What do you need to do canoeing
To be able to swim and wear a life jacket in obligatory areas.
Is the Dordogne an easy river to canoe on ?
Classified in the first category for its lower part, only the part from Argentat to Beaulieu offers second category difficulty.
Do you need to have canoed before to canoe on the Dordogne ?
Not necessarily. If you have never done it, ask for a short training course before starting.
Can you bring children in the canoe ?
The golden rule is to know how to swim. Nevertheless, we make exceptions at the end of July and August, when the water is lower and the river is not dangerous. We have life jackets for children aged 5 years old. No babies on board.
Can we take children Adventure canoeing ?
With teenagers it’s a great experience, but try and rent a craft adapted to them, it is not more expensive and everyone will have fun !
Can we go on a Canoeing & Camping Adventure without booking accommodation ?
Even in high season, the campsites along the DORDOGNE always warmly welcome canoes. For hotels, it’s better to book in advance.
