For international canoeists, the high altitude training in Val Senales Valley has become an integral component of their training program. With an elevation ranging between 1500 to 3200 meters above sea level, the beautifully landscaped Val Senales Valley offers an ideal training area for canoeists.

The emerald green lake at the Vernago dam (1700 meters above sea level), is about 100 acres in size and offers well-marked circular courses of different lengths. The three-time Olympic champion and multiple world champion, Antonio Rossi, as well as the Austrian women’s national canoe team, have been to Val Senales Valley for high altitude canoe and kayak training.
