Beautiful scenery with views of chateau and pre-historic caves. A unique way to explore the Dordogne Valley. Suitable for groups or families. 15km paddle downstream, approximately 3 hours.

Explore the Dordogne Valley from the comfort of your own kayak. The sleepy current of the Dordogne River will usher even the laziest of paddlers downstream as you marvel at ancient caves and weathered chateau perched high on the ridge lines.

We hired from Vitrac (Copeyre Canoë), 15 minutes drive south of Sarlat and paddled 15 kilometres downstream to Beynac-et-Cazenac. Make the most of the ice-cream and cold drinks on offer at Beynac-et-Cazenac before being picked up and returned to your cars by the canoe hire company.
