GEAR TO BRING
You can windsurf at Silvaplana lake with every kind of windsurfing board, though it’s best to leave the wave boards at home! Sail sizes used are mostly between 5.0 and 9.0 m2. The water temperature in the summer is always around 14-15°C., so make sure you bring a good spring/winter wetsuit, recommended thickness is 3-5 mm. You can rent windsurfing equipment at the “Windsurfing Silvaplana” school and centre, which is located next to a campsite and right in front of the lake. www.windsurfing-silvaplana.ch | firstname.lastname@example.org | +41 818289364.
STUFF TO BRING
It can be cold even during summer, especially during the evening, so bring your jackets and some warm clothes. The best way to know what to put in your luggage is to check the forecast a few days before leaving. Since the lake is located at 1800 metres, your skin burns very fast, so make sure to bring a good sunblock. Local currency is euros.
NO WIND ALTERNATIVES
Even if there’s no wind, there are a lot of good action alternatives, like MTB biking, SUP, climbing, hiking, fishing, running, cycling, swimming and horse riding. There’s a cable car right next to the lake that goes up the mountain, it’s a really nice place for those who love to walk in nature and there’s excellent downhill tracks for mountain bikers also.
