Presentation of the trek

During this trek, we will learn about the history of the river Dordogne, a very important means of communication before the advent of the railway.
The river Dordogne crosses the department from east to west, before joining the sea at Bordeaux.

Day 1, we leave the stables at Bouniagues, passing through hills and forests. We follow the Dordogne river bank and spend the first night at Couze, where there will be the opportunity to visit a historic paper-mill.

On the second day, we head towards Alles-sur-Dordogne via the forest of la Bessède. This is where the river Dordogne and the river Vézère meet. We visit Limeuil, a charming little village built on the banks of the 2 rivers.

Day 3 and we return to the Bergerac area, but along the opposite river-bank: we enjoy the magnificent view across the river Dordogne from the meander at Tremolat. We picnic at Mauzac following a gallop of 3 kms along a grassy towpath. We spend the night at Pressignac where you will receive a warm welcome in a delightful bed and breakfast.

On day 4, we return to the stables, crossing the river Dordogne once again and passing through magnificent villages and hamlets renovated in the authentic Périgord style. We picnic at the foot of the chateau at Lanquais and return to the stables in the afternoon.
