We were traveling in France by train, so did not have a car.

We had a ball. The weather... More

We rented a canoe at Vitrac and paddled up to Beynac on a gloriously sunny day. The scenery is stunning and there's lots of wildlife on the river. The service was great with better canoes than we have rented at alternative canoe rentals are in the area. We were collected on time and driven back to our car. The guys... More

We took a canoe at 2.30 p.m. from Vitrac and chose to go to Beynac, I think that is 16 or 18 kilometers. You can certainly choose a shorter trip. We loved being on the river, so clear and beautiful, drifting by the castles, watching ducks. We had to paddle a bit to get to Beynac by 6 p.m., the... More

Very friendly greeting by english speaking member of staff. We were given a canister to put our belongings in (our rucksack fitted in this with our lunch in). There were several places to stop to eat and nice beaches. We saw loads of kingfishers and even managed to get close to one. The views were amazing. There were some gushy... More

My husband and I hired a canoe for a couple of hours and spent a wonderful afternoon making our way down the river from Vitrac to Castelnaud. It was our first time ever canoeing and it was very memorable. The views are fantastic, well worth the effort of careering a canoe down the Dordogne.

We did two canoe trips during our week's stay. The staff were fantastic, very helpful, English speaking, and gave advice as to which type of canoe/kayak was the most suitable (we were mixed ability from complete beginner to instructor level) along with a guide to the river with some of the sights to look out for as well as advice...

Picked up a canoe at Vitrac. We saw two peregrine, a woodpecker, thirteen kingfishers and a sanglier! Basic paddling skills and common sense are enough.

My boyfriend and I spent 2 1/2 hours canoeing down dordogne. Fantastic views and nice easy journey. Didn't feel tired at the end and the sites you see from the river are great. Beautiful place
