Cruises from Lorient
Surrounded by the sea, Lorient offers a wide range of fresh sea food, especially mussels and oysters. One of the biggest attractions at Lorient is the German submarine base that remains here from WWII. The base was first extended by the French Navy and used for nuclear submarines. Later it became a tourist attraction, and you can now visit it as a museum that is home to a real French Navy submarine.
There is something for everyone in the area around Lorient including the Scorff and Blavet Valleys, picturesque countryside, traditional ports, villages and beaches.
