Embark on an original cruise from Rohan in Brittany

As well as being home to Les Canalous’ water­way base, the town of Rohan is also tes­ti­mo­ny to the impor­tance of the Rohan fam­i­ly in the region’s his­to­ry. Lose your­self in the streets of the town and dis­cov­er the cas­tle ruins before embark­ing on your licence-free rental boat. Take the time to stock up on sup­plies by vis­it­ing Rohan’s mar­ket, set up in the old grain hall. Whether you leave for the week­end or treat your­self to two weeks away, your cruise in Brit­tany will meet all your crew mem­bers’ expec­ta­tions. Sports enthu­si­asts will appre­ci­ate the numer­ous cycle paths for long ATB rides, as well as the tow­paths along the banks of the Brest-Nantes Canal or the riv­er Oust, allow­ing them to fol­low the sooth­ing rhythm of your houseboat.

Breton mysteries to explore and discover during your cruise

Every stop on your water­way cruise from Rohan will be an oppor­tu­ni­ty to lose your­self in the small streets of Brittany’s his­toric towns and vil­lages. Mar­vel at the region’s char­ac­ter­is­tic half-tim­bered hous­es and stroll among the stalls of the many tra­di­tion­al mar­kets. One of the attrac­tions of water­way tourism is the way you can take time to immerse your­self in the tra­di­tions of the regions you trav­el through. In Brit­tany, it will also give you the chance to pur­chase some tra­di­tion­al galettes and oth­er Bre­ton crêpes to enjoy local cui­sine aboard, or per­haps opt for the lob­ster and oth­er seafood for which the region is also famous. Don’t miss a trip to La Roche Bernard, one of Brittany’s most pic­turesque and emblem­at­ic set­tle­ments. The mari­na sit­u­at­ed at its heart means that you can leave your house­boat and get lost in the labyrinth of streets in this for­ti­fied city. You should also find the time to stroll down the Prom­e­nade du Ruicard, along­side the Old Quar­ter of La Roche Bernard.
