Discover Brittany from a different perspective with the rental of a license-free riverboat.

Embark on an exotic vacation on the Blavet. This coastal river, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean at Lorient, was canalized in 1825, under Napoleon. The aim was to connect the town of Pontivy, which was then named Napoléonville, to the Nantes to Brest canal. The Blavet canal is certainly the least known canal in Brittany, but its charms are numerous: preserved nature, charming villages, magical fountains, not to mention its astonishing religious buildings, such as the Saint-Gildas chapel carved into the rock. Rent a riverboat in Hennebont and let yourself be carried away by the beauty and traditions of Brittany.
