Kayak outing idea in the Gulf of Morbihan

Meeting with Hervelyne Guilloux of marine trails for the discovery of kayaking in the Gulf of Morbihan

""Sailing on the Gulf of Morbihan in autumn and even in winter, as long as the Nordet is weak, is really very pleasant. We are lucky to have an interesting playground in all seasons,"" explains Hervelyne Guilloux. Hervelyne is a host of eco-tourist walks in
sea kayaking "Marine trails". A former champion of the discipline, she has always had Brittany as her home base. Even if her journey has taken her to all the seas of the world, this native of Glénan has remained faithful to her roots and now shares her passion while raising awareness
practices that respect the marine environment!

Zigzagging between islands and islets

Going around Egg Island, we head towards Iluric Island, a private island where we could go beach... But regulations would prohibit us
to venture beyond an easement zone equivalent to one meter from the highest tide. We then leave it on the port side to reach the island
Ilur, an island of the Coastal Conservatory managed by the Gulf of Morbihan Regional Natural Park. Fourth island in the Gulf of Morbihan in terms of
of surface area, we can disembark there with a short mid-calf swim... Oddly the water is warmer here than at Pointe du Ruault! And frankly it works!

A regular visitor, Hervelyne shows us her secret corners to enjoy an incredible panorama over the entire gulf. We come across the team from the Regional Natural Park (PNR) looking for a lost sheep... Xavier Le Gallo, the new guardian of the small island comes easily to meet us and invites us to enter the heart of Ilur by taking the marked paths. The island enjoys great wealth both in terms of its biodiversity and its vernacular heritage. Walking along dry stone walls, we enter a small hamlet formerly inhabited by agricultural farmers. In the midst of restoration, the homes are lined with blackthorn trees, hawthorns, mulberries... We will have to return to the summer months: we imagine the thousand colors during flowering... but for now, how pleasant it is to stroll among the wild grasses and appreciate this special moment! This feeling of having the gulf to ourselves, in preview and in VIP mode!

Idea for a walk: artistic Saint-Gildas-de-Rhuys!

Nestled on one of the highest points of the Rhuys Peninsula, Saint-Gildas-de-Rhuys is a land of inspiration for those who tame it for a walk on the cliffs of the Grand Mont. It owes its wild character to the west winds which sweep its coasts and ruffle its gorse. And when the sun shows its rays, the Presqu'île offers its most beautiful beaches to amateurs.

The Grand Mont walk

On the move for a 2h15 walk. Departing from the center of St Gildas de Rhuys , head towards the village of Kercambre to join the famous coastal path: the GR®34 to Port aux Moines. This small port enclave, rehabilitated in 1965, was once a natural shelter used by the monks of the abbey. The coastal path leads to the heights of the Pointe du Grand Mont , a breathtaking panorama from the highest point of the Rhuys peninsula.

Walkers then admire a magnificent coastline, interspersed with coves and cliffs. The Bretons agreed on a word to define the elusive color of the ocean: glaz! Blue or green? Emerald at dawn, sapphire at midday, aquamarine at snack time, topaz at sunset, the cliffs form a setting where these precious lights are reflected. At the west end of Port aux Moines, a dolmen rests on 6 small stones, surrounded by a small stone wall. A cross, in memory of the missing sailors, stands on the route before reaching Port Maria, a rocky projection which helped protect boats from the swell... Walkers arrive at the Orientation Table of the Grand Mont which locates the bay offshore. of Quiberon and its renowned islands: Belle Ile en Mer, Houat and Hoëdic.

Discovering the town's Sunday morning market

After this invigorating walk, it is easy to reach the village via the Route du Grand Mont and the Rue des Vénètes to discover numerous artists: sculptors, visual artists, painters and photographers... Just walk through the doors of their galleries to embark on a creative journey. On Sunday mornings the town bustles to the rhythm of the weekly market, the opportunity to taste local products at the foot of the abbey church. A visit to this imposing building, perfectly rebuilt after the devastation caused by the Vikings, allows you to understand the history of the village, before leaving these picturesque places.

Megalithic discovery at the entrance to Arzon

At the entrance to Arzon, the Neolithic Tumulus of Tumiac, 15 meters high, stands out in the landscape. It has been classified as a historic monument since 1923. From here, walkers contemplate the panoramas of the entire Rhuys peninsula. It is also said that the place was used by Caesar to review his troops during the Battle of the Veneti, which earned it its usual name of ""Caesar's Mound"".

A stone's throw from the port of Crouesty, the megalithic site of Petit Mont overlooks the ocean and the Gulf of Morbihan. The Cairn du Petit Mont , an imposing monument over 6000 years old, is perched in an exceptional natural space.
