The Lanrivain forest is located in the traditional Breton territory of the Fañch country, where dances, costumes, music and dialects tell the story of Brittany and its unique connection with nature.

In the heart of Brittany, in the Côte d'Armor, the villages of Lanrivain and Plougernevel overflow with an abundant woodland. Aim for the four remaining menhirs that bear witness to Neolithic remains (the menhirs of Guer an Moc'h, Leur Min, Kerlagadec and Kerbalénou), count two hundred steps, and you will be there. Look: the sound of the foliage is consistent with that of the many rivers. A soft alto is the murmur of the Golden, as it irrigates the fauna and flora; it's not uncommon to observe gold prospectors trying their luck. Here, it is more a question of green gold. Sitka spruces open up to the fresh air and establish themselves while structuring these acidic and particularly moist soils.
