Ivana Grzetic

I was born and raised in Dubrovnik where I graduated from American College of management and Technology (RIT). As a student I started working as a tour guide, specialized for Dubrovnik, surrounding islands and Montenegro. In 2004 I founded my own adventure travel agency, specialized in sea kayaking and adventure tours in Croatia. When I travel, I love to travel as a local and this is my approach when I create holidays for the others.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Croatia, sea kayaking, adventure and specila interest tours"

How did you get involved in travel?

"Just after graduating from high school I worked as a fashion model for two years. I lived in different places, like Hong Kong, South Korea, Athens, Istanbul and Rome. Traveling became my passion and I realized I wanted to work in travel business. When I got back home to finish my studies, I needed the contact with people from all over the World so I started working as a tour guide. I love meeting new people and I am proud of my beautiful country so the next idea was to start my own business where my creativity would focus on creating fabulous unique holidays, off the beaten path that would feature nature, local culture and amazing traditional food. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

I was stuck in a swow for two days and I stayid in a fabolous little hotel in the mountain region of Croatia, near Plitvice Lakes. "
