Details

The Vézère is a river full of surprises, which is ideally discovered from the water. This 13-km canoe descent from Les Eyzies will make you encounter the historical and natural heritage of this wild river emblematic of the Black Perigord. You will start the circuit at La Roque Saint-Christophe, the largest troglodytic site in Europe and will be able to admire along the way other habitats in the cliffs as well as castles. In family or with friends, easily accessible with young children, this sportive outing also promises nice moments of relaxation and swimming steepest part of the river.
