AN ALTERNATIVE WAY OF EXPLORING PIRAN
1. GETTING TO KNOW STAND-UP PADDLE-BOARDING
Depending on weather conditions, we will start our day on the water either in Portorož or Fiesa. We will take all the beginners through a short introductory SUP course. 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. HAVING FUN ON THE BOARD
When you will feel comfortable on the board, we will paddle past the high cliffs, admire St. George’s church rising above the town in the distance and wonder what awaits us behind the next corner. The view of the town will definitely take your breath away and we will spice up the stand-up paddle-boarding tour with fun and exciting challenges that will definitely put your balance to the test.
3. EXPLORE PIRAN ON YOUR OWN
Then, we will put our paddles down on the beach and take the time to explore the idyllic seaside town of Piran. You will be able to explore Piran on your own, wink at the statue of Giuseppe Tartini, Piran’s most famous inhabitant known as the “first violin of Europe”. You will wander through the small, Venetian-style winding alleys with laundry hanging across the streets. At the church overlooking the town you will be rewarded with a phenomenal view of the Adriatic Sea. Then, full of new impressions, we will return to the embrace of the sea. We will paddle-board back to where we started and drive towards a new adventure – visiting the underground.
4. VISITING ŠKOCJAN CAVES
We will visit the Škocjan caves, a remarkable cave system which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1986. The formations of stalactites and stalagmites are breathtaking and a river flows through the caves that are adorned with innumerable dripstones, curtains and limestone pools. Crossing this river over a bridge is a truly unique experience.
5. CAPTURING MEMORABLE MOMENTS
You can leave your phone on the beach because we will capture the best moments with our GoPro camera and share them with you after the tour. 😉
We recommend this seaside escape to every traveller who loves to explore new sport activities and feel the salty ocean breeze in their hair.
