France: Reserve Naturelle des Sept Iles

Since we are staying for a week in Bretagne, France and we have enough time to do side trips. We decided to finally try the very known boat trip that is given in the region. We first planned when to go since you have to or at least have a ticket reservation for the said trip.

It was a cold, sunny and somehow raining hail day. But we still decided to go on top of the boat so we can get a full view of the islands that we are going to visit. The trip consists of visiting the 7 islands around Brittany. The only thing that made me a bit annoyed  that the tour was spoken in French, so we have no idea on what the tour guide was talking about. The tour guide did not even bother that there are lots of non-French speakers during the tour, but we grasp on what we can somehow understand by making connection on what he says on the surroundings.

As we sailed our way to the 7 islands, we got hailed. I mean hail fell on us and just to include, I got a very funny video of us during the event.

Our 7 islands trip experience

Moving forward, one of the island is full of birds. There are lots of birds that are just chilling in the island. It stinks, it smells like birds! haha. But looking at the birds that are freely flying and resting made the trip worthy.

After visiting the other islands, we stopped in an island for half an hour and let us enjoy the serenity of the place. We got a very nice view of the whole sea with its islands.


The tour is good in other ways. It wasn’t the best sailing trip due to raining hail, but the experience it gives to be able to tour one of France’ island is enough to say that it is worth the trip. It is nice that they protected the bird island. It gives them a chance to fly freely and live.
