We are a 50 and 60 something couple, so not exactly in our prime anymore! Although we have previously been canoeing, this was a superb, leisurly day ona beautiful stretch of river.
The canoe is booked according to the distance you intend to cover, we chose a double canoe from Cenac to Beynac - about 13km. There is no time limit, you can just let the current take you and spend all day if you want, as the company pick up every hour until 9pm at your end location.
As a guide it took us 3 hours but we took a picnic and stopped for a while en route.
The canoes are of a good standard and they provide a large waterproof container for cameras, picnics etc. My only gripe is that there is no backrest provided and our backs did ache a little after a while. To be fair, It is normal NOT to have a backrest but we did notice another compant that did provide canoes with backrests so if you have a back problem it may be worth shopping around.
Don't hesitate, it's a great day out - rated as the best day of our trip, and a great way to see some of the lovely riverside villages.
