About Our Lands

While exploring Croatia or Slovenia with us, you will do more than simply visit an area, you will get under its skin by exploring the landscape, wildlife, mountains, Adriatic Sea, typical Karst region, extraordinary cuisine, traditional culture, art and music.

Croatia

Croatia is rich in terms of landscape, culture and history. That is why you will always experience unexpected discoveries on your way.

Nestled between the Alps, Pannonian Plain and Adriatic Sea, in the south-eastern part of the European continent, it is becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Mediterranean. But even in the busy summer months there are more than enough secret spots and idyllic places where you can relax and enjoy some reflective solo-time.

Croatia is widely regarded as being “home to the world’s best sunsets” and endless sandy and rocky beaches. On over 1100 islands you will have the endless opportunities to relax and discover this unique and modernised country, that managed so well to keep the authentic vibe of the Mediterranean as it once was. Cities throughout the country have well preserved old towns, mostly hidden behind many centuries old city walls. Venetian-style palaces, stone houses, fortresses and narrow, marble streets are just a few of many historical sights.

It is a homeland to breathtaking national parks, picturesque nature parks and special reserves that protect plant life, animals and geological formations. A place where you will find some of the world’s most beautiful islands and most spectacular landscape. A land of unique gastronomy with a modern touch of traditional recipes. Croatia is truly a country of diversity.

Many tourists visit Croatia with one purpose: sunbathing on dreamy beaches. Although nearly 6000 kilometres of coastline is unquestionably one of the most inviting things, we believe this is just one drop in the ocean of opportunities of how to experience this magnificent land. Walk or bike across the islands, hike high up the mountains, raft down the rivers, get lost deep in the river canyons, explore the amazing underwater world or sea-kayak to lonely beaches. The choice is yours. Choose the activities you prefer and let us do the organisation and help you be your own guide.

Slovenia

Slovenia is a unique destination for exploring and travelling. It is a great destination for people who look for an active experience – the best and most excellent experience in the time that is available.

It is often said that we should look for beauty in the small things. If we follow this suggestion we sometimes find even more fascinating things than we expected. Slovenia is guaranteed to be the best example of this. A small land that you can come from one side to another in under 3 hours, a land that is home to only 2 million people, but a land to countless natural wonders. From high mountains that are touching the sky, to mysterious underworld in Karst. From breathtaking alpine lakes high above the tree line to emerald rivers and lakes and blue Adriatic sea. From big and modern cities to small, traditional villages. Slovenia is a country of diversity.

Slovenia as a tourist destination is a winner of many prestigious awards: it won the Destination Award in the 2015 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards as being the most sustainable destination. Bled won the award for being the best sport tourism town in 2016. It is quickly gaining reputation as being one of the most desired destinations among travellers.

A paradise for nature lovers and an adventurer’s playground it is a promise to all visitors to spend every moment of their stay mesmerised by the unique beauty of the land.

The options how to experience the country are endless, but as being an outdoor destination, We believe there is no better way to explore and discover a country, than to travel across the country on foot or by bike and give yourself an opportunity to see and find spots that otherwise you could not. Walk across the Julian Alps and conquer Mount Triglav, Slovenia’s highest mountain and feel like you are on top of the world. Bike across the country through the magnificent Trenta valley and explore some of the finest biking trails. Raft down the rivers and feel the rage of the rapids. Or go deep in the canyon and experience raw, untouched nature that remains hidden to most.
