’s rugged beauty here.
The Compagnie Maritime Penn Ar Bed provides ferry services to the islands of Ouessant, Molène and Sein every day, all year. If you visit Ouessant, it is worth staying the weekend, as 1 day is not enough to see the island, especially on foot. The vegetation is cropped close by the sheep, which roam freely over the island. Lighthouses and shores of white pebbles complete this bewitching landscape, fashioned by the sea. Make the most of this timeless natural oasis, far from cars and the din of the city. The Molène archipelago, where walking is the best way to get around, is even more rugged. A way-marked trail leads around the island, where you will discover small fields marked out by dry-stone walls. As for Sein, an island that was once submerged in the ocean, it is really out of this world, a unique place, all alone behind the reefs and the haze of sea-spray.
