Things to do when camping in Morbihan
Morbihan and camping holidays are a marriage made in heaven. The land and seascapes of the department set the scene for brilliant adventures in nature and the ancient heritage cultivates a region filled with wonder and discovery.
One of the most famous sites in all of Brittany, the ancient standing stones of Carnac date from 4000BC and offer visitors the chance to unravel a megalithic mystery. Start your discovery at the Maison des Mégalithes before taking a tour of the fields where the granite stones emerge from the ground. The Museum of Prehistory invites visitors to unearth yet more artefacts of the region, while the nearby beach of Carnac Plage offers a great place to spend a day by the sea.
Truly memorable days on the coast are the mark of a visit to the Quiberon peninsula, where rugged cliffs, sweeping beaches and quaint fishing villages define the landscape.

The wild coast of the peninsula provides the ideal place for an invigorating walks past secluded beaches, hidden coves and blissful bays.

The island of Île de Groix, which can be reached by ferry from Lorient, is well known for its lovely beaches and cycling routes. Bring your bicycle with you and explore the moorlands and ancient sites. Although the seascapes are the highlight of the department, a trip to the Lanvaux moorlands deep in the heart of Morbihan rewards hikers with a stunning place to appreciate woodlands, flora and fauna.
