We had a most convivial festive walk in the forest today. It was rainy when we set off but the amazing beauty of the surroundings made us oblivious to that - or maybe it was the generous portions of mulled wine consumed at L'Autre Rive (thank you, Jacqueline) which made the difference. Rain stopped for our return via the Mare aux sangliers (photo), up the Argent valley and past the Chaos, with Steve and Claude demonstrating how to make a very large rock tremble... But the greatest physical feat came from Dog of the Day, Nell. Thanks to everyone - that really was a fun walk, even without the great disappearing key mystery.
Join us for the usual Boxing Day stroll in Huelgoat today, starting at 2pm from Intermarché parking area. This ramble around the beautiful forest with a buy-your-own stop at a bar/café on the way is a free event, a chance to get outside and enjoy some very special scenery with nice people...
Thanks once to again to everyone for a very successful year of Brittany Walks, with a large majority of events covering new routes and historical sites. Devising different and interesting programmes involves a lot of work, but the great support from you all makes it very worthwhile. As a gesture of thanks, the Boxing Day walk in Huelgoat, which normally has a reduced tariff, will actually be FREE this year. See Programme for details.
BWs wishes you all a Happy Yule, Christmas and New Year.
Brittany Walks has been based in Brittany, France since 2004. The regular programme of walks ended in 2015, but there are still occasional guided visits to places of interest to discover the landscape and history of the region. English is the language for events. See www.brittanywalks.com (link below) for details. The Brittany Walks website is full of information about walking in Brittany.
