TOUR PROGRAM

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 PADDLE-BOARDING

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 cold Soča River. We will give you a short wetsuit and a really large, stable sup board. And just so you know – our survival statistics is 99%!

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.

The many, fast-changing faces of the river and the secrets waiting behind every corner will definitely take you by surprise. You will slowly realize that paddle-boarding is a unique way to observe nature from a different perspective – a truly magnificiant experience!

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 yoga poses on the board!

DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE EMERALD VALLEY

After paddle boarding experience our exploration of the Soča Valley continues with driving through the valley, taking a short hike to the gorgeous Kozjek waterfall, making a quick stop at the Korita Gorge and marvelling at the rock formation “Ajdovska deklica” or the Heathen Maiden before we finally reach the top of Vršič Mountain Pass.

You will spend the entire day in the embrace of the highest Alps in Slovenia 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.

REMEMBER

You will not forget this experience! We will capture special moments with our GoPro camera and send you the photos after the tour!

Ian Read sup on Bohinj lake

On our 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 actual SUP adventure sending on photos and videos afterwards. We particularly enjoyed the Soča valley SUP experience but would also recommend the Ljubljana and Lake Bohinj. It was a great thing to do as a family, we have 2 teenage children and really added to our experience in Slovenia.

What is included in the price?
  • introductory paddle-boarding course;
  • sup equipment (Red Paddle SUP board, paddle, safety leash);
  • professional guide who is an experienced and certified ASI instructor;
  • 2 hours long sup experience on Soca river;
  • transport from Ljubljana;
  • short wetsuit in case you will need one in spring or autumn;
  • memories captured on a GoPro during the stand-up paddle-boarding tour.
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 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.

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.
