In rowing travel circles, this event is legendary. How could it not be? Imagine Venice without motor boats for a morning. Over a thousand rowed or paddled watercraft take to the waters for a 30 km “race”, which begins with a cannon shot from St. Mark’s Square. The route takes rowers through the lagoon to Burano, down to Murano and back along the famous canals to St. Marks to receive a participation medal. Rowers come from around the world, with quads, eights, various Venetian style rowing boats, plus kayaks, canoes, SUPs and anything else that moves forward with oars. Join us for a unique weekend in Venice and claim your Vogalonga story. Everyone has one. This trip is sold out. There is already a waiting list for this trip. However, spaces may open up. If you would like to be added to the list (or get a head start on 2019) please contact us. Read Full Trip Description
