An intermediate level tour with marvellous views which follows the northern shore of Lake Garda as far as Torbole and allows you to apreciate the beauty of the lake shore close up
A tour which winds along the lake front, following the northern shore of Lake Garda from Riva to Torbole. Just a few kilometres long but offering you a chance to appreciate all the riches the lake has to offer: a training area for divers, the rocky slopes of Mount Brione, the mouth of the RIver Sarca with its reed beds and finally, a nice beach where you can take a break in the sunshine.
While you are out on the water, if you look closely you will see what is called the water line: the point where the currents of the River Sarca meet those of the lake, with little ripples and a clear difference in the colour of the lake and river water.
Watch out! If you decide to go out on the water in the morning, keep an eye on the conditions of the wind known as the "Pelèr" which blows in the early part of the day. Always check the weather forecast.
The mouth of the River Sarca is home to many ducks and swans which will come looking for food.
