Project Description

Our “Swiss Lakes Tours” are aimed at paddlers with some paddling experience and explore some of the most beautiful corners of Switzerland whilst further developing your skills.

In Ticino we visit Switzerland’s most southerly lake, Lago di Lugano, dotted with palm trees and spectacular mountain scenery. The shape of the lake offers ever changing views and provides lots of possibilities to explore, with good food, coffee stops and the pretty fishing villages of Morcote and Gandria to visit along the way. The area is a UNESCO world heritage site and really gets you into that holiday feeling with its Italian flavour and laid back atmosphere.
As with all our tours, we also take the opportunity to help develop your skills, improving your forward paddling technique and maneuverability in your kayak. Back at the camp, we

We spend two days on Lago Lugano to really take in Ticinese ambiance and culture. We meet on the Friday evening in Marroggia at the campsite and take the opportunity to sample the great Ticinese food. On the first day we start in Ponte Tresa and make our way to the campsite at Maroggia stopping at Morcote along the way. On the second day we continue our journey towards Lugano with the option of passing by Gandria, before completing our journey in Lugano itself.
