Internet booking for this activity carried out despite bad weather. the meeting point had been changed to allow us to board in better conditions. The pilot gave us a great ride despite the waves.

Very nice round trip on Lake Maggiore to Santa Catarina. Everything about the sights was explained to us, even in German. Kudos to the boatman. It's a great experience!
