Snowboard lessons are a great way to spend your winter getaway in the crisp fresh mountain air. It is fun for all ages; your children can learn a new fun activity while you have some time for yourself or work on your riding.  Your half day snowboarding lessons will start with a scenic cable car ride above Lake Bohinj to the top station at Vogel. There you will be able to get the rental equipment if you do not have your own.  The tour caters to all levels of snowboard experience. If you are a beginner or you have never stood on a snowboard before, you will first get familiar with the equipment, and take your first steps in snowboard boots as well as get used to your position on a snowboard. The teaching technique perfected by the instructors will take you step by step to ensure you get the most out of every lesson. As you progress and your confidence grows you will also become familiar with all types of ski lifts (T-lift, chairlift) and learn how to use them safely.  Once you have mastered the basic turns, sliding and other techniques you will move on to perfecting them so you can really enjoy riding more. The intermediate level focuses on correcting common mistakes and overall improvement of your riding style as well as learning more and more new skills.  Even if you're already on the advanced level, a lesson or two can immensely improve your ride. If you're interested in learning some freestyle techniques, there are easy tips to get started in the snowpark or add some new impressive moves to your freestyle repertoire. If you're already an expert and you'd just like to work on riding on different, more demanding terrains, the instructors can show you easy ways around any obstacle so you can improve your free ride skills as well.  At the end of your lessons you can enjoy the rest of the day and practice your newly acquired skills or just relax on the mountain, take in the incredible views, and enjoy the local delicious food and drinks in one of the mountain huts on Vogel.

What people are saying about Bled

We (a group of 4 girls) were genuinely surprised how much we enjoyed this activity. The transfer to the river was well-planned, the scenery was absolutely stunning and our guide made all the difference. (His name is Mitja if I'm not mistaken) His English was super, knew a lot about our surroundings and made the whole tour more enjoyable. The tour was organised, the swimming suits and other stuff were clean and taken care of.

It was a really lovely experience which effectively exceeded our expectations. The guides were really nice and good at their job. The company is very organized and booking was very easy and straightforward. The rafting itself is really good and the places we passed through are simply amazing. I highly recommend this activity especially for families or group of friends.

It was amazing especially for the kids. The level was perfect. The staff was friendly and amicable. Perfect afternoon apart from the beautiful scenery we experienced during the rafting. Not to be missed
