The Dordogne is an endlessly beautiful river, and one of the best ways to enjoy it is to paddle your own canoe (hired) for a day or half day. Try Le Bugue, Port d’Envaux and Le Roque Gageac if you are nearby.
Sports and Activities in Dordogne
The Dordogne and Vézère valleys make spectacular horse-riding country, and you will find a number of farms and equestrian centres from where you can enjoy a day’s riding or even overnight tours.
Hautefort offers quad bike trekking and paintballing in four different terrains respectively. A fun day out for families with older children. Mix the paint, but not the attractions!
Your first step… get detailed walking notes or take a guided tour from our two Sarlat parcs. They’ll lead you to some of the Dordogne’s hidden treasures.
There are seven fine golf courses in the Dordogne, where you can enjoy nine or eighteen holes (and many more bunkers) in some genuinely lovely scenery.
