Outdoor sports galore

There is a full range of opportunities that you can’t miss! Experience something new and choose from land, water, and air sports. At Lake Santa Croce, famous for water sports activities, you are spoiled for choice. Try whatever you like such as Kitesurfing, Windsurfing, Wing Foil, Wakeboarding, sailing, canoeing, swimming, and fishing.

Water sports

Lake Santa Croce is famous among lovers of sailing sports. The wind generally blows from spring to autumn and is stronger in the spring months when it can easily exceed the speed of 20-25 knots. It is borne by the thermal difference that is created between the mountains above the Alpago plateau to the north and the Veneto Po Valley to the south.

Come and live with us all water activities. You will experience intense sensations and adrenaline adventures.

Sup | Canoeing | Swimming

The lake is calmer in the morning. It is the best time to go for a swim or rent a canoe or a SUP and go to explore the evocative landscape that the lake offers. Rowing among the willows in the naturalistic oasis amid waterfowl and fish is an unforgettable experience you should not miss.

Wakeboarding

On the left side of the beach is a Wake Cable, a two-pylon cable system that you can use to be towed up off the crest while riding a wakeboard.

It is a fun sport that even children can do.

Kitesurfing  | Windsurfing | Wing Foil | Sailing

In the afternoon the wind rises, and Kitesurfing, Windsurfing and Wing Foil colour the body of water in front of the campsite. A section of the beach is dedicated to carrying out these activities with a large space where you can get your gear ready and enter the water. There are Kitesurfing and Wing Foil schools.

Sailing enthusiasts mainly gather on the south shore where the headquarters of the Naval League are located, a sailing centre of excellence that organizes courses, training, and regattas even at the international level.

Fishing

The head office of Alpago fishing basin no. 7 and the boat hire firm are both based halfway around the lake. Here you can purchase fishing permits. In the morning hours, the lake is crammed with fishers and a wealth of large prey such as pike or carp and fish of remarkable gastronomic interest, like royal perch and whitefish, attract a great many enthusiasts.

Canyoning

The Belluno area is known for the large number of streams that have carved themselves into the rock throughout its territory, therefore a popular destination for canyoning lovers. This activity consists in walking down very steep waterways equipped with a wetsuit, rope, harness, and appropriate shoes. The obstacles you have to overcome are waterfalls, rock jumps in natural tanks as well as crossing flooded corridors and slides. It is usually done in groups accompanied by specialized guides. Experience the thrill of reaching Lake Santa Croce descending the canyon in the Val Maggiore. Thought to be one of the most beautiful in the Veneto region, it will remain in your memory forever.

Land and air sports, amidst nature in unspoiled environments

The entire Alpago area offers its guests a pleasant stimulating stay thanks to the different interesting opportunities provided by an extraordinary environment with unspoiled nature. A succession of meadows, woods, hills conveys a sense of freedom and peace.

Come and experience land & air activities with us in an area that will take your breath away.

Mountain Biking

Mountain Bike lovers can leave from the lake and reach the Alpago peaks cycling along roads and paths with different levels of difficulty. For example, the “Alpago Natura” path, over 70 km long, starts from the lower part of the basin and crosses the entire Alpago area. It can be covered in several days because it may be divided into short stretches and is therefore suitable for all types of bikers.

During the summer season, the Nevegal ski area offers a ski lift service to adrenaline lovers who practise downhill mountain biking.
