For 9 holidays in the Bovec area from 2005 until now, we use SportMix for our white water experience, usually more activities per holiday. I thought it is about time to share our opinion.
After the first time we saw no reason to try another company the next time and after a few times we knew that we would definitely got to SportMix the next time and it stayed that way.
The people at the reception (owner or employee) are kind, they think with your wishes in mind when planning activities. They will always try to arrange a nice experience for you, no matter how many other customers there are. We are usually there at quiet times when there is a possibility that not a full group can be booked. That was never a problem. As an example, my girlfriend has a neck injury that can cause problems during activities. We went hydrospeeding and they planned it in such way that another group who went rafting did the trip at the same time that our group hydrospeed people did the route. She could join the raft half way when her neck started complaining that hydrospeeding was not such a good idea.
All the guides that we have seen so far are friendly, able to communicate, and focused on you. During the trip they will interact with you and teach you something if you like. The short breaks are filled with nice and funny experiences. You are not just part of a bunch of customers that quietly has to be taken down the river.

Are they capable and is it safe? Definitely! They are all trained and you can see that. During the years the water conditions on the Soca were different sometimes and they carefully choose the route and equipment. You get the feeling that the guides will always be able to guide the boat along the rocks and through the rapids without problems. If they say that it is safe than you know that it is.
As we got to know them better (and they us), there have been some opportunities for a little do-it-yourself the last two years (even only observing can give you little skills). What I did so far was always safe because the guide made sure that it happened at the right moment and under the right conditions. Special thanks to Betty for that.

I don't know other companies from inside. SportMix is probably one of the smaller companies but they can give you everything that a wonderful experience needs. Each and every time!

We were part of a walking group on a weeks holiday in Bovec. The weather was very hot while we were there and we loved it. Our first meeting with Sportmix was when we were renting bikes, Enya was very helpful making sure we all had helmets etc. others in the group went canyoning.
Another day 7 of us went rafting with Betty, we had great fun jumping off rocks and sliding down the overturned raft into the water. Betty is a great entertainer, works hard and we all enjoyed her. The next day because of the fun we had more of our group went rafting with Sportmix. On our last day we rented bikes again and Tamara was on hand to help and reccommended places to visit.
We went to lapena valley which was spectacular and is a must. Get a good map of the area and see all the walking and cycling tracks.
We were extremely happy with Sportmix and they really helped us enjoy our holiday in Bovec.
It was our first visit to Bovec and the people that we met there were so nice and friendly, hopefully we will return.

Sportmix exceeded our expectations in every way! They offer all the water activities however we opted for white water rafting. The water conditions were good so they took us further down the river than usual at no extra charge. The staff were all amazingly friendly and also chatty and funny in the down time before the trip started. Their trips were very reasonably priced and because they are just off the main drag they are a bit quieter than other companies which meant we shared the river with no other rafts, while other companies were launching 5 rafts at a time. Along the way they stopped for a couple of jumps in the river and good photo spots including inside a waterfall! The raft guide "Betty" was really amazing energetic and fun as well as safe. Photos were also taken on the trip and given to us free on USB where other companies were trying to sell them. They were also very helpful and accurate with helping us plan cool spots to visit on the rest of our journey. Furthermore my girlfriend left a ring with them by mistake which was promptly posted to our home at no extra charge. All in all it was an amazing day and we will definitely be using SPORTMIX in future trips to Slovenia - If you choose a company by good service and good people than these are the guys to go with :)
