Kayaking in Sete Cidades | Rental 1H


Kayaking is a relaxing way to experience the lake and at the same time enjoy the tranquility of the water. Our sit-on-top Kayaks are brand new, with two ergonomic seats and still enough room for a child. Life jackets and double-bladed paddles are included.

We will welcome you at 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.

At the end of your 1-hour kayak trip, you will have the possibility to change in the dressing rooms and take a hot shower. Note that it is always better to have a change of clothing in case you get wet during the activity.

Renting a kayak is possible all year round but we recommend to book first through our website or contact us to be sure we have equipment available for you.

The price for this activity is 10€ per kayak for one hour. You can be two adults and a child on one kayak. If you have more than 1 child, you will have to take 2 kayaks.

Please note that the minimum age for a child to rent a kayak for himself/herself is 8 years old. Children under 8 years old have to be accompanied in the kayak with an adult.
