Nothing beats a canoe tour to discover the wonders of the Dordogne river. Either alone or with someone to help you paddle, this 9 km long descent between Carsac and Vitrac invites you to admire the beauty of the Périgord's landscapes, especially the Rocher de Caudon, an impressive rock formation overhanging the river, or the meanders of the river near Montfort, with its castle on the edge of a cliff. You can go down the river at your own pace, which makes this canoe trip perfect for families with young children.
