Upper Dordogne Valley Scenic Drive (2 days)

Gorges, dams, castles & a big river in France’s Upper Dordogne


The Upper Dordogne Valley, through which flows one of the quintessential rivers of France, is quite stunning. Before it enters the département it was named after, it flows through Cantal, Corrèze and Lot.

Many visitors overlook this section of the river, which flows through some impressive gorges and pretty villages before reaching it’s eponymous department. The trip includes stunning villages which aren’t on the river but are too close to miss.

Upper Dordogne Valley Route

This itinerary begins at the capital of the Corrèze, the old town of Brive-la-Gaillarde, reaches the Dordogne river and then follows it up to the Cantal département.
