Paddling along the river, especially along this particular stretch, offers a changing panorama of soaring cliffs, castles and picturesque villages. Canoe operators based near La Roque Gageac and Cenac, including Canoë Vacances, Canoë Loisirs and Canoë Dordogne, offer self-guided trips of between one and five hours, depending on your destination.

The quay is also a launch point for river cruises aboard a traditional gabarre.
