Program

Day 1: Ljubjana

Ljubljana is currently the only European capital that offers a relaxed and intimate experience of stand up paddling through the very heart of town. You will paddle along the Ljubljanica river and experience an interesting view of the fast changing faces of the town. You will glide past the tranquil suburban area where you will observe the coypus weaving in and out of the water and listen to the excited chatter of birds.

Slowly, Bananaway will take you right into the midst of the urban beauty. You will crane the necks to see the impressive Ljubljana castle, admire the Triple Bridge designed by the celebrated architect Joze Plecnik, and wave to the mighty dragons that protect both banks of the river. After the morning SUP tour and a light lunch, you will mount your bikes and see the most beautiful parts of Ljubljana with the wind in your hair.

Together with Bananaway, you will make a stop in Tivoli Park and test your balance on a slackline. For a treat, you will walk up to the Ljubljana castle and enjoy the spectacular views over the city and nearby mountains and forests. The only thing left to do after is to sit down to a delicious dinner and watch the town come alive at night.

Day 2: Bohinj and Bled

Then, you will go to Lake Bohinj, the biggest natural lake in Slovenia in the heart of Triglav National Park. The mysterious, almost 11-kilometer long lake, embraced by mighty mountains shall never fail to take your breath away. You will stand-up paddle along the most striking part of the coast and try to work on a correct paddling technique.

The highlight of every trip to Bohinj is when you reach the deepest part of the lake, lie down on your boards, name the peaks of Julian Alps, and observe the lines left behind by airplanes in the sky. After the SUP session, you will have a healthy snack to recharge your batteries.

Then, you will be ready for an hour-long trek through the forest paths and stone steps to Savica waterfall which bursts from the underground of the Triglav Lakes Valley and comes cascading down 60 meters into the deep pool below.

Another smaller waterfall also falls 25-meter deep and France Prešeren, the most famous Slovene poet, chose the waterfall for his epic poem entitled Krst pri Savici (Christening at Savica). Then, you will drive towards the town of Bled where you will base yourself for two nights.

Day 3: Bled and Vrsic

You will wake up right next to the lake and take time to enjoy Bananaway’s morning coffee. After breakfast, you will do the sun salutation on your SUP boards to stretch your muscles and then go for SUP sightseeing. You will paddle towards the center of town, enjoy the views of cliffs and the old castle, challenge each other with SUP games, take a refreshing dip in the lake, and visit the iconic island in the middle of the lake.

You will see the pilgrimage church dedicated to the Assumption of Mary, ring the bells and make a wish, and treat yourself to the best natural ice cream in Bled. In the afternoon, you will walk around the Bled castle and admire the spectacular views over the lake and mountains. After lunch, you will venture into the narrow Vintgar gorge where the Radovna river shows off its lively pools, rapids, and waterfalls.

Day 4: Soca Valley, Goriska Brda

Early morning, you will continue your path towards the Upper Soča Valley. You will be able to appreciate the beauty of this striking emerald river along the way and stop by in the Most na Soči village. You will SUP under the bridge that gave name to the village, follow the railway tracks, and paddle towards the narrow valley of Idrijca river. Most na Soči is Bananaway's favorite paddle board destination and it is bound to become one of yours also.

After the SUP adventure, you will head towards the rolling hills with a pleasant Mediterranean atmosphere. Goriška Brda, the most western part of Slovenia, is known for its wines, olives, and fruit, and the road will take you past many castles and white churches. You will spend the night at a traditional homestead, take a walk among the vineyards, and visit the wine cellar in the evening.

You must taste local food that combines subtle Mediterranean influences with strong continental tastes - home-made sliced meats, rolled dumplings (struklji), polenta, pasta, delicious Brda olives and olive oil and, of course, a glass of finest local wine. Brace yourself for a delightful, local culinary experience.

Day 5:Piran and Postojna Cave

On your last day, you will drive towards the coast where you will SUP along high cliffs until the unique little town of Piran will reveal itself from behind the next turn. Give a wink at the statue of Giuseppe Tartini, say hi to the fishermen putting away their nets after a successful day on the sea, get lost in the labyrinthine streets of this quaint town and, after lunch, SUP back to where you started.

You can spend the afternoon relaxing at the beach or, if you have enough energy to visit another spectacular natural monument of Slovenia, Bananaway can take you to the Postojna cave. It is one of the world’s largest karst monuments with almost 24 kilometers of passages and limestone formations and it is the only cave with a railway.

The network of tunnels and caverns decorated with ancient formations seems to go on forever. You will look for the most striking stalagmite of the cave called The Brilliant, which is an estimated 100,000 years old, and the famous, if a bit unusual, olm, a blind amphibian which has become a symbol of the cave.

So, if you love getting to know a new country through local’s eyes, enjoy meeting like-minded active people and you care more about “what to see and do” than just “what to see”, then this program is right up your street!

You will also paddle part of the 40-kilometre long Slovenian coastline in the southwestern part of the country. But, it is not all about stand up paddling.
