I never thought to SUP on a river, but it turns out that it’s a fantastic way to see a city from another perspective! So cool that Ljubljana is one of the only cities you can paddle throughout this city centre, and we got some fantastic views and not to mention a fantastic workout! The guide Spela was awesome and taught us some crazy manoeuvres too. Loved it 🙂
SUP tour Bohinj lake
ENJOY BEST SUMMER ACTIVITY AT BOHINJ LAKE!
Lake Bohinj is the largest permanent lake in Slovenia and, in comparison with its neighbour Lake Bled, less known, more remote and immensely tranquil. We will follow the white trails of aeroplanes on our SUPs and observe the snow-capped mountains perfectly reflected in the water.
The SUP tour is the most relaxing way of getting to know the surroundings of Lake Bohinj. But we do have a few fun challenges in store for you that will put a big smile on your face!
In summer, the lake is warm and it will be a delight to take a refreshing dip in the water from our SUP boards!book now
The Bananaway SUP instructors will give you a brief introductory stand-up paddle-boarding course. They will tell you everything you need to know about safe and comfortable SUPing. This means you can join the tour even if you have no previous experience in paddle-boarding.
After we will help you stand on your own two feet and feel safe, the SUP adventure begins. We will glide along the sinuous coast bursting with greenery and stop in the middle of the lake to enjoy a quiet meditation in the embrace of the mighty Julian Alps.
Complete relaxation in the middle of the lake while surrounded by an awe-inspiring nature, games that will challenge your balance and group photos of splashing in the water are the moments that will stay with you long after the tour is over. And we have your photos covered – we will send them to you after the tour!
BEGINNERS CAN START PADDLE-BOARDING IN 10 MINUTES!
It is really easy to start! 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. We are using the best SUP gear on the market, so do not worry about your stability on the board! And just so you know – our survival statistics is 99%.
WE SUP EVERY MORNING!
The SUP tours start every day from Monday to Sunday at 1 PM. The tour must be booked in advance.
If there are several of you but the time table does not fit in with your travel plans, please contact us for a tour tailored to your needs.
MINIMUM NUMBER OF PADDLE-BOARDERS: 2
The SUP tour starts at the Vogel Hostel. The Bananaway SUP spot is just next to the lakeside, so look for a Bananaway instructor dressed in a yellow T-shirt and meet him or her 5 minutes before the tour starts.
After we will meet near hostel Vogel, the SUP instructor will store your backpacks and valuables in the Bananaway van parked in a safe area just next to the hostel.
Just wear something comfortable, for example a T-shirt, shorts and a swimming suit. You never know – you might need a refreshing dip in the water! We will paddle-board barefoot, so we recommend that you come in flip-flops which you can simply put on the SUP board.
In spring and autumn it can get a little chilly so we recommend wearing a hoodie or something to keep you warm. Because the water can be cold, we can lend you a short wetsuit free of charge; just let us know what size you need.
A bottle of water, sunscreen, smile and positive energy.
The SUP Tours are guided by an experienced and 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 wish to wear a life jacket? Just let us know before the tour.
They are welcome, of course! 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.
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.
