Kayak or SUP - One Hour Rent


Paddling is a relaxing way to experience Sete Cidades lake and at the same time enjoy the tranquility of the water. Our sit-on-top kayaks have two ergonomic seats and still enough room for a child.
Welcome to our activity center on the edge of the lake. There, you can get changed in our dressing rooms.
Once you are ready, we will explain to you how to kayak on the lake, the safety rules and we will give you the equipment needed to do this activity properly.
Renting a stand up paddle in Sete Cidades is a good opportunity for those who always wanted to experiment this activity because there are no or very small waves, making it much easier than in big lakes or in the sea. Once you get the hang of it, you can even try some yoga poses!
At the end of your 1-hour kayak or SUP trip, you will have the possibility to change in the dressing rooms and take a shower.
Our SUP boards can be used by one adult at a time.
Note: For more adventures, you can rent a kayak for more than one hour, depending on availability. (minimum of 30 minutes)
