I never tire of a trip on the beatiful l'Odet and each time I learn something new about the Chateau and wildlife along the banks as the tour guides become ever more proficient and adventurous in their English commentary. An excellent way, subject to tides, of visiting Quimper while leaving the car behind. Always take something warm to wear because the river can become quite cold.

Good trip, the islands are beautiful like a mini French version of the Galapagos.

Lovely beaches with thousands of sea shells washed up, we didnt pick any up, theres only one rule to follow on a remote place like this, dont take anything away and dont leave anything behind.
You can go on a tour in the boat of the islands which wasnt really worth it, better to take the option of spending a few hrs on the main island. Btw if the weather isnt that good in Benodet, theres a good chance it will be warmer in the Glenan so worth a try if Benodet is a bit cloudy.

(ps they do a river trip as well we didnt go on)

Was an Ok trip but you would need to see a bank manager before buying the tickets €44 for an adult and €20 per child rip off.

We took the 09.15 boat to Quimper (booked in advance) from Benodet. The trip up the river Odet is very interesting and, providing the weather is fine, very beautiful, with a good number of sights e.g. chateaux, en route. There is plenty of both outdoor and indoor seating on the boats and there is commentary in both French and English. Because of the tides, the boats go at different times each day so you must get a timetable to plan your journey. We combined this trip with a (pre-booked) lunch in Quimper + a visit to the museum.
