Welcome to a very special tour to this beautiful region of southwestern France. The French consider the Dordogne River to be the most beautiful river in France. You will soon understand why as we immerse ourselves in this timeless landscape. Sunlight mixes with shadows and history mingles with rural French culture. Row past châteaux, some stern and austere, perched high on impossible cliffs, glaring across green valleys. Others sport turrets and fanciful carvings, nestled among gardens. Discover other histories of pilgrimages, battles and prehistoric cave paintings. Sheltering the history is a lush and varied landscape, as the river cuts a winding path through ancient limestone. At times it feels surprising remote and untouched. We also pass delightful towns and villages, built of this same warm, golden rock. It is a beautiful river to row.
