The Dordogne River

The enchanting gorges and towns around the Dordogne River have delighted visitors to the region for many years, and what better way to experience the landscapes that tower over the region's deep hewn valleys before seemingly tumbling towards the water's shores than from your leisurely-paced cruise ship? The Dordogne has long been a lifeline for the people of this region, dating back to prehistoric times, and its impact on the area is still visible to this day, from the flat-bottomed gabarre boats that pootle along during the day, to the fisherman whose livelihoods depend on its bounty.

A confluence of the Dordgone is the Garonne River which wends its way through the wine-rich lands surrounding Bordeaux, past the time-honoured landscapes of the Gironde Estuary and out into the Atlantic Ocean.
