With three canoes for six people from 74 to 24 we had a blast on the river. The Dordogne is wide and not to deep between Vitrac and Beynac 25kms. We swam in the river and stopped at la Roque Gaceau for ice creams and a look at the honey coloured stone of this stunning medieval village. We canoed past... More

Used this company due to the previous reviews as there are lots of companies offering canoeing along the river. Loisirs were well organised and spoke good English. We canoed from Vitrac to Castlenaud which took 2-3hours. Being novices and in high temperatures this was long enough and gave us a great experience. Don't expect to be alone though, the river...

We went canoeing as a family of 5 on Wednesday 3rd August 2016 from Vitrac to Beynac (a 3-hour/16km trip), canoeing one way to Beynac and then getting the bus back to our car at Vitrac. I was the most reluctant to try this, but even as a novice it was an interesting thing to do, and the whole thing... More

We canoed from Vitrac to Beynac in a 4 person canoe (2 adults and 2 children age 9 & 12). This company is really well organised : the staff were really helpful and informative, they gave us a guide with information on local history and things to look out for on the river and we were met at Beynac by...

We hired 4 canoes and were driven up stream to canoe back down to base. This was the shortest route of about 5km and took an hour and half for the slowest. We had a range of ages from 7 upwards and decided if we got wet we wanted to finish at the canoe base where we had parked the... More

great day out, they had a partnership with the Eurocamp we stayed at. So they arranged for us to follow them in our car to Beynac where we parked they then took us by minibus to Vitrac and set us off in our canoes! Loads to see and places to stop and swim, would thoroughly recommend😀😀

This is our second time canoeing with Canoes Loisirs. Fantastic day out for all, the river is gentle and participants don't need to be experienced. It's a great way to see the area surrounding the river and there are some beautiful sights. Canoes Loisirs are a well organised company with good quality canoes. Would highly recommend!

We contacted Canoes Loisirs by email to ask if they would collect us from our hotel in Sarlat as we had no transport to get to the Dordogne . After a day or so they responded confirming it was not a problem and from that moment on they looked after us superbly. We were collected at exactly the right time... More
