Perfect day out on gentle river, kayaking with family 13 and 10 year old. You can take double or single kayaks and both work great. We'd never really done anything like this but the Dordogne is perfect for absolute beginners. The minimum length is 9km...More

We had an awesome day. We rented the kayaks from Canoë Safaraid. Very good boats, fully equipped with paddles, life jackets and storage boxes for your belongings that should stay dry. Probably we will do another tour next summer!

The owner/operator and his staff are very personable and professional. The canoe ride was enjoyable. We would go again if ever in the area; but next time we would make a full day of it to see more parts of the river.
