In 2012, the Dordogne river basin was recognized by UNESCO for its outstanding setting and natural heritage and added to the World Network of Biosphere Reserves.

Rising in the Massif du Sancy in Auvergne and emptying into the Gironde estuary near Bordeaux, the Dordogne crosses much of south-west France in a westerly direction.
Famous are the Gouffre du Padirac, the Caves of Lascaux and Rocamadour, an Italian Renaissance style village built against the cliff.

Diverse and light walk, where you'll find the path of the river Dordogne in the Quercy in Lot department alternated with the Causse du Quercy, a smooth and rough limestone plateau with open landscapes on the causse. Along the many walnut orchards in the Dordogne valley you have a quiet walk to Carennac an old Medieval town with beautiful centre.
After your stay in Rocamadour, the second pilgrimage site of France, you walk down again to the Dordogne valley by the beautiful small canyon of the Gorges de l'Ouysse.


Different attractions like the old train at Martel and Souillac it self with its old medieval town. After or before this walking tour you should go and see the Gouffre de Padirac and the Caves of Lascaux nearby.
