The Nantes-Brest Canal crosses the Pays de Josselin from east to west and is a wonderful way to discover the area, on either land or water. An engineering masterpiece built in the early 19th century to promote business and trade, it was superseded by road and rail has been transformed into a leisure facility, ideal for walking and boating. Nowadays it is popular with both locals and tourists.
A peaceful and relaxing environment, it is open for cruising or canoeing free of charge from April to October. The towpath, once the reserve of bargees and their horses, is open all year to walkers, cyclists and equestrians.
