If you’re already an enthusiast of the sport or just want to explore a new country in a unique way, coming to SUP in Slovenia is the best decision you can make.
Our SUP tours in Slovenia offer you an exciting opportunity to see the country from a different perspective and explore it off the beaten path — literally!
Slovenia is a small and very diverse country. This is not just a plus for regular vacationers but also for those who join us for stand-up paddling. It offers tons of distinct water sceneries — emerald rivers, alpine lakes, dreamy seaside, and even some caves. Each day can be a different SUP experience.
Because standup paddleboarding is not just one of the greenest water sports, it’s also a relaxing way to get some whole-body exercise. It increases your overall strength and is a great way to burn calories.
Whoever said one cannot discover Slovenia in its entirety on a paddle board has not experienced our Slovenia SUP tour yet. From the Julian Alps to the Adriatic Sea, the lakes in the Notranjska region to the rivers in the Dolenjska region — you can literally SUP your way over Slovenia.
Due to an abundance of Slovenia SUP options, we craft the holidays entirely depending on your wishes and preferences. That includes the stand-up paddle locations, the pace of the tour, and its length.
We will ensure that everything runs smoothly and that the days your private group spends paddle boarding in Slovenia remain hassle-free.
Our certified SUP guide will be with you every row of our guided tour and acquaint you with the surroundings. And if you opt for a self-guided holiday, you will receive an extensive personalized written guide so you will not miss anything along the way.
We also take care of accommodations and transportation between places, provide you with all stand-up paddle gear, and offer you a chance at additional activities during your free time.
And to make things even better, our tours commemorate your wanderings around different regions in Slovenia with delicious cuisine. We find the best local restaurants at each place you visit so that your taste buds join the other sense organs in exploring our country.

Deemed the Slovenian Alpine jewel, Bled’s stunning charm alone makes this trip to the outskirts of the Julian Alps worth it. Visiting with a SUP makes the experience even more adventurous. You can paddle to the tiny island in its middle and take your board under the mighty Bled Castle. After a day well spent, you can also feast on the luscious Bled Cream Cake.
Soča River is a national treasure, winding through a narrow valley from the heart of the Julian Alps toward the south. Its current is mostly too strong for paddle boarding, but around the Most na Soči town, the river widens and slows down. SUP is one of the most popular activities on that spot, either upriver, downriver, or up the tributary Idrijca River.
Only a short drive from Bled, Lake Bohinj will offer you an incredible SUP experience in the heart of the Triglav National Park. Larger than Lake Bled, it serves as a great exercise and is usually less crowded. You can paddle to its water source, the Savica River, and later visit its spring, the Savica Waterfall.
Ljubljanica River takes you through the heart of Ljubljana’s Old Town, below its many bridges, and past the cobbled streets. The water is calm and rapid-free, making it possible to paddle upstream through the city to discover it from a different perspective. You can combine the SUP trip with a city tour, a restaurant visit, or any other activities Ljubljana offers.
The Slovenian coast offers different SUP options, with the Piran peninsula being its highlight. You can start the trip on the beach between Fiesa and Piran, make your way around the cape to the Sečovlje Salt Pans, and return to the enchanting town for a walk amid the narrow streets, inspired by Venetian architecture.
Lake Cerknica is the largest intermittent lake in Europe and the biggest Slovenian lake when full. It is booming with wildlife, including 276 bird species and 45 mammal species. Due to this, it is also protected as a Natura 2000 site. Surrounded by pristine nature, paddling there is almost a meditative experience. We can only visit it in early spring or fall to enjoy sufficient water for paddle boarding.
Krka River is another SUP secret of the Dolenjska region. Similarly to Kolpa, the current does not pose any challenge and allows you an enjoyable paddle board adventure. The highlight comes in the shape of paddling around the idyllic Kostanjevica village, which lies on a small island encircled by the river.
Kolpa is the border river between Slovenia and Croatia. The river current is calm, especially in its lower part, which allows you to relax and enjoy the view of both countries, one on each side. You can SUP through the Kolpa Canyon and delight in the peaceful surroundings, as Kolpa is a hidden treasure.
If you’re looking for an active way to explore nature and discover new places, our SUP tours are your perfect choice. Paddling, sightseeing, and trying local cuisine will help you stay active and fit even during your time off. Moderate physical activity in pristine natural surroundings will help you relax and recharge. In addition to paddling, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to try additional activities while here.
You must know how to swim for these tours, though.
We adapt everything to your pace and skills. You won’t have to do anything you don’t feel comfortable doing. If you’re new to stand-up paddling and want to join our tour, we recommend that you take a brief introductory lesson at the first location. If you have average motor skills, this lesson should give you the basics of stand-up paddling, including straight paddling, turning, and stopping on still and moving water.
We provide you with a paddle board, a paddle, and a leash. Lifejackets are also available for anybody who wants to use one.
You can also bring your SUP equipment if you feel more comfortable.
While paddling, we recommend you wear neoprene shoes, a sun-protective shirt (lycra), a hat or cap, and hydration gear (something handy, like a hydration bladder). In case of bad weather, we also advise sufficient waterproof clothing to wear over your other clothes.
We try to find the perfect fit for you among our trusted accommodation providers. The availability varies during the high season, and we wish to hear your wishes first. We do our best to find the best solution for you.
The conditions are optimal from April to October, and you should try to visit sometime during these months. You can also check out the approximate weather forecast on our page. But there is always unpredictability present when it comes to weather, and it can quickly turn for the worse. Paddling remains possible unless it gets extreme, though.
