Zoo Park

Punta Verde Zoo Park

The experience

100,000 square metres of Zoo, immersed amongst nature, are home to more than 200 species of animals!

The Lignano zoo spans over 100,000 square metres between the two banks of the Tagliamento River, in the north west of the peninsula, and is home to more than 1000 animals that belong to around 200 species, including Mammals, Birds and Reptiles.

Zoo Park in Lignano takes care of the animals also through the recreation of the original habitats of the animal hosted in the park, with big attention to the floral species. Together with the native plants you can admire tropical species surviving the local weather thanks to little lakes connected to thermal springs with 30° hot water. In this way even the most exotic animals can live comfortably in the park.

Come and admire them at the Zoo Park in Lignano in a habitat that has been specially designed for their needs: you could spend a relaxing and educational day strolling the pleasant paths, immersed in nature and surrounded by lakes.

Punta Verde Zoo Park also organizes guided tours for classes of Elementary and High schools and laboratories for children.

Marano and Isola delle Conchiglie Excursion

The experience

Visit Marano Lagunare and stop at the Isola delle Conchiglie

Roman in origin, Marano Lagunare reached its peak in the past under the Aquileia Patriarchs. From 1420 to 1797 it was a Venetian fortress for Venice. The architectural structure of the town bears testament to this history.

A stop on the Isola delle Conchiglie is planned for the return. It is a natural barrier that marks the border between the sea and the lagoon where you can admire the, as yet, untouched beach, with the option of going for a swim. An original trip planned with fun in mind, much to the joy of adults and children alike.

From mid-June to mid-September, Monday to Friday, the boat leaves from the Porto Vecchio Dock in Lignano Sabbiadore.

Boat excursions on the Stella River

The experience

Enjoy a boat trip on the Stella River, visit the Bird Oasis and stop at the fishermen's huts.

A boat trip on the Stella River offers an unforgettable and unexpected holiday experience in Lignano Sabbiadoro: take advantage of the opportunity to get away from the lively beaches and into the peace and tranquillity of the Stella River Regional Nature Reserve.

The peninsula of Lignano Sabbiadoro is a strip of land that hides a lagoon rich in biodiversity behind it, full of birds nesting among its placid waters and reed beds. The Stella River is a resurgence river that originates and flows through Friuli Venezia Giulia, opening into the Marano Lagoon and contributing to the uniqueness of this fantastic landscape.

The boat trips on the Stella River organised by various local sailing companies let you delve into a unique and spectacular natural environment that is ideal for birdwatchers: you may even be lucky enough to spot hawks, swans or red, grey and white herons.

A boat trip on the Stella River will also let you discover the most ancient traditions of the Marano Lagoon: the natural mouth of the river is in fact home to a suggestive village of huts. The huts are traditional buildings made of reeds and wood which were used by fishermen in the past as shelter and as their home while fishing in the lagoon in the colder seasons. Some of the boat trips on the Stella River take you directly to the island of huts and let you visit one, perhaps listening to the stories that the older fisherman used to tell around the large fireplace.  

Some of the boat tours include lunches or snacks on board, or even a visit to the famous Bilancia di Bepi, a fishing shelter located at the mouth of the Stella River that is famous for having hosted Ernest Hemingway, who loved to go hunting in these areas.

An unforgettable trip that will leave you wanting to come back again and will let you discover a little-known side of Lignano Sabbiadoro.
