    • Philippe Colomy is an ex-member of the French national canoeing team and holds the state diploma for teaching canoeing and kayaking. He invites you to come and enjoy his sport with his team.

      "Travel back in time, canoeing down the Vézère " In the heart of the Black Périgord and of the Valley of Mankind, the River Dordogne's little sister river, the Vézère, is worth a visit.

      Located on the banks of the charming little village of Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère, a stone's throw from the major sites of La Roque Saint-Christophe, Thot, Château de Losse or Lascaux IV.

      What could be a better way to discover the Vézère and the wonderful sites along the riverside than by canoeing down it !

      WHOEVER YOU MAY BE : By yourself or with the family, Tour organizers, Instructors and teachers, we invite you to come and discover the Vézère by canoe and the Upper Vézère by raft with our qualified and experienced enthusiastic team.

      Novelty : geo-located audio-guides "Nature and history have never been so close to you..." French and English version

    Friendly staff and parking on site! We did Thonac - Tursac but didn't make it to the end with our 2 (small) children. Lots of places along the route to make a stop and take a swim. We probably did one too many of those :) A small bus wil take you to the starting point (4k upstream) and will pick you up at the end. We threw in the towel when we passed St Léon s. Vézère again. The place can be very busy so make a reservation if you want to be sure of your spot.

    Extremely well organised, well run canoe and kayak hire. Staff are friendly and helpful and speak good English. We did the 8km run downstream which took about 1.5 hours, really nice stretch of river with no major rapids or rocks so good for beginners and families with young children. Would recommend

    We did the 3 day canoe hike from Montignac to Limeuil in July 2022, and can highly recommend this business for canoe and kayak rental. The equipment was good quality, the organisation was very efficient and the staff were friendly and helpful. The parking onsite at St Leon is very convenient. This is a great river for kayaking: it is interesting but not at all technically challenging.
