For some reason, I love slow moving rivers and canals. Walking and jogging along this one is especially enjoyable. The fairly frequent locks along the canal south of Josselin are quaint and decorated with flower boxes. An island in the Canal holds an old stone farmhouse: Beautiful. Unlike canals in, sy, Burgundy, there's not a lot of barge and boat... More

This summer, my husband and i did a cruise on the Nantes Brest Canal and it was fantastic. Other than a couple rainy days, the weather was good. There are some cute villages along the way, such as La Gacilly with lots of artists’ shops. Our boat, a Sheba (booked through h2olidays, who were very helpful !) was very comfortable... More

have spent a week in cruising from Redon to Rohan and back. Overall it was a nice time - very tranquil with good food and wine indeed. A bit pricey - we paid EUR 3k for the rent plus 500 for fuel, damage waiver and bicycles package (which I recommend) but this works for a team (we were 2 families... More

Really nice place to have a stroll whilst in Josselin, quiet and peaceful with some stunning views. Currently (June 2013) there are road works in the area but these didn't detract from the visit.

We decided to do this trip in the reverse direction to the directions in the book “The Nantes-Brest Canal” by Red Dog books. Starting in Chateaulin at lock 236. We did this in May 2013 over 7 days eventually leaving the Canal at lock number 13 due to being delayed by bad weather. We decided to take the overnight Ferry... More

We walked this route from a small village called Pomeleuc all the way to Josselin (approx. 1 hour) A very peaceful stroll and scenic views. We passed 2 different bars which also served food. Other than this toilet facilities were non existent. French locals were extremely friendly. Various animals along the way multiple benches to rest and admire the surroundings.... More

My partner and I stayed in the attractive old town of Josselin for a few days. We walked along the Canal (which is actually the River Oust here) in both directions. Although it was August it was very peaceful with a few other walkers and cyclists around. We enjoyed watching the occasional boat go by and stopped at the locks... More
