Upcoming Trips

...but remember even small groups can request their own week! 

Email us at any of the links below to find out more!

Tuscany in the Fall means new olive oil, truffles, vino novello, hot chocolate, and the calmness only found when desirable locations are in their off-season. We'll explore everything this season has to offer, from polenta fairs to wine tasting, steaming rowing workouts and small museums. This week is dedicated to the extra indulgences that November has to offer a food lover - the higher cost reflects the top-shelf tastings and restaurants.

Our local youth team has rowers aged 9-18 and is a fun group of about 25 kids who help and encourage each other across the age and gender divide. Italy only allows sculling for our smallest rowers aged 9-13, to make sure their bodies develop in a balanced way, and a way to teach excellent boat skills, impossible to learn in a large boat. We have singles that fit even little 5 foot kids! Email us for planning your kid's experience.
