Other Water Sports Activities

Kayaking

Remember, we’re all about focusing on areas in France that are close to the Océan Atlantique. So, let’s introduce you to the Dordogne River which travels west towards the estuary along the Atlantic coast called Gironde. The river is calm which is perfect for a serene kayak trip as you look around at the beautiful surroundings. There are also hiking trails if you’re more of a walker than a paddler.

 

Fishing

You may want to sign up with a travel company if you’re unsure of the best places or types of fish that can be found. However, there is a French lake called Etang de Beynac which is known for its abundance of carp fish. This type of fish is popular within the French communities. Get booking today if you’re in need of a fishing holiday!
