Sports & adventure trip
Can you visualise yourself and a bunch of friends spending 8 days packed with fun sea-based activities, during which you learn how to windsurf?
Just imagine – the sun, the wind, the Adriatic sea and a team of instructors at your disposal. But we don’t stop at windsurfing – you’ll go stand-up paddling, kayaking, exploring secluded beaches and bays, snorkeling and even hiking and biking, if that’s to your liking. Could this be that perfect active holiday you’ve been looking for?
We think this is your one of a kind opportunity to get good at surfing, and that’s why the trip is designed around the water sports centre near Cape Kamenjak. You’ll love the cosy mobile homes for four, and the team spirit at the centre. And the more friends you bring, more fun you’ll have!

Camp Stupice is situated 12 kilometres south of Pula in the direction of Premantura and located within a dense pine wood on the tip of Cape Kamenjak, the southernmost part of Istria and a protected nature park. Offering lovely coves and beaches, as well as crystal clear sea, the Park is great for swimming but it's also an excellent cycling location – one of the marked Istrian bike tracks passes here, and since it is not demanding, everyone can enjoy the easy ride and magnificent views.
You can look for small hidden beaches not only on bikes but also go SUPing. You can paddle out to numerous beaches and locations that are otherwise difficult to reach. SUP is a sport which is rapidly growing in popularity and the waters of the Medulin bay provide ideal conditions for practicing.
You can bike or SUP by yourselves, but a kayak excursion will be done under the watchful eye of our professional guides – just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery, but don't forget to paddle!
Welcome to Istria. Upon arrival in Premantura, you will settle in Camping Stupice, which also has a surf centre offering windsurfing courses, as well as a range of other activities. In the evening, you will be greeted by the friendly surf centre team, who will introduce you to the weekly itinerary. You'll have the rest of the night for a stroll through the campsite and village, as well as dinner. It might be a good idea going to bed early, so you can rest from your travel and be up and ready for new challenges.
You'll wake up in the mobile home that features a fully equipped kitchen. You can purchase all the necessary ingredients for your favourite breakfast at the nearby shop. Are you ready for some windsurfing? We'll be leaving you in the expert hands of the sports centre's instructors. During the next few days you'll get to experience the allure of this sport first-hand. If you're a beginner, you will learn the basic moves and how to balance, manoeuvre, tack and gybe in the safe surroundings of the Premantura aquatorium. If you're a more experienced surfer, you can expand your knowledge, learn some new elements and hone your skills. Can you feel the rush already? Once you bridle the wind with your own bare hands, you'll instantly fall in love with windsurfing. Your lessons will last a total of eight hours over the course of four days, which means that you'll have plenty of time for swimming, riding bikes or engaging in other activities, which you can book on the spot (mini-golf, jet skiing, tennis etc.). There is also an à la carte restaurant located on the premises of the campsite, which offers seafood and meat specialities, as well as pasta and pizza. After each delicious dinner, a comfortable bed awaits you in your mobile home.
You can ask your instructors about the events in Premantura and Medulin.
Ready for some more water sports? You will be departing the campsite in the morning. You'll be in for an unforgettable experience as you take the kayak through the Medulin archipelago. You'll get to discover numerous hidden beaches, bays and islands, the most stunning of which is Fenoliga island. Here, you will find dinosaur footprints and you can take a photo of your own footprint for scale. Cool, isn't it? Standing where these magnificent creatures once roamed is truly an indescribable feeling. Our next stop is the Safari Bar, where you can take a break and have a meal. On your way back, you can use your snorkeling gear to explore the cave near the Safari Bar. After returning to the campsite, you'll have some free time for dinner and relaxing.
We have prepared something more laid-back for the last day of your activity holiday. Stand-Up Paddling is the fastest growing water sport and is appropriate for all ages. Grab a board and a paddle and have fun in the peaceful campsite aquatorium. After some light paddling, unwind and hit the numerous walking paths of Kamenjak. The entire area is suitable for riding bikes, which is why we recommend that you rent a bike for half a day. If eight hours of windsurfing still isn't enough for you, feel free to spend some more time on the sailboard. The windsurfing centre's friendly team also offers exercise equipment. Spend your last night in Premantura at one of the restaurants or prepare a dinner to remember and toast your fantastic week in gorgeous Istria.
Time to check out and head home. By now, don't be surprised if you are already longing for coming back next summer.
