Full description
Your tour will begin with you being helped into all of the safety devices, such as the life jacket. You will then partake in a lesson on the ground which will run you through the techniques of paddling and on the use of the kayak. The first leg of paddling will involve your guide teaching you how to paddle, correcting the posture and the movement of your arms as you go. Your first break will then be at the village of the millstones, which consists of submerged stilt houses that you will see from your kayak. After your break, you will engage in another stretch of paddling through untouched nature where you can admire the summer residence of the Popes on the mountain of Castel Gandolfo. You will then take a second break at the Roman port of the Villa of Domitian. Next, you will pass in front of the old structure of the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, where all the kayaking and rowing competitions were fought. Your third stop will then be the Pope's Trampoline, where you will stop to admire the old structure on the lake shore with the ancient papal coat of arms. You will next be invited to continue your tour in a unique way to awaken all your sensory activities, as you paddle in perfect silence and listen exclusively to the sound of nature and the local wildlife. To stay in the theme of wild nature, you will then dock in an uncontaminated beach reachable only by kayak, where if the season allows, you will also dive and swim. Your paddling will then continue to the starting point, from where you will receive another relaxing break.

    I highly recommend this trip. So good to get a break from the crowds and chaos of the city. Very easy to get to castel gandolfo using public transport. We were collected from the train station and brought to the kayak school. Our guide was excellent and made us feel very welcome, and prepared us well for kayaking (1st time). The lake was absolutely stunning and the surroundings very beautiful. The lunch provided was really delicious. All locally sourced produce. We were dropped off at the tiny town and explored it at a leisurely pace. Transport back to Rome runs very regularly. A great way to spend the day. Loved it

    The guides are great guys, really helped us out.

    Very helpful guides, they take care of you. My wife forgot her purse in a cafe in Gandolfo, one of the guides rode up to the cafe, picked it up, and returned it to us before the trip. Lifesaver.!
