    • The Dordogne is a peaceful river particularly adapted to the practice of "Canoë Détente" (canoeing relaxation) with family or friends. Above all, the preserved heritage of the Périgord makes canoeing an original way to discover the castles and villages, some of which are classified among the "plus beau villages de France" (most beautiful villages in France).

      Practical side
      You leave your car in our shaded one-hectare car park. Then, a bus takes you up the river. Three circuits are possible :
      • Canoe departure from Carsac : 28km (4h to 5h)
      • Canoe departure from Roque Gageac : 14km (2h à 3h)
      • Canoe departure from Vézac : 7km (1h à 2h)

      All our prices include : Bus trip, Canoes with FILE, life jackets, paddles, toilets, showers and waterproof containers FREE !

      During your descent, you can make stops for picnics and swimming. Once back at the port of Enveaux, you can pick up your vehicle or you can enjoy the facilities provided free of charge: picnic area, children's games, shower...

      NB. Canoë Détente is open all year round.

    Incredibly friendly staff, very accommodating and flexible. You will have to pay in cash, as there’s no pin machine. Great canoes and taxi service to the upstream drop off points are swift. The 28km tour is absolutely brilliant, very dramatic scenery at the start, gorgeous views on the riverbanks and castles along the way. Definitely one of the best ways to explore the Dordogne river. The 28 km tour including picnicks and stops along the way for ice cream, drinks and shopping takes about 5-6 hours, most of which are easy paddling, no dangerous waters in sight, great experience for everyone.

    Great experience, a real must do! 14 kilometres takes you including some stops about 3 a 4 hours. My opinion is that this is more than enough 😅

    Love the fact you can camp for free as a campervan in a great walnut orchard. Had to wait about an hour from our set of time as they held off departing for a group to arrive but we were not told why we were waiting just left to get more frustrated. Took the shine off the experience which is a shame as they are very friendly and helpful. Third time using and would use again.

    This was the best kayaking experience I've ever had. It has only been so far, but that should not let you think that I am not inherently qualified to write this review. After all, I am the customer...
