Slovenia SUP Adventure - 3 days

Small, varied, authentic, green, fairytale-like. These are the words used to describe Slovenia by most travellers who leave this country surprised and in awe of its incredible natural beauty. They appreciate the clean air and water. They admire its charming capital and the scenic view of the old castle, glacial lakes surrounded by snow-capped mountains, crystal clear rivers and enchanting seaside towns. And they almost can’t believe that any part of Slovenia can be reached in a mere hour or two.

A 3 Day Active SUP Tour will see you standup paddling in the most beautiful locations in Slovenia, along with an opportunity to experience other sporting activities and carefully selected sights and culinary treats.

This standup paddle adventure is a perfect choice for travellers who like to actively explore new countries and, of course, for enthusiastic standup paddlers who use every opportunity to enjoy time out on the water and explore the world with a paddle in their hand!

If you love getting to know a new country through local’s eyes, enjoy meeting like-minded active people and you care more about “what to see and do” than just “what to see”, then our programme is right up your street!

Best Activity in Ljubljana - SUP tour
PROGRAMME

DAY 1: ARRIVAL IN LJUBLJANA

Ljubljana is currently the only European capital that offers a relaxed and intimate experience of standup paddling through the very heart of town. We’ll paddle along the Ljubljanica river and experience an interesting view of the fast changing faces of the town. We’ll glide past the tranquil suburban area where we’ll observe the coypus weaving in and out of the water and listen to the excited chatter of birds. Slowly, we’ll take you right into the midst of the urban beauty. We’ll crane our necks to see the impressive Ljubljana castle, admire the Triple Bridge designed by the celebrated architect Joze Plecnik and wave to the mighty dragons that protect both banks of the river.

Ljubljana SUP tour will start in the afternoon at 5PM, so you can arrive to Ljubljana the same day and have a relaxed check-in, get the first impression of Ljubljana on your own. If you arrive a day before, we suggest you start your active sightseeing holidays with bike tour and see the most beautiful parts of Ljubljana with the wind in your hair. In both cases you will have time to walk up to the Ljubljana castle and enjoy the spectacular views over the city and nearby mountains and forests. The only thing left to do after is to sit down to a delicious dinner and watch the town come alive at night.

DAY 2: BLED

After breakfast, we’ll drive towards the North of Slovenia to visit Lake Bled and its famous island in the middle. Standup paddling in the arms of green forest, high cliffs and a little old town is really relaxing and we will see every corner of this crystal clear beauty. In summer, we won’t be able to resist a refreshing dip in the lake and if you like to challenge yourself, we can test your newly acquired skills on an SUP board with sup’fun games. Of course we will make a stop on the Bled island – walk mighty stairways and visit famous Baroque church. We adore the little island also because of the scrumptious chocolate ice cream and and “wishing bell”. Every wish can come true, if you ring the bell on the tower and believe!

After SUP tour you will have some free time to grab a lunch or walk up the steep cliff to visit the Bled Castle. Or maybe even both. After lunch, we’ll head to the narrow Vintgar gorge where the Radovna river shows off its lively pools, rapids and waterfalls.

In the evening, we will return in Ljubljana, where you can discover the culinary delights of Ljubljana or have a dinner with the locals.

DAY 3: PIRAN

On our last day, we’ll drive towards the coast where we’ll standup paddle along high cliffs until the unique little town of Piran will reveal itself from behind the next turn. We’ll wink at the statue of Giuseppe Tartini, say hi to the fishermen putting away their nets after a successful day on the sea, get lost in the labyrinthine streets of this quaint town. After lunch we will paddle back to where we started.

We’ll conclude this perfect day with a train ride through the majestic Postojna cave, which is one of the best-known caves in the world. The train offers an unique adventure in the heart of karst tunnels, passages and galleries. You’ll look for the shiniest white stalagmite called the Brilliant and meet famous human fish.

Where can I leave my stuff?

You can leave your backpack and valuable stuff in Bananaway van, which will be parked in a safe area near the beach.

What should I wear?

Something comfortable, for example a T-shirt and shorts. Swimming suits are a must in summer time.

In spring and autumn it can get a little chilly so we recommend wearing a hoodie or something to keep you warm. The Soča River is quite cold and, just in case, we will give you a short wetsuit.

What should I bring?

We recommend a change of clothes, a towel, comfortable shoes for hiking, a sweater, sunscreen, smile and positive energy!

A bottle of water and some snacks because we will not stop for food until afternoon.

Who will guide a tour?

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.

Who can attend the tour?

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.

What about children?

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.

What happens if the weather is bad?

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.

In case of a bad weather forecast we will try to reschedule the SUP tour to other day or other location. Cancellation and refund policy.
