impressive, how these stones seem to have fallen from the sky... Take good shoes and walk along the river or in the forest, there are a lot of little trails. But be careful, you get lost easily. They should put more indications about how long a walk takes. We came across many people who were as lost as we were. Don't miss the "moving stone" (pierre qui tremble).

I wasn't enthused about going here but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. The small town is set on a beautiful lake with the forest next to the town at the far end of the lake. There is a path through the forest that is next to the town and it is worth a little hike to see the large rock formations next to the stream.

A beautiful forest, with amazing geological features, and a really magical atmosphere. Pick up a map at the tourist info and allow a couple of hours to see everything - the caves, pools, boulders, the trembling rock and (our personal favourite) the mushroom rock. A lovely day out.

You cannot visit this part of Brittany without taking in this forest at some point. It is beautiful to say the least with leafy glades, some huge tumble-down rocks at various heights and angles, grotto areas, and waterfalls. It is a photographer's dream! There are damsel flies looking for all the world like dancing fairies over the streams. There are a range of bird species to look out for as well.

On a hot day some cool can be found beneath the trees. There are picnic benches and a number of creperies and restaurants both in the village of Huelgoat and a couple in the forest itself. Some of the routes would not be suitable unless you are reasonably fit and have good footwear, but it is excellent walking countryside.

Went here with a friend who had a meeting to attend.
While he was at the meeting I had a chance to take a wander around the town of Huelgoat, and it is stunning. The lake is a spectacular place and there are several bars and cafes facing onto it.
This is a place well worth visiting if you appreciate the tranquility and beauty of the Breton landscape
