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. MEETING WILDLIFE RESORT
We will start our active day at Cerkniško lake, an important wildlife resort especially as a nesting place for many bird species. Cerknica lake is intermittent lake, so the level of water is changing and so we have to catch the right time, when stand up paddling is even possible. We will glide over the calm lake, between water lilies and flooded fields. We will listen to wonderful songs of the small birds and get lost in the wild natural park. The nature is stuning and stand up paddling is giving us the opportunity to explore it up close and personal.
3. VISITING ŠKOCJAN CAVES
After an active and fun morning on SUP we will follow our path towards the Škocjan Caves, a remarkable cave system, which have been UNESCO world heritage list since 1986. The most important underground phenomenon in the Karst region will overwhelm you with it's diverse stalactite and stalagmite formations and limestone pools.
4. VISITING LOCAL KARST FARM
Vising a local farm, it's vine cellar, tasting Dried meat products, homemade bread, »jota«, sausages, various roasts with side dishes, gnocchi with goulash, vegetables, cooked »štruklji«, teran slice etc is your a second option, if you decide not to go in caves.book now
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 town of Piran 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 and towel. If you plan to visit the Škocjan caves, wear comfortable shoes and a sweater. We also recommend a change of clothes, smile and positive energy.
The SUP tours are guided by an experienced 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! 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 or strong 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.
