We had a terrific experience with Hydomania, canyoning on the Sušec!
Two adults, two teens and one energetic child (11), on a hot August day. We booked the 3 hour tour.

Our guide, Sam, was easy-going and friendly, explained and helped when needed and made the group (7 of us) feel relaxed yet safe. Our equipment was in good condition, just make sure you try on the boots before leaving the dressing area, you have a good few hours to walk in them, including a steep hike up the canyon, alongside the other groups. So you need a basic level of fitness for this. The canyon is well travelled and we came across several other groups, the guides are professional and seasoned.
Overall a great adventure and great value for money.

I travelled here with three friends and we booked with HydroMania for both cantoning and kayaking trips. We did the kayaking trip first and oh my goodness, so incredible. The emerald cooler of the Soca River is just stunning. We were picked up on the day and taken to the river where we were given wetsuits, life jackets etc. The guide Matej was really friendly (and funny) and always put our safety first which was good! The next day we did cannoning and while very different from kayaking, it is an activity that will test your limits but leave you with a massive smile on your dial. As a group of four girls, it was the most fun we've had in ages. A great team building and bonding exercise whilst getting to enjoy nature.

I give HydroMania five stars. Their staff are so fantastic and really passionate about Slovenia. Honestly, they are such a great company and I am already planning my next trip back to Slovenia so I can do it all again!

We went to rafting for the first time. It was a great trip to Bovec. It was a bit problem to find them, cuz navigation took us to another place, but eventully we found the right one.
The trip down the river was great. Water had like cca 9 degres, so it wakes you up in a second. Guide on the boat was kind.

Just a recommendation to owner... It doesnt hurt to be a litter more friendly to your costumers and staff.

Beside that... good experience 👌🏼

If there is something that really disturbs me is a bad service, unfriendly staff and people lying to you to get you money.
Not suitable for you if your are seeking for adrenaline.

We called the company in advance to get information about the River conditions and to ensure that we would be into a real adventurous activity and not just another tourist trap. The guy called Jan told us that it was the best time in the year and that it would reach our expectations. We made it clear that we didn’t wanted to just sit in the boat and paddle down the river but we wanted to get into real rapids. The answers were always leading us to book it but and so we did, trusting the guy.

At the end, as we suspected, it was just another money maker company fishing us and did not delivering what they promised. They even put a trainee guide into our boat, not carrying at all for the quality of our experience. Every sport activity has it’s difficulty level and we expect of a good company to sort out beginner and advancers to provide to both groups the best experience instead of just lowering the level and leaving the advancers with a taste of boredom.

We were a group of 11 members with 3 kids and we had a great time rafting with our guides Ian and Roc. It was smooth sailing, nothing crazy as we had kids with us. Would definitely recommend this to all families with kids out there. And of course they have higher level rafting for the adrenaline junkies as well.

If you are looking for an authentic rafting experience where you dont just feel like a wallet, then stop looking!!
We went rafting with these guys and it was awesome!! We stopped a few times during the rafting tour to jump off some cliffs and one of the guides, Ian, gave us interesting information about the soca river and also took time to explain everything.
We highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a memorable rafting experience in Bovec!! :)

I travelled to Slovenia a month ago with 3 other girlfriends and spent two days in Bovec. I was blown away by the beauty of the Soča river and was lucky enough to do two activities with Hydromania - canyoning and kayaking.
I can say for certain this is one of the best adventure companies I've experienced.
Day one saw us kayak along the breath-taking emerald Soča river which was beyond beautiful. We had all had a small amount of kayaking experience but this was oir favourite location by far. We were led by two very experienced guides.
The following day took us right out of our comfort zone. First a climb to the top of a hill and then a series of slides, jumps and abseilng down rocks and waterfalls.
The most fun I've had in a long time. The guides were fantastic - ensuring our safety at all times.

A must do when visiting Slovenia. Would highly recommend :)
