Navigation

The course of the Dordogne offers a succession of faces well marked throughout the 340 km operated by skippers.

Once fiery and impetuous, the Dordogne is now tamed by a staircase of dams and lakes. Before the construction of such achievements, the water was torrential in winter, almost dry in summer. The main times of year when you could sail barges therefore corresponded to the floods of autumn and spring. In the words of the boatmen, the river was then «market» or «travel» since the water level allowed boats to descend its course. It was said that the Dordogne was navigable from Spontour and floatable from Bort-les-Organs.

Boarding

Open from April to November in La Roque Gageac.

The guides will tell you the rocks that fell on the village, the skippers and the lives of boatmen, sedentary and migratory fish, the river floods, wars, crusades and seats castles as Castelnaud.
