About us

Don't be fooled by the lofty silhouette of the Folgoët basilica, the magnificent starting point for this hike. Give it 5 minutes, and it'll take you on a tour of its hidden treasures.

Why choose this hike over any other?
1) Easy access. You park your car in the town center, which is bustling with shops, and then gradually descend into quiet, welcoming countryside - a pleasant contrast.

2) Combining hiking and heritage discovery

3) After 3 hours of walking, it's time for a little drink and a crêpe, come on! Take a break at Pod A Laezh ("the milk pots" in Breton), a bar-restaurant at the foot of the basilica.
