Glide through the waters of Lake Garda, navigating along the coast of the Sirmione peninsula. The Garda mountains serve as your backdrop, the historic town of Sirmione as your foreground.
Upon arrival, we will unload our kayaks and spend a few minutes to grab a quick coffee at the nearby cafe, change clothing, or use the restroom. Each participant will be provided with a dry bag to carry essentials. It is not recommended to leave any valuables in the van.
After an introduction to paddling and setting up our kayaks, we'll head out on the open water! For this trip we utilize sit-on-top kayaks. These kayaks are stable, easy to paddle, and perfect for jumping into the water to cool off.
Approximately two hours into paddling — depending on the group — we'll reach our lunch destination. We'll reserve a table at a restaurant overlooking the water, though you can choose to find something else as lunch is not included in the price. Following our lunch break, we'll hop back in the kayaks for our final hour of paddling featuring some of the most memorable sights of the trip.
Arriving back at our van, we'll load up the kayaks, change into dry clothing, and return to Vicenza.
A note on weather: Typically the weather at this time of year is warm and sunny, though it's still possible to have a rainy day. We will plan to paddle unless the conditions become too dangerous — e.g. thunderstorms or high winds. We will provide updates on the weather prior to the trip.
