"I have been involved with nature since a young age. Growing partly up on a farm with my grandparents, I was able to experience the Slovenian wilderness at it's best learning important skills of how to go in nature. When I get older also Scouts helped me discover wilderness in Slovenia, then I started climbing and discovering mountains, which offered me a new perspective of nature.

In 2017 I started to work towards an idea to set up tour operation in Slovenia. It´s a place where culture, mountains, people, and history comes together and creates a very interesting vibe. It is very small, so it makes all experiences very approachable and compact. "

Trip to slovenia, Slovenia - Aug 1 - Aug 6, 2017

Traveler: Mohammed I. - Local specialist: Polona Juricinec Cesen

Monika was the strongest asset here. She knew the country in and out and is an x-pro skil jumper. The rest of the tour team was amazing as well.

Polona, Monika, Ales, and Siggi were all really amazing people to work with. I interacted with all of them via a Whatsapp group chat and they were there anytime I needed anything.
