Activities and attractions

Whilst we are delighted if you want to sail and windsurf with us every day of your holiday, there are also lots to see and do away from the Lake and places to visit nearby. Most are within 30 minutes drive from our base at Navene, near Malcesine. Many of these can be booked on the day but reservations may be needed in July and August

Europa Holidays do not manage the following activities but can provide you with all the information you need and assistance with travelling to or from the venues.

Gardaland, Caneva, Siora Veronica, parascending, canyoning, climbing, ‘vie ferrate’ …
Great childrens outing to Gardaland theme park

Gardaland Resort 

Gardaland is one of the largest theme parks in Europe and is situated at the southern end of the lake. It has many spectacular rides as well as themed villages and activities for small children and teens as well as adrenalin-junkies.

During the summer months it is open until late in the evening so everyone can enjoy the rides.

SeaLife aquarium at Gardaland

Sealife Aquarium

For those seeking entertainment and education there is the Sealife Aquarium on the same resort site as Gardaland.

Canevaworld Acqua Park

For those who like their thrills in a swimming costume, the Canevaworld Acqua Park has slides and rides to test the strongest nerve.

It includes the highest ‘Stuka’ slide in Europe – suffice it to say there are many who climb the steps to ride it before deciding that ‘discretion is the better part of valour’.


On the same site as Caneva, there is Movieland and visitors can buy day-tickets for one or both attractions.
