This is a wonderful, complete canoe and kayak guide to the Lot
River/Canal and Célé River system.
Unlike the ÉDB Waterways Guides series (see our French Canals web page) it is written and available only in
French. Fear not, speakers of only languages other than French! The book's icons are

This Guide is the fifth edition of a canoe/kayak guide to the
Lot River that was originally written in 1920. Lot et Célé was expertly
prepared with the Lot Valley Association.
The sample page above is about 2/3rds the size of an actual page in the
Guide. Please note that the scanned photo is not as clear as the printed book.
The 82 maps in the Guide cover a distance of from 8 km. to 20
km. with the average being about 11 km. For Americans that is about 5 mi. to 12 mi. with
the average being 7 mi. Wonderful detail!
We suggest, if you're not proficient in French, that you order ÉDB
Waterways Guide No. 5: Lot, ÉDB Waterway Guide No. 7 Midi-Camargue or No.
