It was at the third Himalayan travel in the back of the truck going through the Tibetan wilderness when I came up with the travel idea, that soon evolved into TrekTrek. In the following years globe-trotting, expeditions to remote corners of the planet and travel to the people from other continents became the lifestyle that I still passionately follow.
I love the great Slovenian outdoors, sleeping under the stars, climbing mountains and negotiating trails riding my mountain-bike. But then, there is also the magic of the Blue Adriatic where I spend the second half of my time sailing on top of Beneteau First. And so, even TrekTrek office often becomes mobile and is moved to the beautiful Croatian islands.

How did you get involved in travel?
"I went trekking to Nepal as a student in my early 20s and got enchanted by the magic of travel. In the following years, I over landed Asia from Beijing to Delhi via Tibet, spend 4 months cycling in Patagonia and explored the remote parts of Central Sahara desert. The more I traveled the more I got to appreciate the immense beauty of Slovenian nature and the incredible travel potential of the Balkans. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"It must have been the 60 days of traveling through Eastern Tibet, a very wild and remote Himalayan region. After numerous days of walking and hitchhiking Chinese trucks, I got to a mountain place with a beautiful emerald lake. There were hundreds of white tents pitched at the side of a lake. I realized I was visiting the summer festival of Tibetan nomads where some of them had never seen a white face before. There were horse racing, archery, dancing and many other activities taking place in a Tibetan region not far away from Bhutan and Myanmar."

Luka was our initial contact who responded quickly and was very informative during our initial inquiries. Closer to the trip, we we worked with his colleague Stasa who was our guide for the week.
The trip to Slovenia exceeded our expectations. Stasa planned an amazing itinerary and I did not realize the extent of the concierge service we would get.
