Lagoon Flamingos

Who said that the flamingos are located only in Camargue? These friendly wading birds have been stopping in the venetian lagoon and they create picturesque atmospheres in the lagoon.

Flamingos are nothing new in these places: for over a decade, in fact, these birds have been settling in this area. Today there are more than 8,000 flamingos that winter in the lagoon, many of which decide to stop for the whole year. Flamingo are quite confident and frequent “valli da pesca” (a sort of fish farms in the lagoon) and shallows, where they find shallow and muddy waters that they can filter with their particular beak. 


Not only flamingo but a huge number of birds are likely to be seen in the lagoon: In total, around 300 species of birds live in the lagoon. An incredible diversity featuring birds connected to the tides, to the marshy land and to the sea. Ducks (mallards, teals, pintails, wigeons, shovelers), herons, seagulls, waders, shorebirds, even 4,000 flamingoes that would once migrate from Tunisia to France and then to Sardinia, now stably reside in the lagoon and its surrounding area. Or cormorants, reaching Venice from Poland, Sweden or Denmark.

Cycling across the fishing valleys

Cycling around the Venetian Lagoon you will be able to admire the great variety of landscapes that will open before your eyes: lapped by the waters of the Adriatic Sea and of the lagoon, the itinerary will cross breath-taking views... Sand dunes, and vegetable patches in addition to the extraordinary lagoon landscape with its canals, sand banks, mudflats and fishing valleys that form the background to Venice’s spectacular skyline.

A unique ride with a nature and interpretive guide

Visiting the lagoon by bike will allow you to come into contact with the soul of a land where nature has always played a leading role. Land, fresh water and salt water are the three elements that coexist in this territory in a truly unique way.

Under the lead of a nature and interpretive guide, who will provide you with information on the history and the peculiarities of the nature of the area you will cross along the bike tour, you will enjoy a truly unique ride!
