La Roque-Gageac Traditional Barge Boat Trip

1hr, 30 person boat trip with commentary

Travel along the valley of the five chateaux on traditional barges and discover some of the most beautiful sites.

Descended from one of the last families of gabarriers (the men who worked the boats) and fishermen of La Roque Gageac, Gabarres Caminade invite you onto the Dordogne. From La Roque Gageac to Castelnaud bridge, explore the history of the valley, its castles and its boatmen.


Visitor comments

  • "At first we thought why would you go on a boat if you really just wanted to see the town of La Roque-Gageac, then we arrived and saw why. For one hour you can float, no worries, down the river and see the town much better than walking through it and all the while you listen to commentary about history of the boats and town and area. It was a very nice afternoon and worth the small price to float in such a beautiful countryside. This is exactly what we wanted to find in the Dordogne." - Trip Advisor
  • "Great way to see the area from another point of view. Good commentary and relaxing way to spend an hour." - Trip Advisor
  • "This was a happy experience, from buying our tickets to the end of the boat trip. The staff were helpful and obliging, the translation to English was excellent giving us a great idea of what we were seeing along the way. There was good vision from all of the seats on board." - Trip Advisor
