Killing Venice Slowly

The Italian government has decided to dig a new deep canal through the Venetian lagoon to give the next generation of cruise ships, even bigger then the current ones, a passage to Venice. Please consider signing the online petition against this next assault on Venice. This decision was taken in Rome without any kind of […]

The Redentore Feast

The Redentore Feast is probably the most important popular celebration in Venice. Dinner down in the calle, fondamenta or in barca, ended by huge fireworks in the bacino afterwards. We celebrated in Riva de l’Arsenal, and enjoyed the fireworks from the nearby Ponte della Marina Veneta.

Repairing the s-ciopon

Our s-ciopon (a traditional Venetian wooden boat) is currently under repair. It started to take in a bit of water back in February, and as I was leaving for a short holiday, I had to take it out of the water. It’s been on land now for three months which is not good for a […]

Poor Poveglia

The challenge of the association Poveglia per tutti of collecting enough money to beat the other bid for the island, failed. The association arrived at €420,000 but that was not enough, as the unknown other bidder had offered €513,000 for the island. Second battle lost, then. The war is not necessarily lost, though. The next […]

Gondola on gondola

Most gondolas in Venice sport a little figure on the front. Normally its a human figure, or an angel, or even a Buddha or a Ganesh. You see a bit of everything. It is, however, a first to see a gondola on a gondola. For whatever reason, the gondola also had a plush giraffe hanging […]

"The canals, both in Venice and in Copenhagen, are in the middle of a city, so neither is a good choice for camping."

Venice Kayak

I'm the owner of Venice Kayak, and live in Venice in the summer and in Denmark in the winter.

Venice Kayak offers complete kayak holidays and guided tours of the city and the lagoon by kayak. We’ll arrange daytrips and night paddles with you in the city, in the lagoon and in the Adriatic. We’ll paddle with gondolas in Canal Grande and roam the smaller canals, stopping in little squares for lunch. We’ll paddle to Murano to see the glassworks, we’ll visit a traditional gondola shipyard and we might even do a voga alla veneta tryout, rowing like a gondolier.

Venice Kayak can cater for groups of 4-12 participants for up to a week or more. We’ll pick the group up in the airport, organise kayak friendly camping or hotel, provide kayaking gear and guides, and help you plan you time on land as well.
