Varese’s lakes have produced many champions over the years, and the legendary eights from the IGNIS Rowing Club are a prime example of record-breaking success going back to the 1960s. Since then Varese has continued to turn out first-rate rowers and the sport keeps going from strength to strength: the lake around Schiranna enjoys fantastic weather conditions and is ideal for rowing, which is why teams arrive to train here every month from all over the world.
This same stretch of water is used for some of the world’s most important competitions every year. But the “province of seven lakes” also offers many other locations where rowing enthusiasts can practise their skills. So, whether you are a competitive rower or simply wish to get out on the water and enjoy the fresh air and stunning scenery, the province has the perfect setting for every rowing experience.
