The Dordogne: Most beautiful region of France - AmazingPlaces.com

The Dordogne

A lovely region with one of the longest rivers in France

The Dordogne is famous for the river by the same name, one of the longest rivers in France. It's 490 kilometres long and at different locations along the river you can find impressive rock formations.

The Dordogne area is quintessential France, named after the river itself. It’s a diverse landscape, delectable food and drinks and so many outdoor activities.

The area is perfect for hiking, but you can also follow the river by bike or car. But there are other adventures to be had here, for example you can hop in a canoe or kayak, or take a hot air balloon and see several castles and the river from above.
