Tofino Expeditions, a veteran commercial company offering worldwide kayaking tours, is announcing a brand new kayaking tour that explores the Lakes District of Italy. Using kayaks, which provide a truly unique perspective on one of the most romantic and fascinating destinations in the world, visitors on this tour get an up close and personal look at the stunning landscapes, delectable cuisine, and captivating cultures of Italy’s Lakes District, a destination that has captured imaginations since the days of the Roman Empire.
The trip takes travelers on an adventure through Milan, Lake Como, Lugano, Lake Maggiore and the surrounding villages. Guests will spend days gliding through the placid Italian lakes, taking light exploratory hikes, and experiencing the fascinating history, culture and art of this region of Italy. Nights are spent in boutique hotels that feature cozy accommodations with ideal access to the lake towns and villages.
Guests will kayak, explore, and dine their way through the quaint villages of Menaggio, Bellagio, and Varenna near Lake Como, Stresa, Arona, Luino , and Borromee Island near Lake Maggiore, and Morcote, Gandria and the lovely city of Lugano near Lake Lugano. In addition to enjoying some of the best kayaking in the world, guests will enjoy visits to local villages with shopping and wonderful food.
One of the most remarkable highlights of this journey is the culinary offerings. The Lakes Region offers top dishes that are the slow food specialties of the ittiturismo (fish farming and cooking of the daily fishing ). Guests will dine on meals like fresh catches with balsamic vinegar, and linguine with perch and black olives and ‘misultin, a local fish which is dried in salt and bay leaves. Guests will also sip on local and very wide selection of wines like Merlot and Valtellina.
