Or have a go at tree-top climbing and zip lining. Children can also discover the world of sailing, sea shanties, marine birds, shellfish gathering, fishing knots or why not make a model boat.

Numerous festivals are organised throughout the season : apple festival, cherry festival, traditional festivals, Breton dances, firework displays, concerts, music festivals (Festidreuz, Interceltique, Bout du monde, Vieilles Charrues) etc.

A concert is organised every Wednesday in the summer, putting a different style of music in the spotlight. These free concerts are organised in different places (Place de Trégunc or Pointe de Trévignon, for example). Horse shows organised in Pont-Aven will plunge you into the world of gypsies. The firework display in Trévignon on 14 July is no doubt the star of the summer. It takes place off the coast so the fireworks dazzle the sky and reflect in the sea. Come along and watch the show from the dunes. Come along to the Festival de Cornouaille in Quimper at the end of July and watch Breton dances and listen to concerts and sea shanties. The « Filet Bleu » at the beginning of August is a fibrant festival with parades, traditional costumes, dance and music.
