You can make beautiful canoe trips in the vicinity of the campsite on 2 rivers: the Dordogne or the Vézère. Two very different rivers with different environments. The choice depends on your interest. At both rivers there is no strong flow, the ride is in calm water so without risk. You can book at the reception at the campsite (with a small discount). We work with reliable canoe companies. Take time to enjoy, take a picnic and of course swimwear! There are many places where there is almost no flow so where you can cool down in the water ! From 5 years!
