SUPing in Switzerland (and around the world!)


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There are 58 lakes in Switzerland with an area of 1 sq km or more, as well as several navigable rivers … I’m aiming to get around them all with my SUP (Stand Up Paddle) board, and this page is my “collector card” 🙂

Each lake or river in the list is linked to the route logs for each trip on the ride mapping app “Strava”.

Over on my Pinterest page you can see maps and more photos of all my SUP rides.

Feel free to leave comments – I’d love to hear from anyone else who has been SUPing in Switzerland or wants to!
