The unique morphology of the basin, with boulders and white, rocky outcrops, bestows the water with an emerald colour, particular in May and June, when the vegetation on the shores is flooded. Poplars, willows and Alders emerge from beneath the surface, and it can be quite fun to move through them in your kayak. The wealth of marine life is also remarkable. When paddling around, you will likely come across large carps, pikes and perches hiding amongst the vegetation.
After exploring the bay, you can either return to the starting point (about 2km away, or 1 hour) or you can continue (for about 6km, or 3 hours) across the lake to the Gabbianello Natural Oasis, a stretch of land about 10 hectares in size that was established to protect the avifauna and where you can explore on your own or with a guided tour.
