Water attracts the attention of adults and kids - what is particularly exciting is a boat trip on one of South Tyrol’s lakes.
South Tyrol does not offer open seas, but nevertheless there are several possibilities to experience the area from the water. “Sail ahoy” from July to October on the largest artificial lake of South Tyrol, Lake Resia, on the MS Hubertus. The captain of the boat is going to tell you more about the flood in the villages of Curon and Resia. From the water, you can also get very close to the flooded tower in Lake Resia.
Also at the shores of Lake Caldaro in the south of South Tyrol you can rent paddle-boats and rowing boats and experience the lake from a different perspective. Very popular is stand up paddle surfing.
Also at the neighbouring Small and Large Lakes of Monticolo you can rent boats.
There is also a boat rental service at the Pond of Fiè. This lake is an idyllic little paradise at the foot of the Sciliar and ideal place for a family excursion. Round the lake, there is a keep-fit trail, if you would like to complete your day at the lakeside with a walk.
Furthermore, Lake Braies in Val Pusteria is ideal for a boat trip. Boats can be rent at the beginning of the trail round the lake. Face to face with the Croda del Becco and the rough rock faces of the Dolomites, boat riding is particularly romantic. A little tip on the brink: Lake Braies is a mountain lake, also in high summer it might get rather fresh in this place. Don’t forget warm clothes!
Once you visit the Val Pusteria: also at the shores of Lake Dobbiaco, there is a boat rental. Enjoy your boat trips and… sail ahoy!
