Full description

Try a water sport along Milan's Navigli, just outside the city's urban limits, in quiet places with lush nature that you might not have expected.

If you have never been canoeing or kayaking, this is the right opportunity to try it. Our instructors are waiting for you for an introductory lesson on an easy 3 km course, a real 'baptism of the paddle'.

You will learn the basic techniques for moving nimbly on a boat that can become your faithful companion for relaxing trips on the water!

The activity is also suitable for children, who can have fun in a healthy way while being in contact with nature.

What we will do

We will meet in Trezzano sul Naviglio, just outside Milan, at the canoe school. We will get to know the instructors and the other participants, and we will first hold a theory lesson to learn the basics of paddling and the main safety rules to observe during the outing.

Once the preparatory phase is over, we will move by minibus together with the instructor to Gaggiano. There, we will embark on single or double canoes and begin the 3-km long, current-supported descent, which will take us back to the meeting point in Trezzano. The descent presents no particular difficulty and is perfectly suited to novice canoeists.

The activity lasts a total of 1.5 hours.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an easy level and suitable for everyone aged 9 and up.
