Building high performance in the heart of nature

Training in Paradise area combines perfect training conditions, amazing nature and top training support for your spring and summer training camps and sessions. The best period for you to visit TiP is from end of March till the end of October – making it a perfect destination for:

·         pre-season camps or preparation camps before the big competitions of national teams

·         camps in a more relaxed environment for clubs

·         individual training of single athletes or small groups (see also coaching clinics and consulting)

 

We recommend Lake Bled: to Athletes looking for high performance training environment. Paddlers and rowers looking for idyllic natural environment with all the modern life commodities at hand.

We recommend Lake Bohinj: to bigger teams who look for the benefits of a bigger lake and a 3 kilometer long training course. And also to nature lovers and romantic souls who will appreciate the majestic and pristine nature.

We recommend lake Most na Soči: for high volume training (because of the length of the lake) and for club training camps (most affordable of our lakes). From Most na Soči lake it is also easy to combine flatwater training with wild water training for slalom and downriver on the Soča river.

”I loved it! I didn’t know Bled is such a popular touristic place and didn’t know how pretty it was. Overall we had a nice accommodation, delicious food and perfect water conditions. Also the whole facility with changing rooms, boat shed and the gym – all in one place – is amazing. You did a good job!”

”Training in Paradise lived up to the expectations. Lake Bohinj proved to be a fantastic lake to train on with phenomenal surroundings and very friendly and helpful people. Our group of over 40 people loved every minute of it. Training there was fantastic and will for sure help me get a great result at the marathon Worlds. Thanks again for all the help!”

”The Australian Junior Olympic Hopes Team can’t wait to get back to Bohinj for another training camp. Great pre training organization, sensational training lake – crystal clear and wind free. The people were friendly and all spoke English which made communication simple for all of us. It’s one of the most beautiful training locations we have ever been to. Rest days at Bled and Ljubljana added to the experience.”

”I love Bohinj and the whole area. It is definitely one of the best places in the world I have ever trained at. Moreover, it is very affordable compared to a lot of places we have trained in the past. When we are here for 6 weeks that becomes a big factor. I guess when you get one of the best places to train and it is also affordable, that is the dream scenario!”
