You're leaving the base in the city of Cahors. Here you will find many exceptional views of the green meanders of the Lot River. Enjoy 64 km of river full of adventure!

Cahors, a thousand-year-old town, offers many places to discover — a historic centre with medieval buildings and neoclassical buildings; the Valentré Bridge, restored in 1880, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998; the massive walls or the Cathedral of St. Stephen.

On the Lot River you will sail into the heart of one of the most stunning regions of France. As you sail through the calm waterways, you will encounter cliffs, caves or dolmens. The local locks, the ageless village of Quercy, the alleyways, the red mossy roofs or St-Cirq-Lapopie will make your cruise magical.

The Lot River is also suitable for gourmets! Here you can enjoy the black wine of Cahors, which made the town rich in the Middle Ages, foie gras or truffles. The region is also suitable for swimming or horse riding.
