Castel Merle: this is close to St. Leon-sur-Vezere and we visit on the Perigord and 3 River trips.

 

Font de Gaume: this is in Les Eyzies. Access is now restricted and cannot be booked in advance. We can try to make arrangements to visit if required on the Perigord and 3 River trips.

 

Rouffignac: the cave drawings in this cave are accessed by a small railway. It is possible to visit on the 3 Rivers trip instead of Sarlat market.

 

Pech Merle: we visit this on 3 Rivers and the Cele trip.

 

Lascaux: visitors are only allowed to access the replica site. But this is still amazing. We can arrange to visit on the last morning of the Perigord & 3 Rivers trip before going to Brive. In 2017 the new Lascaux 4 is opening.

Below are described some of the sights from the trips to the Perigord and the Cele (including the 12 Day 3 Rivers trip).

 

Details of the Ardeche/Tarn Trip and those for the Belgium Ardennes and the Garden of England can be found in the brochures, which may be downloaded.
