A British blockade convinced Napoleon I of the strategic benefits of unblocking the routes with work beginning in 1811. Napoleon III then inaugurated the canal in 1858, opening a route between the city of Nantes and the harbour town of Brest. Today, the towing horses have given way to fisherman, walkers, runners and of course those who love boating holidays! The trio of beautiful waterways (Canal de Nantes à Brest, River Erdre and River Vilaine) offer a number of different boating holiday itineraries that will give you the very best experience of everything that’s Brittany.
