Full description

There is much more to Venice than just the city. The surrounding lagoon is full of surprises and adventures for nature and history lovers, and a kayak tour is the best way to discover it.

Afull day of sport and the beauty of the lagoon: we will visit beautiful islands, admire ancient buildings, lush gardens and refined residences. We will cross canals and sandbanks and immerse ourselves in the natural habitat of a large number of bird species.

If you love paddling in company, being in close contact with nature and visiting beautiful places, this experience will not disappoint. Get ready to leave with us!

What we will do

We will meet in the morning at the bar of the Hotel Certosa, on the lagoon island of the same name (you can use the 4.2 water bus to get there). There we will form the group and our guides will provide all the necessaryequipment and instructions. After that we will be ready to leave.

Theitinerary is variable and will be decided together before departure. We will visit the colourful Burano, famous for its lace and picturesque houses, the island of Torcello, known for its basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, rich in Byzantine mosaics, and the island of San Francesco del Deserto with its ancient Franciscan monastery. We will have time to take a complete tour of the lagoon, also passing places of special natural interest, especially for birdwatchers.

We will paddle for most of the day at a relaxed pace, make several stops, and for lunch we will stop on one of the islands, where we can sample local specialities or have a picnic meal.

The excursion will end in the late afternoon with a return to the departure base on the island of Certosa. The route, varying in length from 20 to 30 km, makes the activity suitable for those who are in good physical shape and have some experience in kayaking.
