Love the dordogne, such clear water, 1-2.5 hours is perfect for a family canoe, can stop off at small beachlike riverbanks, keep to right of river when getting to the last bridge as you can miss your exit point if on other side of river.

We were a family of 3 adults and three children 6, 9 & 10. We have been on canoeing trips before when visiting France but this was our first time on this part of the Dordogne river. We got to the booking hut at 10am and there was a queue, a lot of people had booked their slots in advance.... More

We arrived early in the day so didn't book. We opted for the 2-3hr canoe from Siorac down the Dordogne back to Limeuil. A fun trip in the minibus to our destination then off we went. No real instructions just pointed downstream for the family that started rowing the wrong way! Generally very shallow; at times too much - once... More

I had a great time paddling down from Siorac - enjoying the views, the lovely temperature and occasional swim. The kids loved it too, though there were a couple of people in our group of 12 who thought a shorter run would have been enough. Horses for courses.

We chose a relatively short paddle from siorac to limeuil. Bit disappointed that we weren't given any basic instructions as we aren't seasoned canoeists. At Siorac we first had to paddle through loads of weeds (hard work!). And quickly learnt that we weren't great at.steering! The journey was lovely and the water largely quite shallow. Only challenge was when one... More

Canoeing is an essential part of any Dordogne holiday . We chose to go upstream on the Vesere . As a family We chose the 14k route and really enjoyed it. They take you upstream by mini bus and you row and drift back in about 2-3 hours . We took longer as we stopped on a pebble beach for... More

Easy reservation by phone (in English). Lots of options from 1 to 8.5 hours on either the dordogne or vezere. A good option for a canoe or kayak trip while in the area. They have free parking right next to the ticket booth. Give yourselves an extra hour or two on top of the advertised 'timings' to account for the... More

Excellent value for a kayaking experience. They drop you off up river at your chosen point and with little effort you saunter along a beautiful river taking in herons, kingfisher, dragonflies and spectacular scenery. The water is clean and gorgeous for a swim should you wish to stop on the way for a riverside picnic. We paid 11 euros for... More

Had a great day on the river with lots of fun with my wife and the kids (ages 7 and 9). The river is very calm and the kids loved jumping off the canoes in the river. Registration and drop-off were very quick so we were on the river in no time. You cannot miss the return point at limeuil... More

This trip is easily arranged. I had a leaflet from the internet before we left England and we booked by phone. We arrived in Baynac for the 10am bus which takes you to the start of the trip. We were soon kitted out with life jackets and paddles and we began our 15Km voyage down stream. The river is grade... More
