Great tour! Amazing picturesque location. Friendly instructors and all the equipment is in perfect condition. They make photos with their Go Pro camera- so no worries about pictures. They are flexible with routes- within 2 hours you paddle around the lake and make a stop on the island in the middle of it. Relaxing and has much fun. Not dangerous, easy and if you don't want to swim you may not because board is very very stable. We were on this tour at +19'C cloudy, I was in a sort of a light pullover over bikini and it was great! Highly recommended!

AN ALTERNATIVE WAY OF EXPLORING BLED
1. GETTING TO KNOW THE ACTIVITY
The SUP tour starts with an introductory briefing on paddle-boarding and instructions on how to stand on the board. In the introductory course, you will get to know the SUP gear, paddle-boarding techniques and learn step by step how to find your balance on the board. Do not be scared of falling into the water – our survival statistics is 99%!
2. HAVE FUN ON THE BOARD
When you will feel comfortable on the board, we will paddle past the high cliff, take pictures of the medieval castle in the background, have fun playing games on our SUPs, take a refreshing dip in the lake (you will not be able to resist jumping in, trust us!), paddle towards the island and climb the stairs with the enthusiasm of a groom carrying his bride.
We will make a short stop on the island and savour the best ever natural ice cream. There will also be enough time to see the church and ring its bells. You never know, your wish might come true.
3. EXPLORING BLED ON YOUR OWN
After the paddle-boarding tour you will have time to explore Bled on your own. We will provide you with local tips about other things to do besides visiting the Bled castle.

The SUP Tours are guided by an experienced and ASI certified SUP instructor. Because we are trying to provide an all-inclusive and pleasant stand-up paddle-boarding experience, we use very stable Red Paddle Co boards that are perfectly suited for beginners or stand-up paddle-boarders with little experience.
The sightseeing SUP tours are not physically demanding and are suitable for anyone who knows how to swim, even without any prior knowledge of stand-up paddle-boarding.
Do you need life vest? Just let us know prior the tour.
They are welcome, of course! They simply adore stand-up paddle-boarding!
Children over 12 years of age can join us on their own SUP board, whereas younger kids can sit at the front of their (experienced) parent’s board where they will enjoy the experience as much as if they were holding the paddle themselves.
For their safety, children will wear life jackets.
Ensuring the safety of paddle-boarders is our number one priority. We can take you paddle-boarding in sunny and cloudy weather, but not in case of heavy rain, river current or wind.
If due to a bad weather forecast the SUP tour cannot be rescheduled for the afternoon or next day, we will give you a full refund. Cancellation and refund policy.
