Spring activities around Douarnenez

Route du Sable Festival from Tregarvan to Chateaulin on the Aulne River

It is always fun to discover the region through community events centred around an activity. For eleven years now the community of Rosnoën on the Aulne river, just 43km by road (on the way toward Brest) from Douarnenez hosts a small boat festival in June retracing the path of sand barges bringing up sand to Chateaulin.

This year the Route du Sable will take place on the 13th & 14th of June 2015 and they have mapped out the itnerary with great viewpoints along the way. Or if you plan ahead you can get on as a passenger on some larger traditional wooden boats starting in Port de Tinduff and Brest.
