Hired 3 canoes for 3 adults and 4 children. Having done this last year I recommend you take their minibus up river and canoe back to their base (Vitrac) where your car is parked. This means that if kids get wet/jump in you can change...More

Canoeing on the Dordogne is great fun. Departing from Vitrac you pass several places of interest as well as stunning scenery and an abundance of wildlife. The people at Canoes Loisirs are helpful and speak English to explain the route and procedures.

Took the trip from Vitrac to Beynac. Renting the canoe was easy and the people were very friendly and accommodating. The trip itself is amazing. We stopped in a town for lunch but packing a picnic works too.
