We took a quick trip from Chateaunaud to Chateau des Milandes but would definitely fancy doing a longer stint! The river is stunning and easy to paddle. It was delightful to spend an afternoon on the river and considering the heat on the shore was...More

Great canoe trips on the Dordogne. Plenty of room to leave the car - you are then taken by bus to where you pick up the canoes, and paddle back along the river as fast or slow as you want. It's an easy trip; my...More
