Among the many players, we’re going to recommend two. The nearest is in Grolejac with our partner Explorando. We recommend the châteaux tour, which takes in no fewer than 7 châteaux as far as Beynac. The alternative is to set off from Domme with our partner CanoSphère, which has a clear commitment to sustainable development. You then have the choice of travelling down the Dordogne towards the châteaux or taking the shuttle bus to a slightly higher departure point and returning via the wildest part of the river. This option offers greater freedom in terms of timing, as you don’t have to wait for a shuttle to take you back to the car park. From 5 years. Finally, there’s also the option of doing a mix of canoeing and cycling for those who prefer a return trip!
We are talking about our good plans here, which means that we know and have tested the activities described. However, I will make an exception with this category because I must confess that I am not really fond of thrills… I tried to push Richard but he always has a good reason to postpone the experience! So I trust the testimonies I heard! It is at the confluence of the rivers Célé and Lot that Kalapca Loisirs offers you an impressive range of possibilities. It should be emphasized that they try to integrate practicable routes for the youngest.

The bois des elfes is a must! All the families who have tried it have raved about it. The park has the added advantage of being very close to the campsite. Acrobatic courses in the trees accessible from the age of 2, with a wide variety of workshops, including a labyrinth course, 1000m of zip lines, including a giant 300m one flying over the lake, and much more. For those who aren’t so keen on heights, there’s an interactive Escape Game between heaven and earth, an orienteering course and a digital treasure hunt! A native of the Lot, Thomas shares our values of sustainable development and seeks to limit his impact on the environment. Talk to him about it!
You leave with our partner guide in groups of 4 to 15 people maximum, on a section of river that is not very busy even in high summer. Patrick will share his passion for the Dordogne river, he will explain you the flora, show you the kingfishers, you will venture into dead arms accessible only by canoe and Patrick will even do a little magic! Quiet walk for half a day to a day, with no skill required and with the assurance of coming back satisfied! I won’t tell you more and let you discover…Here too, the feedback has been excellent!
The Lot is a little climbing paradise! There are 17 sites and over 1,300 routes to choose from, with something for everyone. You can start or improve your skills with a professional guide. To make it easier for you to climb on your own, we provide a Topo-guide with details of the cliffs in the département. For children aged 6 and over. If you are in a group, we can offer you an all-inclusive package that allows you to enjoy your passion without having to think about the logistics of meals, for example. Go to our group stay page.
When it’s very hot, it’s a good idea to get some coolness from the river or lake. We recommend Saint Julien de Lampon, on the Dordogne river. Pebble beach with spots where children can wade quietly. But also some spots where the locals train and swim against the current. The current depends on the period and the rainfall. In Gourdon, you have the leisure center “Ecoute si il pleut” (Listen if it rains), or the one in Cazals where you can go pedal boating for example. For something wilder and more intimate, we recommend the pond at Lamothe-Fénelon, just 10 minutes away.
The Dordogne river is a must. It can be done in a gabarre, a replica of the traditional sailing boat of the 18th and 19th centuries. You embark for a loop of one hour from La Roque-Gageac, one of the favourite villages of the French. A quiet commented trip that allows you to take a break during the day between visiting Domme and the castle of Castelnaud for example! It’s also a chance for the little ones to have a rest.
We have a fishing pond in the village of Le Vigan, le Lac vert. There are organized fishing initiations for children. This is also the case on Gourdon. The most famous spot is obviously the Dordogne river where we look for trout, grayling but also pike and perch. Le Rêve is located 20min from the site of Mareuil. We hold at your disposal, the fishing guide of the department. You can also opt for a fishing session at our partner Gouffre de Blagour. They offer a miraculous fishing experience that’s great fun for children.
