The Dordogne basin

The Dordogne is popularly regarded as one of France’s “magical” rivers, flowing across the centre of the country.   Starting among the peaks of the Auvergne, at a height of more than 1,600 m, it runs for 472 km before reaching the Atlantic Ocean  -   having joined the River Garonne to form the Gironde estuary, the largest estuary in Europe.

 

The river basin covers an area of 24,000 sq. km, affecting 11 départements and five of France’s administrative regions.
