Kayak down the Vézère
An interesting, active and adventurous way to explore the Vézère valley is by kayak. A number of Kayak companies operate on the Vézère offering a number of drop-off and pick-up locations. Choose a route of a few hours or a day depending on your interest and condition.
Pull your kayak from the water to have lunch at picturesque Saint Leon, or a number of sights to visit. The following map and table give an indication of the possibilities and average time needed.

Kayak companies drop you, your kayak and equipment at the agreed starting point, and pick you up from the agreed end of your trip. In between you are pretty much ‘on your own’. Kayaking is easy and fun, though might be challenging if this is your first experience. It is advisable to have at least one experienced person to help.
