There are several means by which you can live Lake Garda from the lake, from the most actives ones such as sailing and kayaking to the most comfortables such as public service navigation or motor boats. Everyone will give you strong emotions and great memories to tell when you will returne home.
The most popular sport is certainly sailing.
From the waters in front of the square of Bogliaco each year depart the major sailing races organized by the famous and historic Circolo Vela Gargnano "Gargnano's sailing club" such as the several international class championships, the Gorla Trophy and the famous Centomiglia.
Nearby the hotel, tourists who want to practice this sport will find sailing schools that organize courses for beginners or advanced and companies that rent sailing and motor boats.

The kayak is the most natural, most athletic and most relaxing way to “amble” through the waters of Lake Garda. Whether coasting the banks or out in the center of the lake, you will be stunned by the beauty of the small towns that can be viewed from the lake.
And every once in a while, to fight off the hot sun, you can stop on one of the beaches to take a refreshing dip.
If you want to see the little towns around the lake, just ask at reception: you can book boat trips along the coast, stopping off at little lakeside hamlets and the most important buildings and locations on the lake, including Bogliaco, Palazzo Bettoni, Villa, Gargnano, Palazzo Feltrinelli, Villa Feltrinelli, San Giacomo Church and the Santella dei Pescatori.
In front of our Hotel we have installed a buoy where you can moor your boat during the day free of charge. During the night is recommended to mooring boats in the ports or in the nautic centers mentioned below, to avoid that violent storms could damage the boat.
We ask you to inform us of your desire to use this service at the time you make your reservation, if you own your own boat, or as soon as you decide to rent one. This will make it easier for us to make arrangements for any other boats.
If you intend to stay over with your boat for several days and need a dry-dock or crane to move your boat, contact the yard Cantiere Nautico Feltrinelli, located just a few steps from the hotel, or the private harbour Marina di Bogliaco. Both facilities will be pleased to meet your every need.

Another way to visit Lake Garda is certainly to take advantage of public navigation. At 600 meters from the hotel is located the passengers boarding to reach the most famous villages of the lake.
If you want to do excursions with your own car it is easy to cross the lake by car ferry between Maderno and Torri del Benaco (Cars boarding 5 km from Gargnano away) and between Limone and Malcesine (Cars boarding 20 km from Gargnano away).
