Find a once-mighty fortress worn down by the ravages of time. You will surely be captivated by its unique charm.

You will move to the three famous islets once you cross the river channel and glimpse Lesendro and its bird visitants. As you navigate them, discover breathtaking canals decorated with water lilies and reeds. Take in the lovely scenery of mountain ranges, rugged coastlines, and vast lake.

Fantastic experience
We took the three-hour trip with the kayak, which was just amazing!! The fields of grass and the variety of birds were stunning. We took many pictures, so only go with a fully charged phone! The wind was slightly strong that day, but the waves were still manageable. The people from the rental said in advance that if we take longer, it is acceptable unless we get back before it's dark. Essentials: water, sunglasses, hat/cap, sun cream. You will get a 30L waterproof bag from the rental, but we also had one with us to store our stuff. Total time of the trip: 5 1/2h

Friendly and helpful Kingfisher team and beautiful nature
Welcoming and helpful people, beautiful place, especially the first part. The main lake was quite choppy and hard work for us, so we didn't make it to the islands but could see from a distance! They gave us an extra hour to try! It's worth the money!
