Almost a decade ago, three friends of mine met on the island of Hvar to pick olives and later that night, over some grilled seafood and local wine, decided to form a different kind of agency –one that would celebrate our love for outdoor adventure–sea kayaking, biking, climbing and so much more that this part of Croatia has to offer.
We didn’t have role-models – adventure tourism in Croatia was still new territory back then but, what’s life without the adventure!
After talking for hours, we were more and more convinced us that we could create something really special. After all, each of us loved adventure and each of us had very different but amazingly complimentary skills. But the glue that has kept us so together over the years is that we all believed then and still do, that living and loving what you do is a dream worth pursuing!
So we quickly established our mission:
1. To create Croatia’s best sea kayaking, rock climbing, hiking, biking and sailing programs.
2. To experience every program ourselves—if we don’t love it, we don’t offer it.
3. To never compromise on equipment—from ropes to boats.
4. To always hire the best (which is different from most) experienced guides, period.
5. To always have Plan B if something isn’t working. We’re not afraid of improvising as long as the safety of every guest comes first.
And of course, to never forget that being on vacation, experiencing the outdoors is fun!
This simple “recipe” has allowed us to become not only well-respected among our peers, but encourages us to develop new programs—and that’s the kind of learning that keeps us on our toes and on the cutting edge of adventure travel!
We don’t believe in uniformity but diversity – so the reason we offer more programs than most agencies “doing” adventure, is that each of them is done with knowledge and passion.
In fact, our trips reflect our personalities. We’ve never stop exploring the nature of things.
Although we are all locals fluent in English, some of us speak Spanish, German and Italian. And because we love Croatia and adventure, we know some pretty amazing people, characters, stories, restaurants, secret trails, coves, groves, all kinds of places Lonely Planet and other guide books can only dream about.
So knowing where, when and how to find a solitary spot in the middle of high season is not just a challenge, it’s an opportunity we look forward to!
We care and want our guests to have best possible time when traveling, because why should anyone settle for anything less?!
We believe that by selling our services we are selling ourselves. That may sound awkward at first, but only by committing yourself totally are you able to be proud of what you deliver.
Welcome to Croatia!
welcome to adventure!
