Stand up Paddling Blue Lake

CONTACTFAQ

DESCRIPTION

Stand up paddling offers a fun, relaxing way to play on the water. Enjoy this activity on one of the most beautiful karst lakes in Croatia. Learn the legend about the formation of Blue lake near Imotski town and discover why it is possible to play football at the bottom of the lake. After paddling we are taking you to see one of the deepest karst lakes in Europe just nearby, Red lake, that got its name after reddish brown color of the surrounding cliffs. We continue our day towards the spring of Vrljika river near the old mill where you will have traditional lunch prepared under the baking lid. Previous experience or age doesn’t matter since it is very easy to learn. And since you stand at your full height, you can enjoy unique views of beautiful Blue lake.
