The Périgord has 5 rivers to explore by canoe: the Dronne, the l’Isle, the Auvézère, the Dordogne and the Vézère. The department is also the first French destination for the practice of recreational canoeing. With the option of 5 rivers, there are about 70 canoe rentals to welcome you. They invite you to have a look at the Périgord differently while taking the time to let yourself go with the flow. These 5 calm rivers are perfect for family outings. You only have to lift your eyes to look up and admire classified villages like Beynac or Saint-Leons-sur-Vézère, historical sites like the Abbey of Brantôme and of course stunning riverbank scenery, a treasure hidden from those on the mainland.
