Canadian Canoe in Santa Caterina

Explore the Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso by Canoe

Immerse yourself in a unique adventure with a guided canoe tour on Lake Maggiore. Departing from the picturesque harbour of Arolo, you will be guided by an experienced instructor along the lake's impressive cliffs to the Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso, a monastery set into the rock overhanging the water. Along the way, you will discover surprising sights, including unique shipwrecks and Banksy-style art installations, until you reach a secret and exclusive place: the Pirate's Lair. This evocative place, accessible only from the lake, will allow you to relax in a magical and unique atmosphere, far from the noise of civilisation. You can enjoy an excellent snack or an alternative aperitif, and even organise a very special breakfast, lunch or dinner.
