We no longer offer private photo shoots. But you have the possibility of booking our Sunrise Experience, which allows you to reserve 2 boats (one for the models and one for the photographer) 4 days in advance and hold your shooting directly on the lake.
Due to the weather forecast being time-limited, earlier booking is not possible.
Since Lake Braies is part of the nature park Fanes-Sennes-Prags, bringing your own boats or stand-up paddle boards is not allowed.
At the beginning of the boat trip, a fixed price of 35.00 EUR for one hour must be paid. If you return after half an hour, you will get a 15.00 EUR refund. This price is per boat, not per person.
1 hour 35.00 EUR
½ hour 20.00 EUR
No, we are not offering reservations. Our rental operates on a first-come, first-served basis.
The only exception is our Sunrise Boat Experience., where you can book a boat in advance for the first trip in the morning (1 hour for 35.00 EUR).
A boat tour on Lake Braies is one of the most popular tourist activities in Italy, so at the height of summer (July and August), you should factor in a wait of up to 1 hour for a boat. Outside of peak season, waiting times may be shorter than that.
Up to 4 adults can go on one boat at Lake Braies.
Children of any age are welcome on boat tours at Lake Braies. All children and young adults under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult during the boat ride. Dogs are also welcome, and normally there are no problems getting on and off the boat or during the trip.
Unfortunately there is no food and drink for purchase at the boathouse itself and there are no toilet facilities. Around the lake you will find several establishments selling food and drink which also have toilets available.
No, unfortunately you cannot hire a kayak or stand-up paddle board at Lake Braies. The boathouse at Lake Braies only rents wooden boats.
If you arrive by car, you can park directly at the lake. There are three car parks that are open around the clock. However, please be aware of the road closure! From 10/07/22 through 10/09/22, the road from Schmieden to the lake will be closed from 9.30 am till 4.00 pm. For more detailed information, please visit the website of the Pragser Tal Tourism Association.
An exclusive experience: Enjoy an early morning wake-up and venture outside for an unforgettable opportunity to go on a boat tour on Lake Braies at the break of dawn. Enjoy the stillness of the water, the reflection of the mountains, the crisp morning air, and the amazing photo opportunity this excursion offers.
During this period, you have the opportunity to book one of our boats for you in advance to ensure a unique experience.
You can reserve a boat in advance for the first trip in the morning at an hourly rate of 35.00 EUR. As the mountainous area does not allow for long-term weather forecasts, we open reservations for our boats no earlier than 4 days in advance. If you are interested in making a reservation, check our website 4 days prior to the desired date to make a reservation.
We kindly ask you to arrive on time for your reserved time slot. If you arrive late, the amount paid in advance will be forfeited.
In summer the Lago di Braies mirrors all colour nuances from green to blue and offers a unique, spectacular background not only for photo shootings but also for film and video recordings at the Lago di Braies.
