AN ALTERNATIVE WAY OF EXPLORING 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!

SUP TOUR PROGRAM

LEARN. 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.

EXPLORE. 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, breathe in the majestic views of Bled Castle and continue on to the famous little island which is a must-see!

REFRESH & RELAX. We have some easy balance challenges for you, because we want you to have fun, fun, fun! You can also jump in the water and refresh yourself anytime. Or simply chill out with us in the middle of the lake, lay down on the board and soak up the summer wibe!

REMEMBER. We will make a funny group photos with a GoPro camera, which we will send 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. Our instructors with Slovenian and international licence are well trained, 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!

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.

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?

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.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

A bottle of water, sunscreen, smile and positive energy.

WHO WILL GUIDE THE TOUR?

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.

WHO CAN ATTEND THE SUP 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! 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).

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, 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.
