All the Nantes Brest Canal is very beautiful and easy to ride by bike, but near Josselin is specially beautiful because of the imponent silouette of the castle. I reccomend without any doubt to do some km up or down stream (it is almost flat),...More

Took a wander along this from St Sansom to Rohan, and again around Gouarec. It's absolutely lovely, well maintained and well-used enough that it's peaceful without feeling too isolated.

We drove to Josselin which is a destination in itself, very beautiful, amazing chateau right on the canal. There is virtually no flat land in Josselin except alongside the canal. Fold up bikes (which we bought at Leclerc supermarket) were unloaded and with coffee and...More

We have visited the canal regularly over the last 20 years, and on a couple of occasions hired bicycles in order to cycle along the canal. This is a most enjoyable experience, and other than hiring a boat, one of the best ways to see...More

We hired four bikes from Josselin at a very reasonable cost of 24 Euros for two hours. The bikes were well maintained. The tow path is wide and even, easy terrain for even young legs, and the scenery beautiful - even the canal locks are...More

We took a hotel barge (Libje) and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. This canal rivals the more famour Canal du Midi (whcih we enjoyed 2 years ag). this is actually prettier for most of the way, with prettier locks and towns en-route.

The canal tow path in the Rohan area is very well maintained and is wheelchair friendly. The canal banks were full of wild flowers with yellow iris being prolific. Very peaceful walk from St Sampson to Bojus and Gueltas on a quiet Sunday morning was...More
