A really easy tour suitable for anyone who has just started SUP but which rewards you with a lovely view of the lake front and the centre of Riva del Garda
SUP is not just a sport, a trend, but also a way of life. It is not just about getting exercise for the sake of it, but also about discovering the surrounding area, adventure and physical and mental wellbeing.
This is why even a simple tour like this one could be a first step in a new outdoor activity, a new way of discovering the area, slowly, at the speed of the paddle. From your vantage point on the ake you will get a fresh new perspective on all the activity on the beach, the colours of the parks and the buildings in the town centre, the colourful sails dotted along the horizon.
Please note that our evaluation of the level of difficulty of this tour only counts when the lake is calm. When there are waves, the level of difficulty increases considerably.
Do not miss the opportunity to admire the famous Spiaggia degli Ulivi, symbol of the night life of Riva del Garda, built in the 30ies.
