Go back in time by canoeing down the Vézère

The Vézère begins on the Plateau de Millevaches and joins the Dordogne at Limeuil.
In the meantime, it became the river of the 2000 Kayak World Championships in Corrèze and calmed down in Périgord to better admire the Vallée de l'Homme.

Calm but wild, its greenery and its cliffs will charm you.
We invite you to come and contemplate the prestigious sites that line the Vézère by canoe: go back in time by going down the Vézère !
