The castles

The route of the castles

13km ~ 3h. It is the most emblematic course in the valley. On the natural border that separated the English and the French during the Hundred Years War before becoming a trade route for the gabarriers of yesteryear, this route today allows you to marvel at the mythical villages and castles of the Dordogne. .

→ From our base ideally located to discover the castles, you will sail to one of the most beautiful villages in France, La Roque-Gageac built on the side of the cliffs with the Château de la Malartrie at the exit of the village. Then head for the fortresses of Castelnaud and Beynac, 2 imposing castles on the edge of the cliffs and opposite! The view from your canoe is unique and spectacular. Between these two monuments of the history of France, you will also discover the castles of Marqueyssac and Fayrac. The arrival is after the village of Beynac. You will therefore pass through the village at the foot of the fortress, a unique sensation, a spectacular view from the canoe!
