ADDA – LEONARDO’S RIVER

The trip starts from the bay of Olginate, on the small homonymous  lake  just south of Lecco. This is where the lower tract of the Adda river begins.

We will follow this wide and calm river along its woody banks, where a large variety of birds live and nest every year. Passing silently with the kayaks we’ll have the opportunity to see all the river wildlife.

The trip will pass through Brivio, a very colourful village built on the river bank, and then down to Imbersago, where we’ll find the a reconstruction of the boat built by the great Leonardo da Vinci, used to cross the river.
