Most of the canoe outfitters have shut down by mid-September. We did the 25 km trip from Chateau de Losse. It was spectacular. The best part of the scenery was actually near the start -- the chateaux overhanging the river are stunning. The river moves...More

We have canoed the Dordogne before but this year we were near the Vezere. We choose AVCK because they were being advertised by our campsite and what a good choice it was. We ended up having 2 canoe sessions and 2 paddle board sessions. None...More

No experience of other canoe trip suppliers in the area, but they would have to go some to beat this outfit. Organisation was slick and for us, one big plus - they take you upstream to wherever you are starting from and you have as...More

My husband and I have done a lot of canoeing on the dordogne and experienced a number of the canoeing companies on the river all of which have been fine/acceptable but we decided this holiday to canoe on the vezere- a tributary of the dordogne....More

There's not much to choose between the 100 canoe companies guess. So it's the little things that make one stand out from the other: AVCK is clean, well-run, shady, with ample parking. Plus boats come both with seat backs and a laminated map/guide book. We...More

Lazily paddling down the Vezere river is a dream. We started at St Leon and paddled down to Les Eyies approx 19 km, kids loved it, not as much to see as on the Dordogne but a lot less busy

Went on a gentle two hour trip with my Mum. We did the 2 hour trip from Tursac, just the right amount. Lots of interesting things to see as well as lots of wildlife. We saw 4 Kingfishers. Very peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
