SUP TRAVEL ADVENTURE THAILAND
The SUP trip to Thailand is one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences that will take your breath away. More than once. When your friends will be swaddled in duvet jackets and observe their breath being condensed into mist, you will be able to spend the winter on a tropical beach with temperatures reaching at least 30°C, drinking thick mango juice under a coconut tree, indulge in Thai massage, dip your feet in crystal clear water full of colourful fish, and, above all, have the opportunity to explore the beautiful Thailand in an authentic, non-commercial way!
And do not worry – you will not have to pick up your paddle every day. We will also venture on short treks, taste local delicacies, and bathe in the sun next to heavenly blue sea!
SUP TRIP PROGRAMME
BANGKOK will be our starting point and it is where we will soak up the pulse of the city, visit vibrant temples, indulge in a massage, do some quick shopping, and taste local culinary delights. Bangkok will make an impression on you and entice you to also put on your party shoes!
What follows is an »OFFLINE EXPERIENCE« because we will unplug completely from the modern world and rather connect to a very special WiFi called Pristine Nature.
We will wake up in simple Robinson-style bamboo huts floating on a lake. Our morning refreshment will be only one jump from the pier away. We will head off on SUP expeditions to the most exciting corners of the natural park, familiarize ourselves with local ecosystems, paddle along picturesque limestone cliffs, sail for an evening safari in the traditional Thai longtail boat, and observe wildlife in the jungle from a distance.
We will also put our two feet firmly on the ground and trek through the jungle to the highest peak revealing a stunning vista of the lake. An experienced local guide will accompany us on the trek but you can always decide to skip it and instead relax by the lake.
We will continue our journey along the coast, spending a few days in KRABI and then the PHI PHI ISLANDS.
We will take you to the most gorgeous beaches, sailing along the high cliffs and overhangs and trying to guess what hides behind the next corner. We will explore intriguing caves and refresh ourselves in the sea. And after the tour is over for the day, we will sit down for a well deserved cold beer. The things that we will throw in the mix are also relaxing sessions and morning stretches on our SUPs as well as two day trips with the longtail boat to a location which we will find most interesting.
What is most important is that we will try to avoid large groups of tourists to the best of our ability and experience Thailand in our own, very active style.
We cannot promise that we will be completely on our own but we can guarantee that the adventure will make a special impression on you.
WHAT KIND OF ACCOMMODATION CAN YOU EXPECT?
Types of accommodation will vary considerably – from double rooms in three or four stars resorts, standard bungalows on the beach, and simple bamboo huts in the middle of the jungle. We have endeavoured to find the accommodation that best suits our SUPing needs and locations we want to visit. It is important to us that the accommodation is neat and clean but you have to be aware that its style might be different when travelling in Asia.
WHO CAN ATTEND THE SUP TRIP TO THAILAND?
Anyone who has at least a little experience with SUPing and can paddle around 5 to 10 km a day can attend the SUP trip to Thailand.
This distance is only indicative and can be easily reached when travelling along such an exciting and striking coast. The time (and kilometres) simply flies! And we will not only paddle – we will also stop in beautiful bays, snorkel, meditate amidst gentle undulations of the sea, and soak in the sunsets.
COMBINATION OF SUPING AND OTHER ACTIVITIES
The trip is SUP-oriented but we will not SUP each and every day. Many other activities are included in the programme, such as visiting temples, seeing Thai boxing, and trekking to viewing points, as well as a rest day or two that you can spend in any way you like.
If you do not trust your SUP abilities 100%, you can join a Introductory SUP Course, before the trip and a certified instructor with the SUP Instructor Level 2 licence will make sure you brush up on your skills.
TRAVELLING TAILORED TO THE NEEDS OF AN ACTIVE EXPLORER
If you are a born curious explorer, like to spend your free time actively, are in love with nature and summertime, crave new cultural experiences, appreciate familiarizing yourself with local lifestyle, and do not shy away from good and energetic company, then we welcome you warmly into our midst!
Through paddle boarding, you will explore a new country with a relaxed and positive atmosphere. So do not forget to pack your good mood! The trip is intended for a small group of 8-10 travellers.
