Lake Matese Canoeing Experience: Explore Italy’s highest karstic lake

Lake Matese, located between the Italian regions of Campania and Molise, is a hidden gem nestled between the mountain peaks of the Apennines. This enchanting body of water, of karstic origin, is surrounded by unspoilt nature and offers an atmosphere of peace and serenity.

Immerse yourself in a unique journey through the crystal-clear waters of Italy’s highest karst lake, with an exciting Canadian canoeing experience that will take you through breathtaking landscapes and discover a treasure trove of biodiversity.

Lake exploration:

With the soothing sound of nature, we will slowly push along the shores of the lake, enveloped by the majesty of the mountain peaks reflected in the water. We will enjoy the feeling of peace and tranquillity as we explore hidden corners and picture-postcard landscapes.

Not only in the morning and afternoon, but also at sunset, when the warm colours of the day mingle with the shades of pink and purple of the evening sky, our adventurous journey begins. Accompanied by experienced local guides, we will paddle into the calm waters of Lake Matese on board canoes in the crystal-clear waters of the karstic lake.

What we will do

Observation of Fauna and Flora:

During our excursion, we will have the unique opportunity to get close to the rich wildlife that inhabits the lake and its shores. We will be able to spot elegant herons circling above the waters, the many species of birds of prey that inhabit the lake, and the marvellous dragonflies that accompany us during the summer months. Inside the lake you can observe the wonderful flora with special water lilies, carnivorous flowers and the wonderful underwater forest.
