About us

A regionally unique site, Langazel is the oldest peat bog in Brittany.
During this walk, discover the preserved flora and fauna of Langazel, a protected natural area. You'll find many rare and protected plant species, including sundews, orchids and beautiful heathers. The fauna is also very rich: deer, squirrels, hen harriers, long-eared owls, a multitude of butterflies and other wetland insects.

Part of the circuit has been laid out as an interpretation trail, allowing you to discover the history of this unique site.

A few recommendations:
- In winter, boots are necessary. In summer, good shoes are recommended.
- Don't stray from the hiking trail.
- Don't pick flowers, and keep your dogs on a leash.

Step 1/3:

In the village of Trémaouézan, take a look at the church and its parish enclosure, part of the circuit of remarkable enclosures in Finistère. The hiking trail starts to the left of the local school.

Departure from the parish enclosure

The trail takes you past farms and charming hamlets to the heart of the Langazel wetlands, a landscape of meadows, moors and peat bogs. You'll pass through a pine forest, cross and follow the Aber-Wrac'h, then use the old railroad line that linked Landerneau to Brignogan and runs alongside former peat extraction pits.

Wooded trail

On a bed of wooden planks, discover the secrets of the Langazel moor and peat bog.
