VISIT SOČA VALLEY. The Soča Valley is a jewel of Slovenia and a must-see for outdoor enthusiasts. The Emerald River flowing through it will undoubtedly take your breath away! It is hardly surprising that the famous Slovenian poet Simon Gregorčič wrote a poem about it.
LEARN TO PADDLE-BOARD. The SUP tour starts with an introductory briefing on paddle-boarding and instructions on how to stand on the board, so you can join even, if you have no prior experiences. With our help, beginner can paddle in 10 minutes.
EXPLORE. After you gain your balance and confidence on the board, the real fun begins. We will glide under the famous bridge and experience a true paddle-boarding paradise! Bridges, canyon, cliffs and rocks are creating a very interesting playground and the best sup location in Slovenia.
HAVE FUN ON THE BOARD. It's not only about paddling. Crystal clean Soča and Idrijca river will make you wanna jump in and refresh yourself and even try some ballance challenges and yoga poses on the board!
DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE EMERALD VALLEY. After the tour we will drive through the valley, take a short hike to the gorgeous Kozjek waterfall, make quick stop at the Korita Gorge and marvell at the rock formation “Ajdovska deklica” or the Heathen Maiden before we finally reach the top of Vršič Mountain Pass.
MEET THE ALPINE HIGHLANDS. We will stop at traditional alpine cabin and taste traditional dishes, such as “ajdovi žganci” or buckwheat porridge, goulash with polenta, apple or sweet cottage cheese strudel, “potica” the Slovenian sweet bread etc. On the way back to Ljubljana, we will be treated to a beautiful display of sunset-kissed mountains, Škrlatica and Špik.
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.
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.
On recent trip to Slovenia we booked 3 SUP tours with Bananaway and would highly recommend them as a company. All the instructors were great and worked hard to make our SUP experience really memorable. Their communication was great both before, during and after the SUP adventure sending on photos and videos afterwards. We particularly enjoyed the Soča valley.
We had really fun time with Spela and Iris exploring Lake Bled, Most na Soci and Ljubljana city centre. We learned some new skills while experiencing Slovenia's emerald-green and crystal clear waters on a SUP board. Both Spela and Iris are really nice and professional instructors. Thanks for the great days we had! 🙂
