Canoeing the Dordogne

Canoeing the Dordogne

A day spent paddling a canoe along the Dordogne is idyllic and the differing views from the base of the river valley are breathtaking. The team here at La Blanquette are now delighted to be able to offer canoe hire. Our trips cater for up to eight people and can be specially tailored with full transportation service. This means you do not have to drive to the river to get your canoes, we pick you up and take you there! This allows you to enjoy your canoeing without taking your own vehicle and also allows you to relax on the riverbank with a glass of wine or two after your exertions!

Our canoes are deluxe Old Town Saranac  canoes designed for three people, with fully fitted seats (with back padding) for the paddlers. We also provide waterproof containers and coolboxes for your use free of charge. Life vests are also provided.

Additionally we now have single person kayaks for hire.

CANOE HIRE RATES

We have various routes for you to decide upon ranging from €20 per person for up to 15km, €25 per person for up to 26km. (Kayaks are €10 extra per person).

The above rates are for guests staying at La Blanquette, there is an additional charge for pickup/dropoff at locations in and around Sarlat.
