Walks, hikes and rides
Walking and cycling offer privileged access to trails as surprising as they are unforgettable. Strolling along the greenway or hiking trails, enjoying the view of unexpected mountains, flowing rivers, fountains and chapels, rocks eroded by time... it's a voyage of discovery at all times tinged with an incomparable sense of freedom!
Greenway (voie verte) No. 7 from Rosporden to Roscoff crosses the Roi Morvan country over 19 km between Gourin and Guiscriff. Reserved for non-motorised travel, you can, walk or bike at go at your own pace in complete safety. It's the ideal place for family walks, especially if you are coming with young cyclists not very experienced on two wheels. The Nantes-Brest canal can also be joined here, along which you can discover more of the beauty of Central Brittany.
Among the thirty three hiking trails on offer, there's definitely one for you! The distances, shorter or longer, are adapted to amateur legs as well as the most sporty. Take a beautiful trail along the river, across the moors, forests and pretty villages. A guidebook containing trails is for sale at the tourist office. Local hiking associations are numerous in the Roi Morvan. It is thanks to volunteers that the trails are kept and well-marked. Lovers of walking mustn't miss the hiking festival at Faouët every year in April which brings together more than 500 walkers!
Cyclists have five longer tours especially designed for then. Fans of two wheeler holidays can enjoy the safe cycle route that runs through our area the Pont Calleck forest, and up to the mysterious Black Mountains.
A canoe trip on lake Bel Air in Priziac offers a different look at the nature around you. At night time the scene is even more magical. The nautical leisure centre has the equipment you need for a day out on the water.
Whatever mode of transport you choose, you'll escape into a countryside something like an open-air museum - a completely unspoiled natural environment and a different type of tourism.
