Foret de Huelgoat, Huelgoat

#3 of 18 in Nature in Brittany
Forest Nature / Park
The softwood forest, Foret de Huelgoat has diverse tree species, including silver fir, Scots pine, and fir Nordmann. The hurricane that devastated the forest in 1987 also allowed the introduction of the new American oak species. You can walk the path to Le Camp d'Artus in the forest, a Celtic camp dating to the first century BCE that attracted the Irish due to the silver mine. Lastly, visit La Roche Tremblante, the humongous 137-ton boulder.

  • Well marked paths n And not too crowded. Well worth a visit
  • Extraordinary place, if rather hard to find due to indifferent signposting. A jumble of huge, ancient granite boulders in beautiful woodland with the stream at the bottom of the valley rushing through. Be sure to visit the devil's cave (grotte de diable) down the stairs - it's a scramble, but worth it. (Tempted to knock off a star because it's always raining when we visit!)
