Details

To enjoy the enchanting scenery of the Dronne, a green river in the Dordogne, this 8km canoe tour from Fontaine d'Amour is the most recommended. Between relaxing landscapes and a beautiful historical heritage with the village of Brantôme, nicknamed the "Venice of the green Périgord", you will spend a magical moment in the heart of one of the most beautiful regions of France. Moreover, because of its very calm flow, the river is perfectly suitable for an excursion with children.

Tour programme
- Preparation:
We meet at our base 1km from Brantome 15min before the booked time (departure of the shuttle bus). You will find a large free car park on the spot. You will be greeted by our team who will give you your equipment (boat and life jacket) and explain the safety instructions. Then you will board our shuttle to reach the starting point of the tour.
- Tour:
The tour starts 6km upstream from Brantôme. You will paddle quietly along the Dronne river, passing under the vegetal arches formed by lime and ash trees growing on the banks. Forget all your worries and enjoy the serene atmosphere of the river until the picturesque village. You will pass by the Abbey of Saint-Pierre de Brantôme founded, according to legend, in the 8th century by Charlemagne, pass under the many bridges and simply enjoy the green surroundings. You will have to pass a few dams and slides but no difficulty on the horizon! Then you will leave the village behind you and join once again the bucolic scenery of the Dronne for another 2 kilometers.
- Return:
You will return to the base approximately 2hrs after leaving. On site you can then enjoy our picnic area if you wish. Don't leave without visiting Brantôme, by foot this time!

"Très bon accueil, service de résa par téléphone efficace (merci à Sam), activité très sympa en famille dans le cadre magnifique de Brantome. Merci à la location de canoë pour l'arrangement malgré une légère incompréhension entre le service résa et la location (nombre de participant). Voilà c'est tout bon pour nous !"
