This back-to-nature escape is definitely rewarding, especially when Dordogne is the destination of your choice. Let’s see some of the best things that the region offers.

A heavenly place of colors

The department of Dordogne is part of the Aquitaine region, located in southwest France. Have you ever heard of the “Four Périgords”? Dordogne is well-known by its former name Périgord. This name is now carried by the four main touristic areas in the department. Dordogne is a place of colours, and the four Périgords – Green, White, Black, and Purple, make it one of a kind. Each of these areas has its own unique characteristics, from the upland and mountainous eastern terrain, to the mild Mediterranean south.

Périgord Vert (Green) – a must for nature lovers

This is the green scenery of the north. The high rainfall in the area brings to life picturesque landscapes of bright colours. This living environment sparkles even more thanks to the many water reservoirs. Between the small ponds and bogs you can find sunny meadows with yellow, pink, blue, and purple colours. All places in this part of Dordogne are naturally beautiful, but the verdant hills in the west promise some of the best views. In Périgord Vert you will find The Périgord-Limousin Regional Nature Park, which has nearly 2,000km of fascinating hiking trails that you can follow. Be sure to pass by the Dronne river to see its impressive limestone cliffs.

Périgord Blanc

The White Périgord takes its name from the local limestone that was used to build a many of the monuments and buildings that now make it a historical region. Périgord Blanc in central Dordogne is the more touristic area of Dordogne but the natural experience here is just as promising. With a glamping home secluded from the Dordogne cities you can wake your senses in nature. Take a stroll in the woods of the Double Forest or travel down the rivers to discover the local architectural heritage.

Périgord Noir

The Black Périgord carries the black beauty of its dark holm oaks that spread all over the region. The main natural attractions are the caves with ancient rock paintings, and the two biggest rivers – the Dordogne and the Vézère. This region is a prehistoric place filled with sites and buildings from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. You can book a glamping home in Dordogne in the area of Sarlat. Pay a visit to this medieval city and enrich your nature holiday with a cultural experience.

Périgord Pourpre

The Purple Périgord carries the genuine pastoral charm that France is celebrated for all around the world. Located in the south. the region carries the calm Mediterranean atmosphere. The rolling landscapes and sunflower meadows create a romantic feeling wherever you go. But the pinnacle of the scenery in Périgord Pourpre are the grape fields. In the autumn, the leaves of the vineyard-carpeted hills turn purple, painting a picture of a thousand words. Book a glamping home (or a farm!) in this region of Dordogne to have the greatest agritourismo holiday in France.

Lazing around in a boat, or testing your stamina with a bike tour?

Dordogne is the perfect backdrop for outdoor adventures. All water sport enthusiasts will absolutely love this region. Canoeing, kayaking, boat trips along the small or bigger rivers. Along the way you can take a break and go for a wild swim. Even though white water rafting it not possible in the rivers of Dordogne, the spring streams can get you pretty close to it. Challenging for the beginners and exciting for all! Looking for a real-thrill? Then try out water-skiing and wakeboarding. If you’d like to explore the historic sites of Dordogne, you can always take a sight-seeing trip along the Dordogne River and admire the views from your boat.

But we are mostly here for nature, right? Another active way of exploring the outdoors is by bike. With or without a designated route, this can be your main adventure with family and friends. For the more experienced cyclers, you can dedicate a whole day of your holiday to the Dordogne Valley bike ride. The trail lasts for 80km, showing you Dordogne at its finest – the Dordogne river, prehistoric sites and castles, ancient villages, and ever-lasting green landscapes.
