During the paddle, participants will be immersed in the deepest peace of the lake, a unique expression of flora and fauna just a few minutes from Rome. Your guide will tell you about the history of Castel Gandolfo lake and show you some unique historical points, such as the submerged pilings of the Villaggio dei Mulini, the harbors of the Roman villas and in particular the villa of the Emperor Domiziano – in these wonderful places we will eat and drink wine and typical local food – where the Romans loved to watch the atrocious spectacle of the naval battles (naumachia), the houses of some hermits and the trampoline of the Popes, where the old popes loved to dive from their summer residence located in the village above the lake.
In the warmer periods, from March to the end of October, there will also be a relaxing break where we will dock at a beach that can only be reached by kayak and swim and dive in the pristine waters of the lake.
Throughout the tour, instructors will give you ongoing lessons in paddling technique and, by the end of your experience, you will know how to kayak discreetly.
Please inform us in advance if you have any allergies or special dietary requirements.
An experience suitable for children aged 14 and over.
