Standup Paddle Boarding On Lake Achensee
What started as a trend sport has long since established itself as a relaxed summer family activity on the lake: standup paddle boarding (SUP). If you are looking for more “classic” ways to explore the lake, get out on the water in a kayak or pedal boat.
Standup paddle boarding (SUP) is a fun fitness activity where you stand on a board – similar to a large surfboard. You use a paddle to propel yourself through the water in a standing position, which is an excellent full-body workout. Even beginners will get the hang of keeping their balance in no time! Kids can let off some steam and compete in races while the adults paddle leisurely across the lake, adoring the stunning panorama and the fish in the lake. Alternatively, the SUP works like an air mattress: Move out onto the lake and bask in the sun. And if you get too hot on the board, just take the plunge into the cool water.
A popular SUP tour starts in the Buchau and leads counterclockwise along the lakeshore. If you’re lucky, you will have a little tailwind and you can save the more beautiful western bank for the way back. At Camping Achensee Schwarzenau, you cross the lake and paddle back in a southerly direction. This tour covers about 13 kilometres but there are also shorter tours.
