Tourism

One island, 100km of coastline, 3 valleys and a city

Everyone will find something to do in Brittany !


In the heart of South Britanny, where the land and the coast make one, the Lorient region offers a great variety of landscapes  for you to explore. On this land of sailors, on the ocean, nautical activities are easy to find. On the coast, everyone will find happiness with both white sand beaches to build sand castle and relax but also rocky beaches to go seashells picking. There are many outdoor heavens in britanny: the small “Mer de Gâvres”, a small sea surrounded by natural dunes, and the Isle of Groix (45 minutes from Lorient), which has the charm of the old islands with small villages and walking paths in a well preserved nature.

 

If you prefer to go inland, the Blavet and Scorff valleys will enable you to chose from a wide choice of outdoor activities. Tours and hiking trails will take you back in time. Hennebont, Pont-Scorff and Port Louis are vestige of another era: citadels, old towns and craftmen villages will make all the history enthusiasts happy.  

 

Lorient, the main city on the coast, has 60 000 inhabitants. It’s well known all around the world for its “Festival Interceltique”, a music festival that gathers Celtic groups and musicians from everywhere.

You can also stroll in the new part of town and go shopping in the many different “boutiques”.
