Boats, water-skiing

Boat trips on traditional flat-bottomed gabares are the perfect way to discover the Dordogne gorges and valley, retracing the route these vessels used to take to transport wood down to the vineyards and barrel-makers of Bordeaux. Trips on bateau-mouche are also available on the Lac de Val in Bort-les-Orgues. Leisure parks offer water-skiing on four lakes of over 100 hectares.
