DAY 1 - Ljubljana

Discovering Ljubljana by stand-up paddling through its vibrant centre will give you a one-of-a-kind perspective of the city’s landmarks, including the Ljubljana Castle, the Triple Bridge and Dragon Bridge as well the many other wonderful architectural designs along the colourful banks of the green Ljubljanica River. After our first taste of SUP paddling and a lunch break, we’ll mount our bikes and explore the rest of Ljubljana, stopping off in the great Tivoli Park for some slacklining. Then it’s up to Ljubljana Castle for some views and back in time for dinner and night time merry-making.

DAY 2 - Bohinj & Bled

Next stop is the spellbinding Lake Bohinj, Slovenia’s biggest natural lake. Embellished by majestic Alpine backdrops, this gem of a lake is bang in the middle of Triglav National Park. We’ll stand-up paddle along the most striking part of the lakes’ shore and practice our paddling techniques. After our SUP session, it’s time for a healthy snack to recharge our batteries and get ready for an hour-long hike through the forest up to the 60-metre Savica Waterfall and its smaller cousin a bit further on. Then it’s a quick drive Bled, our new home for a couple of nights.

Waking up next to Slovenia’s most iconic lake, it’s breakfast time and then off to do some SUP yoga, before paddling on the lake and getting inspired by the incredible surrounding and the medieval cliff-perched castle. SUP games are in order, as is a refreshing dip in the lake and a visit to the legendary Bled Island where we’ll ring the wishing bell for luck. The afternoon it’s time to explore Bled, its lovely castle, and admire the phenomenal panorama it offers. After lunch, the splendid Vintgar Gorge awaits, before retiring for well-deserved rest.

Goriška Brda, is known for its endless vineyards, olives and fragrant orchids. We’ll spend the night at a traditional homestead, take a walk among the vineyards and visit a local wine cellar. Tasty culinary treats with high-class wines will end the day nicely.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear on SUP Holidays?

Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting wet. A swimming suit is a must in the summertime, since refreshing dips are practically obligatory. During spring or autumn, we recommend a hoodie or a wind-stopper jacket to keep you warm. The Soča River is quite cold in those months, so if you decide to take a dip, we can provide you with a short wetsuit free of charge.

Who will be our guide?

The SUP Holidays Slovenia are guided by experienced and ASI certified SUP instructors.

Who can attend the SUP Holidays?

The holiday is suitable for people who can swim and are in reasonable physical shape. The tours are not demanding and you need no prior experiences with stand-up paddle boarding. Children are also most welcome to join. Those over 12 years old can join us on their own board, while younger kids can sit on their parent’s SUP board, providing they already have experience in stand-up paddling.

Can I join if I don’t have any SUP experience?

We try to provide the best possible experience on our holidays, so we use very stable Red Paddle Co boards, perfect for beginners or travellers with little experience.

What should I bring with me?

We recommend comfortable sport clothes, swimsuits, a towel, comfortable sport shoes for hiking, a sweater and wind-stopper jacket, sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat / cap.

What happens in the event of bad weather?

We will gladly take you stand-up paddle boarding in sunny or cloudy (dry) weather, but cannot in the event of heavy rain, windy weather or strong river currents. If the weather forecast looks rainy, we will try to reschedule the SUP Holiday to another date or another location.
