Riviera del Conero
Canoeing along the Conero Riviera to the Due Sorelle beach!
What we’ll do:
From Portonovo, aboard comfortable and stable double canoes, we will paddle in the waters below Mount Conero, to discover hidden coves and limestone stacks of this stretch of coast now known throughout Italy. Once arrived at the Due Sorelle* beach, we will discover many curiosities about the marine habitat together with the guide: in this rocky stretch of coast of the Adriatic Sea, life is teeming! On the way back by canoe, a walk among the historical and naturalistic beauties of the Bay of Portonovo.
*In case the sea forecasts do not allow us to safely reach the Due Sorelle Beach, we will head to the Mezzavalle Beach. This decision will be made by the guide and will be evaluated the same day.

The canoe route on Lake Fiastra is also suitable for those who are at the first experience. The route is simple and linear, there are no rapids or currents to deal with. In addition, before entering the water, the guide will hold a mini-lesson on land where the basic techniques of safe canoeing will be explained.
Our canoes are particularly stable. Being “open”, the position you assume is that of sitting and with your legs free, you do not have to squeeze into a cockpit. In case of overturning, you will fall into the water and the only danger will be to find yourself wet! In order to avoid any kind of inconvenience, we invite participants to follow carefully all the indications of the guide, especially during the ascent and descent from the canoe.
