History, prehistory, and Bordeaux wine

Aquitaine is just what her name implies, a region of waters characterized by the river Dordogne that flows through it all. Together with the neighboring Vézère, this bucolic river navigates valleys full of nuts and fruit as it winds along cliff walls that once served as a refuge for our ancestors over 30,000 years ago.

On this idyllic walk through the heart of one of France’s prized culinary regions, we follow trail guide Peter Watson, pausing for al fresco lunches and fine dining accompanied by local vintages. Marvel at the art of our ancestors during visits to prehistoric cave systems, visit stunning châteaux, and wander the medieval villages that dot the landscape.
