Lovers of the water can enjoy numerous sporting activities on and around Lake Como.

Since the 1800s canoeing has been a sport on Lake Como that has produced national and international champions. Scattered around its shores there are numerous rowing clubs where you can train or have fun renting canoes.

For the most adventurous visitors there is canyoning, where canoes are taken down small and fast-flowing mountain streams in the company of expert guides. This is also an ideal way of really getting to grips with the wild nature of the province of Como.

The wind blowing constantly in the Upper Lario area produces waves to be tamed when kite-surfing, or sailing or surfboarding. The many sailing centres and schools in the various towns along the lake organise courses and races for all levels and a very good time is guaranteed for all!
