If you want to practice sport but also to have fun, if you want to escape from a busy day in town, if you are already in Tremezzina for a weekend or for a holiday or if you just do not know what to do on a sunny day … a kayak trip on Lake Como is what it takes for you.
There is no need for great sports skills or other special requirements, a kayak or canoe tour is a great experience for everyone – from small to bigger, from those looking for fun to those who prefer cultural tours. Do not worry if you do not have a canoe with you because there are several points to rent: Ossuccio at ACCADUEO S.r.l but also at Griante at the Al Puunt-Snack beach bar.
The most popular is the kayak trip around the Isola Comacina, the only island on Lake Como that is in front of the village of Sala Comacina and Ossuccio. It is a small islet and for this reason, petting around the island requires about half a mile, but it also allows you to see directly from the lake the Church of St. John, the artists’ houses, the restaurant and the La Botte bar on the island.
In the same area, if you want to continue following the coast, you can admire the romantic villages of Sala Comacina and Ossuccio with their churches a few meters from the lake, the cobblestone squares and the beaches.
If you look up to the mountains, there are other wonders to wait for us: the Rescue Tower or Barbarossa Tower, a UNESCO heritage site since 2003, which is easily identifiable for its mastery of plants and for its strategic location suitable for overseeing ‘Island.
Not far from the Tower is its right and a little above the Sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin of Relief with its chapels scattered on the path.
It certainly deserves a place in the list of places to visit in your kayak outing on the lake the villas of Ossuccio and Lenno. Everyone can say that they have visited Villa del Balbianello or have gone to Villa Monastero for a wedding, but only canoeing can boast of having lost for hours in watching Villa Balbiano, Cassinella and Villa del Balbianello directly from the lake!
These wonderful villas can be reached in less than 10 minutes from Lido di Ossuccio, where you can easily get to the lake by canoe or rent it.
If you move to and beyond the Balbianello the current begins to feel and it will be a bit more difficult to pack .. but once in the Gulf of Venus the situation returns pleasantly and here you can see all the other villas and lakes overlooking the lakeshore Of Lenno.
In Cadenabbia, if you want to leave here, you must definitely take a tour of Tremezzo to discover the beautiful view on Villa Carlotta, Teresio Olivelli Park and the lake promenade.
Even in this itinerary, the view over the mountains above the village is breathtaking, the lake-level panorama has nothing to envy the high-altitude view.
Moreover, the rest for a refreshing bath in the lake is almost obligatory and in this case we only have the embarrassment of choice: for those who prefer the most popular beaches there are no problems because they are all reachable by lake, there are no time limits Or car parks, there is plenty of time to enjoy an aperitif or a snack in one of the many shores of the Tremezzina area.
For those who want relaxation and prefer the intimate and not very crowded beaches of choice. From Colonno to Menaggio there are many and some reachable only by the lake, such as that of the Comacina Island.
Nothing is forbidden to go to Menaggio or even for those who feel it, to reach the opposite shore of the lake and to visit the towns of Lezzeno and Bellagio, or to visit the coast of the whole Tremezzina on a single day!
It is therefore an economic activity suitable for everyone, especially for families because it is loved by children, and also for a sport where you are deciding where to go, what to visit and the length of your business. An experience that can be built and tailor-made for you, for your needs and interests.
In short, a kayak day on Lake Como is a unique experience, a perfect match between culture and sport, between fun and relaxation, between sun and nature.
