Castel Gandolfo Lake Kayak and Swim Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
What to Expect
A tour lasting about three hours. We will start from the beach in front of our headquarters with a technical breafing on paddling and on the lake tour.

We will provide you with canoe, paddle and life jacket. We will leave with our hiking guides, who are also federal kayak instructors, immediately immerse themselves in the wild and unspoiled, where depending on the time of year you can also take a dip in the turquoise and pristine waters of the lake. Continue towards the hermit's house, the Roman port, the trampoline of the popes and the village of the millstones, a submerged palafitte complex visible only in kayak.
