Archimedes’ principle states that “a body immersed in a fluid experiences a buoyant force equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces”, and consequently the weight of the human body vertically immersed in water turns out to be apparently reduced at the 95% of its real weight. Anyway, even without bringing up one of the most important mathematicians in history, we can affirm that practicing water sports is almost like going back to our childhood.
Sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, canyoning, kayaking, stand-up-paddle surfing, kitesurfing, fishing, and the old-but-gold swimming! There are manifold water sports you can practice in Garda Trentino! If you love feeling the wind on your face during hot summer days, just like me, you can’t absolutely miss a sailing trip! Everybody knows that the winds are dramatically important here in Garda Trentino, where they have been playing a substantial role since ages.
Our Lake Garda is considered one of the best European regatta fields also thanks to the sailing schools which provide both knowledge and enthusiasm. These outstanding schools (Fraglia Vela – Riva del Garda, Circolo Vela Arco e Circolo Vela Torbole, to name only a few) will guarantee safety for you, offering expertise and fun! Whereas, if you prefer to speed along on your own, pushed by the Ora wind (from 5 to 12 m/s) or the Peler wind (up to 15 m/s), windsurfing is ideal for you! Riva del Garda and Torbole sul Garda are among the most famous places to “scendere il vento” (Italian slang meaning that you sail downwind).
The schools in the Alto Garda area are very important also in this case! We have already run upon scuba diving here, but it’s otherwise worth-mentioning canyoning. If you are among those people who need to feel a shiver running down your spine while practicing a sport, don’t worry: once again, you are definitely in the right place! The creeks running down the mountains are perfect for this sport. But remember, you must practice it with expert guides in devoted canyoning centers; they are real keepers of tracks known only by few people, which you will be able to discover with complete safety (put on the diving suit, the helmet and the harness! Maybe they won’t enhance you, but strong feelings need strong courage… in the outfit, at least!)
Defy the rapids plunged into the wood perfume, between the rocks and pure adrenaline! If water is your second element, close your eyes, choose the water sport which best suits you and launch yourself into the Garda Trentino adventure…watch the video and choose your sport
