Venice Kayak offers a limited range of winter tours in the colder, darker season, roughly from late October to late March.
The limiting factor is the amount of daylight available during the winter. Longer and later tours will inevitably run out of daylight before we’re back.
Water temperatures rarely go below 10°C, but even at that temperature hypothermia can be an issue if somebody capsizes. We therefore ask more questions about skills and experience, and we’re more likely to turn people away, if we don’t think they’re up to paddling in the conditions we have here in winter.
We have a limited supply of neoprene long johns, besides jackets, gloves and hats. It is very important to bring suitable inner layer clothing, either woollen or synthetic, to keep warm during the tour.
