The Trieux Estuary

WHERE SALT AND FRESHWATER MEET - THE ESTUARY ENVIRONMENT

Ile de Bréhat, Loguivy-de-la-mer, Penhoat-Lancerf forset, Pontrieux, a walk along the Trieux estuary is a voyage of discovery.

After the mouth of the estuary with its maritime landscapes, the country changes along the steep banks: cliffs, pine forests, moors and bays where migratory birds  come to land.

As the river narrows, the vegetation becomes denser, the banks reveal the secret harbour of Lézardrieux, the forest of Penhoat-Lancerf and the Estuary House,   
Château de la Roche Jagu and  Pontrieux with its old washing houses.

A revelation of unsuspected riches in one of the finest estuaries in  Brittany
