There are so many adventures and activities that you can do in Venice and on its canals. You can take a vaporetto, you can get a gondola ride, you can walk all around the city, but you also can kayak throughout its canals.
We know that it could sound a bit unusual at first, but before excluding this possibility, be aware that there are at least 5 reasons to kayak in Venice at least once.
1. Venice’s roads are canals
Venice is built on the water and from the very beginning the only way to go around here was by using a boat. Venice is not really that different from a traditional city, its canals are its roads and instead of using a car people travel by a boat.
All the buildings in Venice have the original main entrance on the water, this is because Venetian were as used to taking their private gondola as we are used to taking our car to all the places we go everyday.
Kayaking in Venice is the only way to deeply understand how the real life in Venice was.
2. An alternative view of Venice
We are no longer accustomed to thinking about Venice as a city conceived on the water, mainly because nowadays people walk instead of taking a private gondola to go everywhere.
As we are always looking for hidden corners and beautiful spots in any city around the world, if you want to have an alternative view of Venice you need to discover its canals.
Since kayaks are the only kind of boat that can go everywhere in Venice, if you want to truly explore the canals, it is essential for you to take a ride!
3. Sport, tradition and Venetianity
All the three of us are Venetian. We love our city and we love kayaking, we would like to make you see Venice through our eyes and through our heart.
