We did the Vitrac to Beynac canoe trip and it was very scenic and pleasant. Unfortunately, it took us much longer than the 2.5 hours. We were told that once we passed the first bridge we would have gone half way. We passed it in...More

We did route #1 from Vitrac to Beynac, an easy downstream paddle of 15 km (about 10 miles) which leisurely takes about 2-1/2 hours, but longer duration if you make stops along the river bank. Unrushed awesome experience, combining nature and views of chateaus. A...More

The explanations on paddling for novices was clear; the canoe easy to manage, the river was a dream to transverse. Even the tiny rapids were not a problem. The villages on the river banks a dream to visit. All in all an entirely fantastic day.

A brilliant way to spend the day in Dordogne. The company was great in providing gear, helping us get in. Plus unlike the other companies it has a pull-out agreement with Beynac, so you can visit that stunning jewel of a castle when you are...More

We tried this company as our second canoeing trip on the Dordogne, the first being two years ago. It is easy to get confused by all the different companies doing canoe trips in the area. We liked this one because they had a midday trip...More

The minibus came to pick us up from the campsite we were staying at in Beynac, which was ideal. We decided to kayak for 22km, and were so glad we did. There was so much to see, and it wasn't such hard work as the...More

Great gear - our canoe came with seat backs and our child's oar was the perfect length. Very friendly and prompt service. They are tucked away just across the road from the Canoës-Loisirs outfit that is visible from the Vitrac bridge. We went from Vitrac...More
