At Huelgoat (high woodland in Breton), marvel at the spectacular blockfield of huge granite boulders along the Rivière d’Argent which runs through the woods from the lake to Le Gouffre. This is a land of Legends, whose mysterious place names refer to King Arthur, the Devil and the Virgin Mary. Don’t miss the Chaos du Moulin, the Rivière d'Argent, the Grotte du Diable, Le Gouffre or the Camp d'Artus. The churches and churchyards, sculpted altarpieces and pretty chapels in the area are well worth a visit as are the delightful country villages of Berrien, Bolazec, Botmeur, Brasparts, Huelgoat and Le Feuillée.
Enjoy walking, horse riding, swimming, sailing and plant discovery trails at Lac Saint Michel, a huge playground for lovers of the great outdoors. The Monts d’Arrée is also a great place for nature and environmental enthusiasts and for fishermen too. Discover local legends and traditions at a story-telling evening and round off the experience with Kig Ha Farz, a culinary speciality dish from the heart of Finistere (a sort of meat and dumpling hot pot).
« My favourite part of the Monts d’Arrée is the unspoilt, mysterious, tranquil landscape and its magnificent sunsets. Going back to nature at its best. »
Cycling or driving along quiet roads and lanes, make the most of the scenery, alone except for druids and korrigans (Breton pixies)!
