Lake Paola Kayak Tour
Explore the birdlife, marine species, and wetlands of Circeo National Park through our kayak tour of Lake Paola.
The tour starts with a paddling technique lesson on the ground, led by our guides who are also kayak instructors. After the lesson, you head out to the beautiful lake, which is included in the UNESCO list of Biosphere Reserves.
Become immersed in the deep peace of the lake, unique in its kind, an expression of the local flora and fauna. The guide shares the history of Lake Paola and shows you some unique historical spots, such as the submerged stilt houses of the Villa of Domiziano, and the Sanctuary of Sorresca.
During the hottest times of the year, from March to late October, we also take a relaxing break where we dock at a beach that can only be reached by kayak and swim and dive into the pristine waters of the lake.
Throughout the tour, the instructors give you continuous lessons on paddling technique, and at the end of your experience, you feel confident in your skills.
At the end of the tour, we enjoy a rich lunch in a typical Sabaudia restaurant.
Part of the Circeo National Park (established in 1934), Lake Paola is the southernmost of the four lakes in the park. Famous for its wildlife — including fish, birds, and marine species — the lake is part of the vast forest of the Circeo (similar to the Amazon rainforest), with tufts of rush and with oaks, pines, and cedars. There is notable birdlife such as the gray heron, the purple heron, the water hen, the white stork, and many birds of prey such as the lake’s hawk, marsh harrier, and the marsh owl.
A coastal marine environment, it is located between the municipality of Sabaudia and the Circeo National Park (14 km from San Felice Circeo) and falls within the area of the Agro Pontino, a vast plain south of Rome.
