Full description

A kayak tour is the best way to get an up-close look at the beauty of the Venice Lagoon and its islands. Immerse yourself in the enchanting lagoon environment and discover the hidden treasures of the islands of Sant'Erasmo and Vignole.

If you want to experience the most authentic and lesser-known Venice, this is the activity for you! A pleasant walk on the water to discover lush vegetable gardens, hidden vineyards, ancient harbours and elegant residences. An experience not to be missed!

This approximately 2-hour kayak tour is suitable for everyone, even beginners, and includes a guide, the necessary equipment and a basic kayak handling tutorial.

What we will do

The meeting will be at the bar of the Hotel Certosa, on the lagoon island of the same name (you can get there by water bus 4.2). After the necessary introductions have been made, allequipment will be provided and the basic kayak tutorial will be conducted. We will teach you how to use the paddle and steer the boat so that you can move around independently in the water.

If this is your first experience in a kayak, don't worry, our guide will always be by your side to ensure you have thebest experience in total safety.

Our tour will take place between the islands of Vignole and Sant'Erasmo. Shortly after our departure we will come across the Forte di Sant'Andrea, a 16th century fortress built in defence of the Serenissima. We will continue along the island of Vignole, so called because historically it was the vegetable garden that supplied the city with vegetables and fruit. We will admire lush cultivations, verdant vineyards and small farms. We will pass by the old station of Lazzaretto Novo, used for quarantine of ships arriving from the East at the time of the Black Death. We will wander around the canals and sandbanks of Sant'Erasmo, where a large number of birds find refuge.

The activity lasts a total of 2½ hours and covers a distance of 8 to 15 km, with a relaxing paddle suitable for everyone. It will be an unmissable walk on the water between history and nature!
