Gabare boat trips on the Dordogne

This excursion by traditional, flat-bottomed boat provide a unique opportunity to explore the Dordogne valley by retracing the lives of local “gabariers” – intrepid boatmen who carried wood downstream to Bordeaux for use in the wine and barrel-making industries. « The "Adèle and Clarisse" gabare (barge) is named after Beaulieu’s two very last ferrywomen. It was built the old fashioned way, along the Beaulieu riverside, in 2002. There is a sign in front of the pier explaining each step of the construction. Boat rides are available from 1 May to 31 October., subject to prefectural changes and depending on the river’s level. Timetable (subject to change, due to group reservations): contact the Tourist Office at 00 33(0) 5 55 91 09 94.
