Foret de Huelgoat, Huelgoat

#2 of 63 in Nature in Brittany
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. Plan my Huelgoat trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Very pretty place, we get carried away by the place and legends. Tour of about an hour (a tour advised by the tourist office) with a two-year-old child sometimes carried but easily accessible. Don't hesitate if you're around

  • Hello, the place is magical. Simply beautiful, the gigantic rocks in different formations in combination with the stream and the forest. You hear the sound of the stream, but you don't see it. The moss-covered trees. A poem! We were lucky and it was raining, so there were only a few tourists on site. Don't want to imagine how the spell expires if it should be crowded. Please do not visit with flip-flops. It's remarkable how people with flip-flops try to climb grottoes and rocks. Solid footwear is mandatory if you want to visit La Grotte du Diable, among others. A commemorative plaque on the way and a small monument uphill, also commemorates and commemorates the brave French resistance fighters who were murdered there by the Nazis in July 1944.
