Nature activities, a unique architectural heritage, waymarked trails for walkers, horse riders and cyclists all make it worth spending time to explore here.
The Vallée du Léguer is particularly unspoilt, and will delight all nature-lovers. It now holds the European ‘Wild Rivers’ label, and is classified as a Natura 2000 site in recognition of its remarkable natural heritage.
The Station VTT du Léguer
A favourite destination for walkers, horse riders and cyclists, the marked trails lead you along the river banks, through woodland and forest. The Station VTT du Léguer mountain-biking centre offers 200 kilometres of signposted trails for riders of all levels.
Classed as a ‘river for migratory fish’, a favourite spot for fly-fishing, the Léguer is one of the most famous rivers in France for fishing salmonids, and is renowned for the fighting spirit of its wild fish. The ‘Pêche Passion’ marked path at Kernansquillec will give you a taste of the ideal conditions for fly-fishing.
