A seat of a kayak offers you an opportunity to explore the rugged and beautiful Soča River. Professional instructors will be your conductor through an intense 2-3-hour training course and give you the skills, joy, and confidence to endear the challenges of the open white and wild emerald water. Be the king of the kayak, spend more days on the river and Soča will definitely deliver. If mastering kayaking is your goal, multi-day courses are recommended.

We had an excellent trainer (Adrian) who even brought our afraid youngest to continue the course! And he tought us a lot during the two days. We are grateful for the excinting time. The material (boats and jackets) was ok but already pretty used and not in perfect condition anymore. Staff was very kind and organization of the course was very professional.

Had a Great After Season course. Very Small group (2 and 3 People in the group) and a very individual course. Everyone was very friendly. Soca is a nice River. Kayak School was a lot of fünf and we will definitely do it again some day

Excellent Company with a great staff!
We spent 5 days in Bovec and 4 days on the Soca River with a beginners kayak course. We chose the company SportMix due to their friendliness and it was a great choice! Both the owner and the office staff as well as our guide Owen were super fun and open people! Owen is a highly professional guide and tought us patiently all the basics and advanced techniques as well, as he saw that we were highly interested and motivated. We paddled down different sections of the Soca and saw wonderful places!
All in all we can highly recommend SportMix and Owen!
Thanks a lot for the great experience and see you soon again! :D

It was a perfectly organized course with very motivated people. Everyone had a lot of fun and we could really enjoy our kayaking experience. We started really slow and in the end we were able to take big white water waves, which was a lot of fun. We also got great pictures from our adventure. This coure is perfect for beginners, but also if you have some experience. I can really recommend kayaking with sport mix. Thank you for the great time!

It was a perfect course and a lot of fun. We had the chance to be guided by the two Hungarian brothers. They took their time to explain the basics as most of the group was beginners! They made us feel very safe and we had fun so that's super important.
All the personnel from the driver to the girls at the central office were super friendly and helpful! Definitely recommend!

This company exceeded our expectations. They take safety very seriously, show patience with beginners, and make it so everyone has an unforgettable experience. I recommend kayaking the Soca River, and if you're lucky enough to get Owen and Sebastian as your guides, than you will have an awesome day on the river. The owner of the company was a real nice guy too, as well as the girls who worked the front desk, and anyone else who we met working there that I have not yet mentioned. We definitely plan on returning some day soon.
