If you’re strolling down the streets of Europe’s cutest capital and are feeling adventurous, you’ll be glad to learn there’s another awesome route you could take to admire Ljubljana’s wonderful allure, and that it’s called the Ljubljanica River. Difficult to pronounce and impossible not to admire, the river that winds its way through the centre of town has witnessed the entire history of Ljubljana and its people. Legend has it, Jason and the Argonauts ventured down the Ljubljanica to fight the local dragon. Like the ancient Greek adventurers, you too shall do battle on the river, but instead of a dragon, your adversary will be your own sense of balance.That’s right, we’re talking about paddle-boarding Ljubljana on a SUP and through its centre. You’ll be able to see the sights, get some insider knowledge and do a bit of exercise as you pass by the lovely architecture lining the banks of the river.

Never stood on a SUP board before? No worries, this urban paddling tour starts with a quick crash course during which beginners will be able to pick up the basics within 10 minutes. Then the fun begins!

Gorgeous willow trees will pass you by as you traverse down the Ljubljanica and make your way to the world-famous Triple Bridge and the Dragon Bridge, one of Ljubljana’s historic symbols. You’ll be introduced to all the landmarks, hear a few interesting anecdotes about the city and Slovenian culture, as well as receive quite a few useful tips on which bars or restaurants to try while in town.

To spice up your SUP ride, you can engage in fun balance-related games, or simply relax, drift down the river, and watch local life passing by. How about snapping a few memorable pics on the way? We’ll do that for you with our GoPro camera and share the photos with you after the tour.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a single traveller, how can I book?

Don’t worry, just drop us a line in our inbox. We will do our best to try and find you some company, so if you are flexible in your travel dates, let us know as well. Do you want a private trip? No problem, we got you covered too.

What should I wear for SUP Ljubljana ?

Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind if getting wet (wear bathing suit if you decide to take a dip). You will be paddling barefoot and we recommend you bring flip-flops that you can take on your board. During the spring or autumn we recommend a hoodie or a windstopper jacket to keep you warm. The river is colder in those months, so if you decide to take a dip, we can provide you with a wetsuit free of charge.

How many people will be in a group?

We believe that your experience will be better if the group is smaller, so there will be max 8 adults per guide.

Who will be our SUP guide?

All of our guides are experienced and certified SUP instructors.

What should I bring with me?

You don't need much stuff with you, your belongings will be safe in the van at the starting point location. Bring water bottle, sunscreen and your smile.

What in case of bad weather?

We will gladly take you stand-up paddle boarding in sunny or cloudy (dry) weather, but cannot in case of heavy rain, windy weather or strong river currents.

Am I fit enough for the tour?

The tour is suitable for people who can swim and are in reasonable fitness condition. The tour is not physically demanding and you need no prior experiences with stand-up paddle boarding.

Children are most welcomed. Those over 12 years old can join us on their own board and younger kids can sit on the SUP board of their parents, if they already have experiences with stand-up paddling.

I liked this experience, it gives a glimpse of Ljubljana from another perspective. It was only 4 of us and that made it more private and special. Everything well-planned and pleasant.
Aida Gholami
I had no stand-up peddling experience before. They explained everything and soon I was feeling great on the board. Our guide was proffesional and talkative also explained a lot about Ljubljana along the way. Thank you.
