I listen carefully to what clients are wishing to experience, so I could arrange a tour that could mostly match their expectations. I make sure all details are planned properly and on time according to the offer. Staying flexible for special requests, I try to fulfill details that are out of standard routes.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in adventure activities, customized to activity level from initial to advanced physical possibilities. Doing kayaking, hiking, biking, cycling, trail running and also private sailing tours. Routes are based on the Adriatic sea and coastal cities and islands (Split, Dubrovnik, Hvar, Istra)."

How did you get involved in travel?

"After college, I started working in a National touristic organization as this is a primary economic branch in Croatia. After years in promotion Croatia as a touristic destination, I have moved from capital town Zagreb to a village near Split and started doing as a booking agent for adventuristic offers. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"After years of working in a busy and crowded town, I have unintentionally started doing small trips with my SUV vehicle on mountains in Dalmatian hinterland that usually ended up with me sleeping on open air and taking a long walk with my dog, taking pictures of wildlife such as wolfs and wild boar.

After some time, I decided to live on a mountain and hopefully do what I can so other people would get in touch with nature as I did, preferably in a more arranged way. "
