Three friends and I spent a delightful few hours on the rivers Dordogne and La Vezere. Taken by minibus with the canoes, oars, lifejackets and our dry tub to our launch point and promptly collected several hours later as arranged at our pick up point at Bac de Sors. On route we saw numerous herons, cormorants, kingfishers and a couple of large fish and a yellow wagtail. The water was low in a number of places meaning we had to get out and free ourselves but this all added to the fun! Didn’t meet anybody on the river until we approached Bac de Sors. The staff at canoeric were extremely helpful and thankfully spoke very good English which meant we could easily arrange the trip to our requirements and within the time we had available. Full marks for a very enjoyable experience. Thankyou.

Excellent day out. We booked this 2 days before. Hired 2 kayaks with 2 large wet tubs to keep our kit and picnic in. We are novices but we able to manage this. We took the 2 hour trip from LeBugue to Sors. The Vesaire river shallow but lots of rocks and we beached a couple of times. Wd managed the confluence of the 2 rivers. The Dordogne easier but deeper and some stronger current there. Staff very friendly at the booking hut. Bit chaotic picking up at minibus. Really glad we went for this. It was hard work but enjoyed it.

We hired a 4 man canoe as we're total novices! We booked on line the night before and this was necessary at this time of year. We turned up in Le Bugue which was really easy to find just behind the aquarium. Parking was easy too in the morning but looked alot busier when we returned in the afternoon. We were given lifejackets and oares, shown our canoe and told to row with the flow of the river to our pick up point at the allocated time to be returned by bus. The only thing I would say is that it would have been nice to have a little direction on how to navigate a canoe! Abit of trial and error and we sorted it but had a few "moments". The river though is very shallow and calm. We had to get put of the boat a couple of times to dislodge ourselves from the shallow areas! Overall a beautiful experience and one we're really pleased we did as a family.

Beautiful views along the calm and shallow in parts la Vezere river. Lovely and helpful staff - the lady even let me buy a baguette from her for our lunch. Our 3 kids loved this experience.

Having been canoeing on the Dordogne a couple of days previously we decided to look for a different experience. We chose CANOËric and they quickly got us prepped up and ready to go with lifejackets, canoes and paddles. They transferred us 15 km upstream. The river is very different to Dordogne as it is quieter, has fewer people on it and not many places to stop. In fact the only place to stop was a small temporary island in the middle of the river. We floated and paddled down the Vézère river to the CANOËric base itself and then drove home. 15km over three hours and about €17 each.
