Be the captain of your own boat!

Do you love boating and wish to get the real experience of Lago Maggiore? Are you wondering if it is possible to be the captain of your own boat and cruising around the lake by yourself? The answer is yes! It’s possible to rent your own private boat.

You can rent the private boat not only in Lago Maggiore to adore the three beautiful islands of Isole Borromee but you can also do it in Lago d’Orta and enjoy the charming Isola San Giulio.

Are you ready for a new adventure?

Private boating in Lago Maggiore

Description

Lago Maggiore is a huge lake where there are tons of interesting spots to visit. Apart from the charming little towns around the lake, you should also visit Isole Borromee which consists of three little islands; Isola Bella, Isola Madre, and Isola dei Pescatori.

Isola Bella, an enchanting island where you will get to see the beautiful English garden, while Isola Madre is the biggest island that has a botanical garden and the Borromeo Palace.

And the last one is Isola Pescatori, a medieval village, the smallest and the only inhabited island among the three.

Because it is a big lake and there are so many destinations, one-day boating might not be enough to explore everything. So, you would need to choose what to visit depending on the time you have.

How it works

You need no license to rent a private boat with standard engine power.

You have the option of renting the boat for half a day (either in the morning or afternoon) or full day. The boat rental staff will brief you with some tips and tricks before starting your boating adventure.

Half-day rental would normally cost around 250Euros (petrol included) and also depending on the type of boat you get.

Tips

It is possible to take your dog boating with you. Don’t forget to bring all the necessary safety equipment for dogs such as the life jacket and the right leash.

Not all boat rentals are pet-friendly. Our recommendation is Why Not Bego, a professional and pet-friendly rental based in Verbania, with transparent and fair prices.

Private boating in Lago d’Orta

Description

Lago d’Orta is definitely a smaller lake compared to Lago Maggiore, however, the attractions are not less charming. Apart from the surrounding little towns, the splendid Isola San Giulio in the middle of the lake is a must-see destination.

It is a nice place to stop while you do boating as it has a little road running around called the Way of Silence which leads past ancient villas, walled gardens, and wells and little alleys going down to the calm waters of Lake Orta.

In half day time, you would be able to pay a full visit around the lake.

Our suggestion is to rent the boat in the afternoon and close your day with a glass of wine by the lake.
