Canoeing Caniçada

Single or Double Kayak Rent The kayaks are a great way to discover the hidden corners of the lake. Very easy to use-suitable for beginners or experienced paddlers they allow you to quietly explore the 4 "arms" of the lake . With family or friends or even alone with nature, a canoe trip is always a good and healthy option. We have a range of kayaks single and double seaters. The double kayaks can accommodate a small child seated in the middle (up to 90 centimetres high). Sit on kayaks are the easiest for general use as they offer the possibility to jump in and out of the water – being possible to climb back on board in deep water and if you capsize you can reright the kayak and continue without having to return to the shore. Sit in kayaks are slightly more comfortable, offer a drier ride and are good if you wish to take a tour. (However, they are difficult to jump in and out of and, if you capsize they fill with water and it is not possible to reright until you are back on dry land.)
