Five-kilometer intermediate workout for adults in groups, couples or single kayakers. Ever sailed under the Venetian bridges, along Venetian canals? Or visited a Venetian rowing club? Venice has a long tradition of water sports, do you know?  We are Nicoló and Aleksandra, a young couple living in Venice. Members of a prominent rowing club, we practice water sports every day. We invite you to experience Venice by water with us.  Let us show you Venice from another perspective — cultural, sports-oriented and local.  Improve your kayaking skills in authentic canals of Canareggio or Castello, beautiful districts famous for the first ghetto in the world, the Medieval Arsenal, Venetian Gothic palaces and Renaissance churches. No doubt, the pink and gold sunset view from the water will be one of your travel highlights. One of the most beautiful memories from this romantic moment you will cherish. Visit the historically important Venetian rowing club, as it is the best place to immerse yourself in Venice's history, traditions, and contemporary life. By participating in our activities, you contribute to preserving this unique and historically significant site. Part of your fee goes to support the restoration and maintenance of the club.  What is the program of the class? Visit to the rowing club; Paddling instructions; Training on the water. How many kilometers will we paddle? We will do 4-5 kilometers. Important: Paddling is a sport and requires skills, experience in water sports or other sports. Make sure you meet the requirements and have a paddling experience. We will reach out to you to determine your level of experience. In some cases, the guide may transfer your booking to another group that has the same skill level as yours.
