This summer, HOA is bringing one of the most popular water sports into Hokkaido – the Stand Up Paddle Boarding. This relatively new water sports has become quite a sensation in country such as the US and Australia. People worldwide enjoy SUP on both the sea and rivers. SUP requires you to gain balance in order to stand on a long board, and paddle along with the river current. To be able to stay standing on the board, it requires the use of different muscles in your bodies, so it can also be viewed as a great way to shape up. HOA’s tour is designed so that even beginners can enjoy the fun of paddling alone on the river. Our professional guides will lead you to the calmer sections on the Saru River, where you can take your time gaining balance, and enjoy flowing alone with the river.
