Stasa Kraljic

Already at my young age, I had the desire to travel and explore the unknown. My love for outdoors came as naturally as my candor. My lust to travel took me hiking in the mountains of Nepal, dancing salsa on the streets of Santiago de Cuba, searching for Cuidad Perdida in Colombia and walking the steps of Mayan pyramids in Central America.

However, my love for my country, lead me to come home and endeavor in hiking the Julian Alps, cycling the challenging hairpin turns of Vrsic pass, relaxing on the shores of dreamy Dalmatia and enjoying the sweet dolce vita of neighboring Italy. And I love sharing my knowledge of the area because, the most I can offer to each and every traveler, is my time and experience.

I live my life to the fullest by doing what I love most - practicing active travel! Come join me and I'll share some of my secret spots with you, so YOU too will fall IN LOVE with sLOVEnia! :)

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"As a boutique tour operator, we specialize in individual and/or small group active travel in Slovenia and Croatia. We are a local specialist for hiking and cycling trips. We love small boutique hotels, fine wine and we are fully dedicated foodies. And this is the kind of travel we like to offer to our guests."

How did you get involved in travel?

"Although I hold a masters from PR and marketing, my love of traveling has continuously lead me back into the field of tourism, which I got more familiar with working as a tour guide during my college years. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"During my high-school years, I spent a year in Minnesota, USA, as an exchange student where I finessed my proficiency in English. One of the things I still remember most is the poem The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost. Which partially led to my adventurous exploring of the world. Throughout the years I perfected many talents and developed many skills. But, although I've seen much of the world and am today fluent in six languages, there are still many bullet points on my bucket list!"
