Holidays in the Dordogne, France

Paddling down the Dordogne river in your tiny kayak, you suddenly find yourself faced with an amazing castle, towering and stunning, that you had no idea was on the route. When you take on an adventure in the Dordogne, discovering unexpected marvels is not only common but almost inevitable. And even when you know what to expect, the beauty of these locations can catch you off guard: the Lascaux caves are renowned for their pre-historic paintings, yet even when they’re expected, you can feel underprepared for the location’s quiet beauty and intimate history.

Greentraveller features some fanastic trips and tours in the Dordogne, as well as green and gorgeous accommodation options. Cycle through vineyards, canoe down rivers, take a barge down sleepy canals or camp under the stars in your very own yurt. For more information on where to stay and what to do in the Dordogne, follow the links below to find our green accommodations and holidays:
