Lake Albano Kayak Tour Near Rome

Explore the fascinating and beautiful Lake Albano by kayak on this wonderful tour. We begin with a ground lesson on paddling technique led by our guides, who are also kayak instructors.

Once on the water, you are immersed in the deep peace of the lake. Lake Albano is a unique expression of flora and fauna just a few minutes from Rome. The guide tells you the history of the lake of Castel Gandolfo and shows you some unique historical spots, such as the submerged stilt houses of the Village of the Mills and the ports of the Roman villas.

Interesting sites include the villa of the Emperor Domitian, the areas where the Romans loved watching the atrocious spectacle of naval battles (naumachia), the houses of local hermits, and the trampoline of the popes, where the old popes loved to dive down from their summer residence located in the village above the lake.

During the hottest months, from March to late October, we dock at a beach that can only be reached by kayak for a relaxing break and a refreshing swim in the pristine waters of the lake.

Throughout the tour, the instructors give you continuous lessons on paddling technique. By the end of the tour, you feel like an expert!
