Canoeing on the Dordogne River

The Dordogne river crosses 3 departments: Corrèze, Lot and Dordogne. Discover the Dordogne valley by canoe or kayak. Copeyre Canoe is 140 km downstream of the river Dordogne. As you canoe down the river “Dordogne”, the scenery is ever changing, green valleys, untamed gorges, limestone cliffs, castles, caves etc. Suitable for all ages – but must be able to swim.

Hot Air Balloon over the Dordogne

This takes place over the Dordogne. Shortly before sunset, or at dawn. After helping with the preparation of the flight, you take off with a professional balloonist and paraglider who has been working as a guide in Dordogne for 15 years. The hot air balloon gently floats above castles, follows the river while drifting with the wind, offering you the most beautiful trip ever… A moment of weightlessness you will never forget! /
