Fair prices and a very chilled atmosphere are making this place a perfect spot to spend the day. The track is larded with obstacles of different difficulty levels on which pros or advanced riders can try their new tricks. Having an attempt on a wakeboard/water-ski or simply enjoying sunbathing at the seaside, it’s up to you how to relax. By the way the same lake supplies rowing possibilities. Not the worst way to keep up your fitness level.


Lago di Garda offers probably the best wind conditions but the nearby lakes like Lago Maggiore and Lago di Como can be considered as great sailing spots as well. Kite surfing in particular is popular at the north side of Lago di Garda at Riva. Packed with kite schools and full with enthusiastic kite surfers, one sometimes has to look closely to find the own kite. In addition many tourist rejoice themselves in windsurfing at Riva.
