Sporty or cultural – which Brittany waterway cruise will you choose ?
Once we’ve trained you to captain your rental boat at our Redon base, you’ll have complete freedom to choose your own itinerary. You’ll then be able to set off on the waters of the Vilaine, a typically Breton river, or opt for the soothing waters of the Nantes to Brest Canal.
Whichever route you choose, you’ll be able to embrace all the pleasures of waterway cruising in Brittany. The slow pace of your houseboat, the enjoyment of chatting with the fishermen or boaters you meet, the delight of going through the locks.… Every moment is unique, so savour it to the full.
Cycling will also feature on your agenda, with the opportunity to organise excursions by bike as you see fit, whether through the Breton bocage or following your boat along the towpaths.
Brittany, a land of legend to explore aboard your houseboat
Here in Brittany, there are a host of other attractions to discover, even more so than in other parts. You’ll enjoy the pleasant climate and the chance to make several stops to discover Breton villages, along with the region’s gastronomic specialities. It’s up to you to decide if you want to savour the famous Breton galettes or far breton on the deck of your houseboat or around a table in one of the many restaurants in the region.
Your cruise will also provide you with an opportunity to better understand the turbulent history of this province. Even before your departure, the abbey church of Saint Sauveur de Redon will set the tone. It’ll then be up to you to follow your desires by heading towards Nantes or Rennes. If you opt for the latter, a sure-fire recommendation for an original visit would be to get lost in the aisles of the city’s ecomuseum.
