Here at Adventure Travel, if you can’t find us on the hiking trails, then you’ll probably find us at the nearest coast, river or lake on a stand up paddle (SUP) board. There’s just something so relaxing about taking to your board and seeing how different your favourite places look from the water.

So, with the above in mind, we decided to hit up the world of Instagram to find just some of the incredible places people have explored by SUP board… and we just know they’ll make you say ‘I’d SUP that!’.
