About us

Meet the team

We are Mare and Zeljka, adventure travel guides from Croatia who specialize in organizing private and small-group hiking and rock climbing tours around Dubrovnik. After many years of working in the adventure travel industry, we started this small company in 2016 with a focus on providing personalized experiences for small groups of customers, as we believe there is a growing demand for such a service in the outdoor and adventure market.

Tourism is the main industry in Croatia and Dubrovnik has become a popular destination for visitors worldwide. With us, you can explore Dubrovnik in a unique way by being active in its beautiful surroundings.

So bring your sense of adventure and your walking shoes, and join us for an unforgettable experience!

Mare Ivanišin

Mare was born and raised in Dubrovnik, and has always been drawn to the beauty of the sea and the stone. She lived abroad and traveled extensively, but the lure of the sea eventually brought her back to her hometown. Mare is an experienced kayaker and a skilled skipper who loves to sail wherever the wind takes her. She knows the area's bays, cliffs, and beaches like the back of her hand. She has been practicing rock climbing for many years and has been working as a guide and instructor for various outdoor activities since 2001. Mare can be found climbing or sailing with friends when she's not guiding.

Mare is a licensed sports climbing instructor, mountain guide, and skipper.


Željka Janjanin

Željka was born and raised in Karlovac, a city in the north of Croatia. Her adventurous spirit was sparked at a young age by exploring her hometown's lush parks, rivers, and forests. She eventually became a guide for canoeing, kayaking, cycling, and hiking trips in Croatia. In 1996, she discovered her favorite outdoor activity, speleology, while living in Karlovac after finishing high school. Since then, caving, hiking, camping, climbing, and exploring Croatia have become a way of life for her. When she's not guiding, Željka volunteers for non-profit organizations like the mountaineering club and speleology organizations, sharing her love for the outdoors with friends.

Željka is a licensed mountain guide and Nordic walking guide.
