    • CanoSphère, our eco-responsible canoe base, at the foot of the Bastide de Domme, offers you the most beautiful walks on the waters of the Dordogne.

      On the banks of the Dordogne river, in Cénac and Saint Julien, in the heart of the Périgord Noir, discover the CanoSphère space (canoe base and guinguette) during your stay in the Dordogne.


      Canoeing is a tradition in Périgord. To be convinced of this, you just need to discover the 1937 photos by Robert Doisneau presented at the old Carlux station (renamed Robert Doisneau station) as part of a permanent exhibition.


      CanoSphère is part of this history by offering walks as close as possible to the magnificent landscapes offered by the Dordogne river. Our base is ideally located at the foot of the Bastide de Domme , at the Cénac bridge. This is a perfect location because it is at the junction of the castle walk and our wild trail (a walk that reflects the spirit of our canoe base).

      Indeed, the castle walk will allow you to discover the castle of Beynac , the fortress of Castelnaud la Chapelle, the estate and castle of Fayrac , or even to see the gardens of Marqueyssac. Our departures are continuous between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day, but it is certain that by leaving in the morning, the day is yours! Along the water between contemplation of unique landscapes, discovery of majestic medieval buildings, punctuate your journey with a Périgord picnic and refreshing swims in the transparent waters of the Dordogne. The river offers many natural stops which are unforgettable moments, believe us!

      For the wild course, we have a single shuttle departure in the morning from the base. An itinerary to discover the preserved spaces of Périgord and the magic of the fauna of the Dordogne river with its discreet inhabitants ( otters, egrets, kingfishers, etc. ). Don't forget that the Dordogne is a unique biosphere reserve in Europe and we give you the keys to understanding its ecosystem!

      With the cliff route , a slightly shorter route, measuring 12 km, set off to discover the most beautiful landscapes of the valley! Superb cliffs await you, a unique meander ( the Cingle de Montfort ), picturesque villages, the Château de Montfort as well as exceptional fauna and flora.

      The cliff route as well as the wild route will definitely inspire you!

      CanoSphère is the first canoe base in the Dordogne committed to protecting biodiversity. Winner in 2019 and 2021 of the “Biosphere Reserve Prize” awarded by UNESCO and winner of the “Innovation and Tourism Trophy” from France Bleue Périgord.

      Choosing CanoSphère to travel the river by canoe also means choosing useful tourism because we contribute to the financing of environmental defense projects in the Dordogne . We are Members of 1% for the planet.

    Very nice and helpful crews, clear instructions, and the pick-up was on time. Very recommended activity to do along the Dordogne river!

    The food surpasses the setting. Simply outstanding. Wonderful burgers - for meat lovers and for vegans (you are in for a treat!). But those chips... holy moly, they are the holy grail! A children's park and abundant parking make it a must for families visiting. Also, their care in the food is matched by their care for the environment. How apt.

    Wonderful trip down to Beynac from Domme. Really beautiful views from the river and a safe easy paddle. Very helpful operator who spoke English well and met us at the end and dropped us off at a nearby village to continue our walk. A highlight of our trip . Thank you CanoSphere!
