The Ile aux Pies, star of the Nantes-Brest Canal

Here, the river Oust flows majestically between granite cliffs providing an amazing spectacle ! This famous water gap (the geographical term) is a remarkable landmark of inland Brittany.
It has a string of islets named after birds : Ile aux Pies (magpies), Ile-aux-Geais (jays), Ile-aux-Corbeaux (crows)… 
The rocky cliffs on both sides of the valley are famous rock-climbing venues, where qualified instructors from Escapades Verticales and the Fédé accompany intrepid climbers on secure ascents, so why not have a go ! In addition, the Défis de l’Oust starting from Redon, are a marvellous opportunity for family fun. 
Between the gentle banks and steep cliffs you can fish for carp and gudgeon, paddle among water lilies in a canoe with Apach’Bihan, enjoy a fascinating nature discovery walk with Emmanuel on his Walk with songs and stories through the Ile aux Pies, (a Brittany Experience), and eat home-made crêpes…
