Spending my summers as a child at my grandparents house at Plitvice Lakes National Park area and being active on a bike for most of my life, seemed as a perfect match for creating the experience for everybody that is in to nature, wildlife, urban destination exploring and sport, spiced with local products. For 15 years I worked as a travel guide across Europe and 5 years as outdoor guide for hiking, cycling, river and sea kayak in Croatia.

If you like history or truly unusual places, this is the your for you! Hrvoje is very knowledgeable about the region and answered my complex geopolitical questions very sensitively. And the cheese at the end is a beautiful local touch!

A very interesting experience that is a bit unusual and off the beaten track. Our guide was punctual, knowledgable and informative and made us feel very welcome. It’s quite eerie in the tunnels, especially when the torches are turned off. We’d never be allowed to access this type of thing in the UK so it was great fun exploring the buildings, plane, air strip and tunnels.
