Back in 1994., Davor was persuaded by his friend to go on his first rafting tour on the Dobra river. Back then, rafting on the Dobra river was considered the best rafting in Croatia, and Davor was immediately smitten by the sport. Fifteen years later, he founded an adventure tour company – Raftrek Travel, where he lives his hobby up to this day. He acquired experience as a rafting participant, instructor, and competitor on world-renowned rivers, as well as participating in three World Championships and a couple of European championships. Davor is a licensed „International Rafting Federation“ instructor and a licensed „River Rescue 3 Europe“ white water rescuer. He is also a river and sea kayaking guide, and lately, he spends a lot of his time sailing and skipping. Davor is an adventurer privately too, who, in his quests for new experiences, has traveled many countries, and as a passionate hiker considers Nepal his home away from home.
Nika had a very logical journey in her professional life. After working for telecommunication corporations, cultural organizations, and specialized sports equipment dealers, 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.
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.

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.
