My wife and I were looking for something fun to do kill a couple of hours, so we rented some equipment to paddle down the river right next to the shop. When we asked about the rent and the fact we didn't need a guide we noticed the staff behind the counter exchange a look. I think this is because... More

Need to rent a bike, kayak, or find out about local trails? This is the place to go. Right across from Lake Bohinj it is the perfect location to start your hike around the lake or a mountain bike ride through the small villages or up to one of the mountain meadows and waterfalls. Very friendly and helpful English speaking... More

We used Alpinsport for ski and snowboard hire and private lessons during our trip to Vogel and they were great. Staff spoke great English and all terms agreed in our emails before arriving were noted so the whole process was easy. Aleksandra made the snowboard lessons fun and I improved a great deal in just two lessons. Equipment was relatively... More

It was a pleasure to deal with Aleksandra and everyone at Alpinsport. My boyfriend and I hired snowboards & boots and I had a lesson as well. Very happy with the service and we will come back in the summer to try paragliding for sure! Thank you very much!

These guys are legends! Cheap hire of a decent bike, thorough local knowledge and they let me use a locker even when I was not using the bike yet. Super nice.

We went there for mountain bikes, paragliding, canyoning, kayaks & info and everytime, for us, warm, friendly and satisfying! Even had some beers with the owner (Mr Alpin -- ;-] ) and his canyoning guy, Mat, and they are SO nice!! This is the only place I will use in Bohinj!

I thoroughly enjoyed tandem paragliding through Alpinsport. The first morning this was scheduled, the Alpinsport staff let me know as soon as possible that it would not happen due to road construction. Gliding with Lucy was a blast!

We hired everything from Alpinsport at their Vogel site. First time we had private lessons and Martin was great - we were both taught parallel turns with in two hours on the first day.Well worth the money, his English was good and we felt safe.

We arranged ski hire and instruction for 2 adults and 2 kids (9 and 11) through Alpinsport. From the first email contact, they were so friendly and helpful. On arrival in Bohinj, all of our equipment was ready in the shop, which is conveniently situated opposite the hotel Jezero on the lake, although you can choose to collect the gear... More

best of the best. pilots of paragliders are complete professionals and there is no room for experimentation. Everything runs according to plan. If the weather is suitable for flying the jump is on, otherwise not.
