Three Canoe Trips Behind Me

Canoe France

As usual I've been away in the Perigord/Dordogne/Lot regions of France guiding a series of canoe trips. These trips are run by Battenkill Canoe and I work as  River and Trail Guide.

The 12 day trip is spread over three rivers; the Vezere, the Cele and the Dordogne, with a rest day between each.

The first day on the Vezere goes from Montignac to St. Leon-sur-Vezere and passes several small but dramataic chateaus.

The second day, from St. Leon down to Les Eyzies, passes some famous sites known for Troglodyte dwellings for many thousands of years.

It's then a rest day where we visit Sarlat and Rocamadour.
