A canoeing trip on the Dordogne is always a memorable experience. I've now visited several times and no trip is complete without a leisurely day on the river. It always seems to be well organised and a lot of fun.

Four people two canoes and the wonderful Dordogne. A beautiful and fun experience. You don't have to be fit, but it helps on the two hour trip from Vitrac Bridge to Beynac. A good company with good equipment and good service. Would highly recommend them.
