  • In Brittany, Mother Nature can prove very surprising. Between Ploërmel and Vannes, explore a rare natural habitat: a vast peat-bog where you’ll find plants that usually only grow in the Far North! Enjoy a pleasant hike away in the depths of nature on this specially -designed trail.

    In the Sérent district, the Pinieux moors comprise 20 hectares of peat-bog. In this wet habitat, you’ll find plants that are rarely found in Brittany. Ever heard of the drosera, a succulent that eats insects, like the Venus fly-trap? Or the bog-myrtle which fills the air with its heady fragrance? Blooming with lots of flowers in spring and summer, the peat-bog is also home to butterflies, dragonflies, lizards and frogs. And you can learn more from the information panels, all along the 2 km interpretive trail, or from the audio-guides available from the Malestroit tourist office or the Information Point in Sérent. Throughout July and August, free guided tours are organised every Friday afternoon.
