The story is very simple. Davor came on one of first Croatia’s rafting trips back in 1994. And several years later he started his own company called Raftrek. His extensive experience has been gathered on world-famous rivers grade IV and V. Hence the experience, it brought him an IRF (International Rafting Federation) Instructor license. Great teamwork took him on three World Championships and several European championships in rafting. He enjoys spending time in nature leading rafting and kayaking trips on Croatian rivers. But also he passionately enjoys mountain climbing and trekking.
Branka started working as a guide back in 2007. University of Economy graduate, major in marketing. Fluent in English, German, and Spanish and has recently started learning French. She is a very passionate skier and snowboarder. Traveling and trekking through Croatian mountains, Slovenian and Austrian Alps took her all the way to Argentina, Chile, and Patagonia trekking routes. Thanks to her big love towards nature, her travels and sports she enjoys, she accumulated lots of experience in working with tourists.
Here is another Raftrek team member. An old hound dog camouflaged in a youthful body, with no wrinkles on his face. A pure nature lover, since the first grade in school he collected only excellent marks from nature and geology courses. Mountains, rivers, lakes or streams, nothing makes him more alive than being outdoors as a guide and he spends his winters as a snowboard instructor.
Studying Tourism at the Faculty of Economics and Business she set her professional path. Although first working in marketing and accounting she returned to her true love: tourism. Eager to help every single guest and trying to answer inquiries at the speed of lighting she will make your stay in Croatia pleasing as a light breeze. In love with nature, she enjoys relaxing in the woods, walking alongside the coast and spending her free time outdoors especially skiing in the Alps. Visiting other countries and traveling around fills her with new energy and positive vibes she shares with others.
She is the latest addition to our office team. She comes from the hospitality industry, where she spent years working, after graduating at the Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality Management. Hospitality is embedded in her DNA as well as sports. She is an avid skier who is fluent in 5 languages (our own personal grammar “freak”). Her traveling addiction brought her rich experience and views that bring new values to our team. She adores the outdoors and spends her free time trekking, skiing, cycling, ice skating or simply walking through the woods accompanied by her son. With Raftrek she started learning all about the beauty of water sports.
Nika had a very logical journey in her professional life 😊. After working for telecommunication corporations, cultural organization and specialized sports equipment dealer, she decided to join the Raftrek team in search of new adventures in her career. Her job within Raftrek connects her love for organization, traveling, culture and ethnology, with her curiosity. She will take care of every detail for you. She knows where you can drink the best coffee, where all the best-hidden beaches are, where that shortcut with that great view is or that beautiful mushroom that grows along the path. Her winters are all about pow, jumping off kickers, or wherever her skis take her. In the meantime, she spends time with her grandparents, taking notes on traditional ways of life.
