Description - What to expect

Start your Castel Gandolfo Lake (lake Albano) kayaking tour with instructions on paddling technique by your professional guide. Once in the water, immerse yourself in the deep peace of the lake. Lake Castel Gandolfo or Lake Albano is a beautiful volcanic crater lake in the Alban Hills of Lazio, at the foot of Monte Cavo, just 20 km southeast of Rome.

Listen to your guide and learn about the lush environment surrounding the lake and its fascinating history. See the villa of Emperor Domitian, the areas where the Romans loved watching the atrocious spectacle of naval battles, the houses of local hermits, and the trampoline of the popes, where the old popes loved to go from their summer residence located in the village above the lake.

During the hottest months, from March to late October, you will 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, your instructors will give you tips on paddling techniques.
