WHAT DO WE DEMAND TO PRACTICE THE CANOE-KAYAK ?

Being able to swim on 25 meters, to submerge yourself and to wear your life jacket.

 

Is the Dordogne an « easy » river ?

The Dordogne river is listed in 1st category on all the lower part, only from Argentat to Beaulieu some parts are listed to the 2nd category.

 

Is it better to have already tried the canoe-kayak to try it on the Dordogne river ?

Not necessarily. If you never practiced, ask for a little initiation before the beginning of your trip.

 

Can we bring children on the canoes ?

The golden rule is to know how to swim. We have different rules according to the different currents and water levels. Between July and August, when the water is lower and the river does not present any « trap », we are more likely to let go the children aged of minimum 5. No baby on board.

 

Can we bring children for a hike ?

With teenagers, it is a unforgettable experience, please try to rent them an adapted boat and everybody will be happy !

 

Can we go for canoe-kayak trip on several days without booking accomodations ?

Even during the high season, campings alonside the Dordogne will always welcome canoe renters. If you wish to stay in a hotel, please book your room in advance.

 

What kind of clothes should we wear ?

According to the weather forecast, you should adapt your clothes.

- Please do not forget that you will be travelling on the water and that you can get wet.
- Bring some clothes in which you will feel comfortable.
- In case of great sun, please protect your skin with a sun cream, a pair of sunglasses, hats, hats or caps.
- Do not forget to bring water (bottles to sell on our bases).
- Be careful with the cold water shock, get your neck wet regularly.

Leave your car at the arrival point is easier for you.

You must wear closed shoes that you can easily submerge. Flip-flops forbidden.
