canoeing on the Dordogne: Canoeing on the Dordogne River
Your canoe slowly drifts passed medieval villages and towns dotted along the Dordogne river, seeing quiet sections of the river that can not be seen in any other way. Perfectly suitable for (older) children as well and the canoes only cost a few euros to hire.
You can picnic on the banks of the Dordogne, perhaps in a place suitable for paddling and swimming.
The canoes are hired from one of several hire companies that operate along the Dordogne, along with life-jackets and a large plastic tub to keep your picnic and camera dry. The canoe companies drive you upstream in a minibus and you canoe back downstream, or you canoe downstream from the start point and a minibus is waiting to bring you back. Either way, you only ever canoe with the flow of the river! You can also choose the length of your trip - generally half a day or a whole day
