LifeinourVan’s girls take their grandparents kayaking on the River Dordogne
Having already mentioned in numerous blog posts about just how much we love the Kayking on the River Dordogne… I think regular readers will probably know most of the details of the 26kms of this stretch of the river… and our families love of all water sports! But this time we’ve returned to test out just how easy it might be for the girl’s grandparents… it wasn’t their first time, but perhaps was their first time for many years!!
Lifeinourvan’s Top tips
Our advice would be to seek out the more established companies as they have better facilities & kayaks and are 100% more likely to help if you did need it whilst on the river and keep an eye out for these..
1. Chateau de Montfort – stunning cliffside castle
2. Vitrac Port – its historical wine trade & bird reserve
3. Limestone cliffs at Pencils Passage (peregrine falcons and the old Roman road)
4. La Roque Gageac – history from prehistoric to the 100 years war
5. Castle of Castelnaud – a fairytale castle to match any other
6. Chateau de Beynac – nicknamed ‘Satan’s Bow’… you’ll have to find out why yourselves!!
