Owner description: Rental canoe on the Dordogne River in Perigord, between Vitrac and Beynac.
Reviewed 12 June 2014

If you're in Dordogne, I'd highly suggest a canoe trip. One of the highlights of your vacation - so lovely and peaceful. We did the 9 KM Vitrac to Beynac trip. The staff was friendly and efficient, and logistics were great. This was also probably the best value for our money of any experience in France :)

Its a "must do", for the south of France... A great way to enjoy the scenery... If you are feeling energetic you can paddle.. If not you can float down the river in the canoe or in your life jacket. There are two, three and five hour excursions to choose from.. (They just drop you and your canoe off further up the river for the longer excursions). After you pass the third bridge.. It's about a hundred yards to your car.. Bring Champagne and sandwiches.

We did the trip from Carsac to Beynac (shuttle from Beynac) in September and really enjoyed it. If you are in the area, it is definitely worth doing. It was described to us as easy, but the wind picked up in the afternoon, so the paddling became a bit more difficult. Still, anyone who is somewhat fit can do it. We brought our own food for lunch, which turned out to be a good idea, because it wasn't obvious to us where we could get food along the way. The trip took about 4 hours with a 1/2 hour stop for lunch. Leave plenty of time because you don't want to rush this. The woman in the Beynac office who drove us to Carsac wasn't particularly friendly or gracious, but it didn't really matter. In September there were very few boats on the river. We were told that in the summer, there are hundreds every hour.

We stayed in Sarlat during our time in the Dordogne. I emailed ahead to Copeyre, before we left on the trip, to request a canoe be reserved for us on the Saturday we would be there. We put in at Vitrac (about 15 minutes from Sarlat, and has parking right there), and canoed down to Beynac. We stopped at la Roque, and Castelnaud along the way, as well as for lunch on the banks of the river. It rained for one hour during the trip, but we just stayed to the sides of the river and paddled underneath the overhanging trees. We started around 11 AM, and the pick up option we chose was at 4 PM. We should have asked for a later pick up time (I think there was one near 5, and at 6 as well....I got conflicting information on that), because we didn't have enough time to explore Beynac. The bus picked us up right at the spot we took the canoe out, and it was a quick 10 minute trip back to Vitrac to get our car. Even with the rain, the trip was fantastic! We hiked up to Castelnaud, and around la Roque.

The company picked us up at our hotel and explained everything to us in English. We were given life jackets and a plastic waterproof container to store stuff. The river has a light current that makes paddling very easy. Spent 4 hours on river, stopped for lunch mid way, and had a wonderful dinner at the end of the boat trip. Then were driven back to hotel. A wonderful experience!!!
