Owning a holiday home nearby, we have been canoeing with friends and family many times on the Dordogne. We have tried a number of different canoe hire companies but believe that Canoe Roquegeoffre offer the the best service. One of the advantages is that they take you upstream by bus, leaving your car in the ample car park at the base at St Vincent-de-Cosse. This leaves you free to return to the base downstream at your own pace, without the worry of having to meet a deadline of getting back to be collected by a bus if you start your trip from a base upstream.
The base itself is well situated, close to a riverside cafe and swimming beach.
If you prefer a more peaceful trip (as the river does get very busy in the summer), try canoeing in October. You probably wouldn't want to fall in, as the water is cold at this time of the year, but the river is truly beautiful, quiet, free of tourists and the wildlife is abundant. And although many of the other canoe companies have shut up shop for the winter, Canoe Roquegeoffre are still open for business at the end of October - in fact they are open year round.
