Venice the city of water

Kayaking in Venice and “bacari” winery tour

Itinerary summary

With our new exclusive kayak tour you’ll get to see Venice like you’ve never experienced it before from the water.

That is how local people move around to accomplish their duties, from transporting goods, to taking taxis, delivering mail, or collecting waste.


Venetian hidden canals by kayak, Canal Grande, Rialto Bridge, “Bacari” walking tour (includes visit to original local wineries).


The tour starts in front of Santa Lucia train station and passes through the center of the city through many of the smaller canals for about 2 hours

The exact route and distance depends on the weather, traffic, tide and the paddling skills of the group.

The tour ends close to Rialto Bridge, the most famous winery area where we will have a walking tour to recharge ourselves refill after the paddling efforts.



The closest airports are Venice and Treviso. From there you can get a taxi, buses or train to reach your departure point (further information will be provided in the answer).

Our canoes and materials

At FRT we know that a good paddling experience requires good equipment comma so we have tried to make as few compromises as possible. We want to work with the best type of boat for each environment. That is why we provide different styles of boats depending on the tour.

In Venice you will paddle on the very last released PackRaft and enjoy its inflating comfort and stability.

This raft is also short and easy to handle in the narrow canals of the city.

On river experiences we will use canoes, better for longer distances and some current.
Our canoes are usually made out of pvc material, very strong and steady to facilitate movement in a river.

Paddles and life vests will be always given to you, together with waterproof bags for the things you want to bring along on the tour.


Price: Euro 90,00 (3 hours tour) per person
