Alvin

My name is Alvin and I manage the B&B Villa KK private rooms in Padua. During the summer I work as a rafting guide (1 level) in the mountain rivers and I have been practicing kayak for more than 20 years (I am a certified kayak instructor). Paddling on the river especially towards the sunset is a unique experience that I recommend to try everyone. You can hear the sound of the water breaking in your canoe and at the same time enjoy the nature all around you. To visit Padua by kayak you do not need to be an expert canoeist: just do not be afraid of water, have a change of dry clothes, sunglasses and a great desire to have fun.

What's included

Equipment
All participants will be provided with the following equipment - kayak (single or double) - paddle - life jacket

Where you'll be

You will visit by kayak a specific area of Padua immersed in the beautiful nature that surrounds the Bacchiglione river. The half-way stop at the beach bar will be an opportunity to rest for a while and enjoy a non-alcoholic aperitif, a good glass of prosecco or the famous "Spritz Padovano" depending on your taste.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).
