The Best SUP Holiday Destinations in Europe

The beauty of travelling with a campervan is that you can reach countless SUP spots for a weekend getaway or be on the road for several weeks. Longer trips with a campervan and SUP board take you to the sunshine and the ocean. Find out the top 9 SUP holiday destinations in Europe below:

Travelling Through Europe with a SUP Board and Motorhome

Explore your home country or fly to your dream holiday destination and rent a motorhome there. Either way, there are lots of beautiful places to discover all over Europe that are waiting to be explored on a SUP board.


Head for the Baltic Sea in the North of Germany and paddle out to sea on the SUP board on calm days with little swell. In the south, there are plenty of beautiful lakes to discover. A real SUP hot spot is Lake Chiemsee in Bavaria.


The Alps beckon with crystal-clear mountain lakes. Not all of them are accessible by motorhome, but Lake Wörthersee and the many lakes around Salzburg are ideal for a summer road trip and camping holiday.


The SUP trend has barely established itself on the west coast of Italy. On the east coast, however, it is booming. You can go stand-up paddling all on the smooth Adriatic Sea and explore the bays, beaches and canals on your board, especially around Lignano. Want to combine a city break with your SUP road trip? Visit Venice and book a guided SUP tour of the city.


The Atlantic coast of France belongs to the surfers. If you want to paddle on the ocean here, you have to be able to ride waves with a Stand-Up Paddle Board. On the other hand, the Mediterranean is calm with warm water, and the beautiful bays are excellent for paddle boarders. The Corsica island is also nearby which is a real SUP paradise.


The entire Croatian coast is SUP-friendly and definitely worth a road trip. The bays of Mali Losinj are especially popular among campers because there are two campsites open all year round so you can go on Stand Up Paddle tours even outside the high season.


Like France, you can choose between the Atlantic coast and the Mediterranean coast in Spain. In the north around Bilbao, experienced SUP surfers can enjoy waves, whereas, in the Mediterranean South, beginners and relaxed stand-up paddlers can enjoy the warm, calm Mediterranean Sea. There are also plenty of opportunities for stops on the SUP road trip thanks to numerous rivers.


Greece offers several SUP spots worth visiting on the mainland or off the many enchanting Greek islands. One of the highlights is the Peloponnese where you can camp and paddle in peace outside the busy summer season in Autumn and Spring.

Czech Republic

Prague is the place to be if you fancy a city break but also want a SUP board holiday. Here you don’t have to make any compromises and can paddle across the Vltava to the city centre and camp on the outskirts.


With over 300 miles of coastline, Cornwall is the perfect SUP destination for all levels and offers stunning views. Porthcurno is one of the best spot for SUPing with calm, turquoise water and secreat coves and white sandy beaches.
