Discover the canyons by kayak. Choose and book online

Lake Santa Giustina flows into extremely narrow canyons, accessible only by water with small craft such as canoes and kayaks.

The best-known canyon is that carved out by the Novella river. This is why it is so enchanting:
  • Firstly, it is accessible only by water - there is no other way to enter this 50-metre-deep and 3-km-long gorge.
  • Then there is the sun casting its rays between the rock faces and lighting up the water.
  • And lastly, the sounds and the peace; everything is so narrow and hushed here that you can hear every single drop

If you are already familiar with the canyons of Lake Santa Giustina and how to visit them, go straight to online booking!

An extraordinary experience, suitable for all, even children!

If you have enough strength in your arms to paddle you should have no problem as the entire excursion is on flat water. Children over the age of 5 can take part, ideally in a two-seater kayak with a parent.

All the excursions are conducted in total safety: you will be provided with a lifejacket and helmet (properly sanitised).

Guided excursions always begin with a preparatory phase during which the instructor will demonstrate correct paddling techniques and provide the necessary safety guidelines.


3 entrances to the lake from where the guided kayak excursions depart

The guided excursions are organised by three different agencies. As the shores of the lake are steep and narrow, each agency has established their own departure point and built their experience around it.

1. Punta Ciampalesi di Revò


This is the departure point for excursions organised by Parco Fluviale Novella. For your convenience, a large, free car park is available in the town of Revò at Casa Campia. From there you will be taken by shuttle bus along narrow country roads to the lake shore, where kayak, paddles, lifejacket and helmet await you. This is the point of entry closest to the Novella canyon.

2. Località Plaze


Plaze is a large tree-filled park on the lake shore. It is easily reached from the highway linking Dermulo and Sanzeno, and you will find a large car park, which from 15 July 2021 will charge a fee. From here it is just a 5-minute walk to the lake.

On the lake shore you will find a large tree-filled meadow where you can shelter from the sun, a new bar-bistro and a sandy area where you can hire deckchairs and umbrellas.
 
This is where Ursus Adventures hires out canoes and organises guided excursions in the Novella canyon. As it is not close to the Novella canyon, you will be towed by motorboat for around 10 minutes until you reach the entrance to the canyon, where it will be time for you to paddle!

3. Chalet Al Lago

This cafe is on the lake shore, directly opposite Castel Cles. It can be reached from the village of Banco by following directions for the lake. At the end of the road, you will find a large car park for customers of the cafe and for those participating in kayak excursions organised by the X-Raft agency.
 
You will find the X-Raft canoes moored just a short walk from the lake and it is from here that their excursions depart, paddling for around 700 metres before arriving at the lake entrance.

What to wear and what to bringBear in mind that you will be spending around 3 hours on the water and that you will probably get wet. We therefore advise you to wear shorts or swimwear, a t-shirt, and sandals or light sneakers that you don’t mind getting wet.

Bear in mind that the sun on the water can be particularly strong. Make sure you apply sun protection before you depart, bring it with you, wear a hat and sunglasses, and don’t forget to bring a water bottle!


Book online!As it is extremely narrow inside the canyon, only one group can enter at a time: this is why kayak excursions to the canyon have a limited number of places!

They are also extremely popular, so we advise you to book in advance!

Below you can find all the options for guided excursions and kayak hire with booking directly online! If the activity is cancelled on the day of the excursion due to bad weather, you will be fully refunded.
