SUP TOUR PROGRAM
MEET THE 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 we have to catch the right time when stand up paddling is even possible.
GET TO KNOW THE PADDLE BOARDING BASICS
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 afraid of falling into the water – our survival statistics is 99%! 🙂
EXPLORE THE WILDLIFE. After we help you stand on your own two feet and feel safe, the SUP adventure begins. 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 stunning and stand up paddling is giving us the opportunity to explore it up close and personal.
VISIT ŠKOCJAN CAVES
After an active 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.
VISIT A LOCAL KARST FARM
Vising a local farm with its amazing vine cellar, tasting dried meat products, homemade bread, »jota« stew, sausages, various roasts with side dishes, gnocchi with goulash, vegetables, cooked »štruklji« dough rolls, teran slice etc is your a second option, if you decide to skip the caves.

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.
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.
