Water and beach sports in Comacchio
For those who love sport and are looking for a territory where to practice it
The sea is an important element of this territory and consequently all water sports and those related to navigation are the master.
At the artificial lake of Lido delle Nazioni there is the National Nautical Center of the Italian Naval League where children can enroll in sailing or canoeing courses, to learn to play team sports and have fun in a safe and controlled environment, with qualified instructors.
At some bathing establishments it is possible to rent windsurf boards and take courses with professional instructors.
In recent years, kitesurfing, a water sport that is practiced by being towed by a kite, has also become popular. It is a very spectacular sport that can be practiced in any season and with calm or rough sea and allows suggestive aerial acrobatics. To practice it requires an adequate physical and technical preparation as it is included in the category of extreme sports.
The land and in particular the beaches are the second element that characterizes this territory and there are many sports that can be practiced on its surface.
We have already talked a lot about bike and cycling routes in the biker section, but also running is very popular, thanks to the flat territory of the air adjacent to Comacchio and the Po Delta.
Not to be forgotten is hippotourism, which allows for long horseback rides in the unique natural scenery that only the Po Delta, in all of Italy, can offer.
In the last few years, a new type of sport, nordic walking, has been introduced. This activity is suitable for everyone and is practiced with the use of sticks that allow to exploit the muscles of the lower and upper limbs. Practicing it in a territorial context such as Comacchio makes it an even more unique experience!
For motor lovers, we cannot forget the track for karts, cars and motocross in San Giuseppe di Comacchio.
In addition to the most popular sports, a now institutional event is the IronDelta - triathlon held every year in September at the Lido delle Nazioni and that sees the participants compete in a swimming, running and cycling race.
The straight is 1600 m long and is available for free tests or races that take place all year round. In recent years there have been many visits from important motoring personalities including the multiple MotoGP champion, Valentino Rossi.
