After booking your stay at our hotel surrounded by greenery, how about adding to the dose of nature with an itinerary through valleys and farmhouses?

On the occasion of the mid-August, ATN Laguna Sud has packaged a full day excursion including boat transport, a guide, lunch, and a walk to the “Giarona”. But let’s go in order.

15 minutes before departure, you and the other adventure participants will meet in Valle Cornio – S.S. Romea, 17, at the resort of Lova. Parked the car you will board a boat that, from the Cornio Canal, an ancient branch of the river Brenta, he’ll lead you to Valle Zappa. Here you will have the opportunity to admire its famous Dutch style cottage and you will be amazed to see how its northern European architecture is in perfect harmony with the surrounding fauna and flora.

After the external visit of the house and its tower, the navigation will resume in the direction of Valle Figheri to admire the Torre della Padovana from the boat. During the excursion, there will be an expert guide who will show you everything that will be shown to your eyes. Get ready to live an intense day of nature, culture, and… good food!

For lunch, we will in fact make a stop at the well-known shed “La Pettegola”, in a suggestive and unique environment. Immersed in a still unknown area of Valle Averto, there is a typical stilt once used for processing mussels. Located in front of the charming cottage of Valle Zappa and surrounded by the characteristic velme and barene, it will offer you a unique and unforgettable experience.

In a place where nature reigns supreme, we guarantee that your lunch will taste even more intense! While in the distance you will see ancient ruins of old houses, your palate will be delighted by delicious local recipes. Let’s see together what we will taste on 15th  August…

After enjoying a good lunch with friends, we will explore the Giarona with a naturalistic tour through its shady canals and beautiful lakes, an area with enchanting vegetation where birdlife takes refuge. If you have already visited the nearby oasis of the WWF you will immediately notice the characteristics and the differences between the two areas and the species that live there. 

Between a green view and the other, the guide will tell you about the Giarona, once used as a semi-intensive breeding of valuable fish: today there is still breeding and fishing fish following the various stages and techniques of aquaculture.

The added value of the experience organized by ATN Laguna Sud is precisely the guide, a competent and prepared person who will accompany you on land and on board: both during the walk and in the navigation, will show with precision of detail the particularities of the lagoon and the fishing valleys and will enchant everyone present with stories and ancient legends of local hunting and fishing.
