Stand Up Paddling is a water sport in which you stand on a board (SUP board) and use a long paddle to manouver.

Due to the speed of the Aare, the offer is primarily aimed at people with some experience with stand up paddleboards or similar equipment (surfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding etc.).

Children from 10 years can use the paddleboards when accompanied by an adult, each on their own board. There must be at least 1 adult per child in the group.
