Dordogne

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.

Located in southern France, the Dordogne flows through fertile farmline and vineyards, passing traditional villages as well as the lively port city of Bordeaux. The Dordogne is also one of the few rivers in the world that exhibits a tidal bore, which forms a series of waves on the river, making it popular among surfers. Explore the 18th century architecture and world-class shopping in Bordeaux and indulge in gourmet cuisine and unforgettable wines from local wine chateaux.
