Mother nature and some amazing architects lend the background for this beautiful adventure. And, I cannot think of a better way to experience Lake Bled than standing on a paddle board with the folks from Bananaway. Our guide was wonderful! She was an excellent communicator before our trip and made me comfortable bringing our boys along (11 yo twins). We were all first-timers and her patience was golden. Of all the adventures we did during this trip (toboggan rides, bike tour, beer walk), this was the family favorite. The views speak for themselves. Stunning. Purely stunning. I cannot wait to come back to paddle again with Iris. Next time... the Soca River.

HAVE FUN WITH PADDLE BOARDING GAMES AT LAKE BLED!
Expect only a very fun or totally relaxing paddle boarding session on lake Bled! And spectacular views of the Bled castle with exploring the tiny island in the middle of the lake, which is one of the most attractive and visited tourist sights in Bled. You could always take the traditional Pletna boat ride to the island but if you are looking for something new and exciting, join us for a stand-up paddle-boarding tour!
Absolutely brilliant day hosted by spela today! A trip to lake bled, learned how to paddle board, visited the castle and the gorge, top marks! Thank you very much! X
You will be able to participate in an almost effortless sport activity, enjoy spectacular views of the Bled castle, sip coffee in Villa Bled or Tito’s teahouse and visit the island. And the best part of the tour is taking a refreshing jump off the board and into the crystal clear water in the middle of the lake, meeting like-minded, active people and have fun with games that will put your balance to the test!book now
AN ALTERNATIVE WAY OF EXPLORING BLED!
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 help you stand on your own two feet and feel safe, the SUP adventure begins. We will paddle-board together to the middle of the lake, take in the majestic views of Bled Castle and continue on to the famous little island which is a must-see!
Complete relaxation in the middle of the lake 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%.
But you can always take the plunge and jump in the water on your own initiative!
WE PADDLE EVERY DAY!
Monday to Sunday at 10 AM and 4 PM. The tour needs to be booked in advance.
If there are several of you but the time table does not fit in with your travel plans, contact us for a tour tailored to your needs.
MINIMUM NUMBER OF PADDLE-BOARDERS: 2
The SUP tour starts at Velika Zaka bay. The Bananaway SUP spot is on the left side of the bay (facing the lake). Just look for the Bananaway beach flag and meet our instructor 5 minutes before the tour starts.
Are you staying in Bled? You can walk alongside the lake which will take you around 20 minutes.
Are you staying in Ljubljana? You can rent a car and leave it in the parking area. Alternatively, you can also book our half day SUP tour from Ljubljana!
You can leave your backpack and valuable stuff in Bananaway van, which will be parked in a safe area near the beach.
Swimming suits are a must in summer time. You can also wear a t-shirt, shorts, or something comfortable.
We will paddle-board barefoot but for walking around the island, we recommend taking flip flops.
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 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 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.
For extra safety children get life saving jackets (please let us know, which size do they need).
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, strong wind or river current.
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.
