The Venetian lagoon is full of surprises, and few people realise that you can find yourself immersed in nature while having the Venetian skyline just a few kilometres away.
Within a very short of our base on the Certosa islands you can find the 16th century fortress of Sant’Andrea, orchards and small farms on Sant’Erasmo, the ancient quarantine station on Lazzaretto Novo, and marshes full of small winding canals and a plethora of birds.
All of this is well within reach of a 2-2½ hour relaxed paddle.
Half day paddling tours in the lagoon are between 8km and up to 15km. They are suitable for all paddlers.
