What we do
The meeting point is at San Piero a Sieve train station (there are train from Florence train station every 40 minutes), near the lake, where you can have lunch or dinner at the end of activity. You'll learn how to paddle in a cool spot, surrounded by nature, just few km from Florence in the calm water of Bilancino Lake, in the beautiful Mugello valley. The lake is the perfect place for learning SUP. You can enjoy a day on the lake with your friend and family experiencing the wildlife of the lake, only 25 minutes from Florence is located only 5 minutes from the Barberino di Mugello motorway exit along the A1 FI-BO, continuing straight on after the Barberino discount designer shopping mall, in the direction of S. Piero a Sieve.
The excursion lasts 3 hours at slow pace, is suitable for everyone among 12 and 80 years old.
We'll guide you in an excursion on the lake, paddling together along the lake coast, exploring some hidden corner, where we can stop for a swim, a rest, and some snack, fruits and water. During the excursion we'll give you some tips on how to improve your sup technique, suggesting some maneuver or trick you can try with the board during the 3 hours of excursion.
