Croatia is very famous as a seaside tourist destination, but so far it’s not enough famous for its mountain areas. This trip is an opportunity to explore its huge potential and natural beauty.

I propose to guide you around the most important areas of the Dinaric Alps. This is a mountain chain that goes along several countries; in Croatia, it extends for more than 600 kilometers along the coast of the Adriatic Sea. 

Some of the places where I would like to take you for a hike are Northern Istra, Gorski Kotar, Velebit and Lika. In fact, those are the places that I know best and where I’ve spent most of my hiking experience.

I love nature and I’m a very active person. That’s why I enjoy so much spending time in the forest.

We can organize hiking trips lasting from only 1 day to 3 complete days. Below, you can read a little bit about each of these spots in Croatia:


It’s a group of mountains that belong to the Dinaric Alps. The highest peak there is Vaganski, at 1757 m. There are many protected areas in this region, as it’s surrounded by deep forests with a wide variety of fauna.

Gorski Kotar

This mountainous area is covered by forests. Because of that, it is known as “the green lungs of Croatia”. In fact, Risnjak National park lies in this are area full of interesting places and natural beauties.

Lička Plješivica (Lika)

It’s a mountain in Croatia, lying right in the border with Bosnia & Herzegovina. It belongs to the Dinaric Alps and it’s mostly covered by forest. It’s also close to Plitvica Lakes National Park, the largest protected area in the country.

Ćićarija (Northern Istra)

In the North of the Istria Peninsula, Ćićarija stands out as a high mountainous plateau. It’s almost entirely in Croatia, although it has a small Slovenian part. The highest peak in the area is Veliki Planik (1272 m).

Please contact me if you want to go hiking in Croatia. We can arrange a trip in some of these areas according to your time and wishes. I’ll be glad to show you the wonderful mountain regions of this country!

Mountain Leader

I was born in 1980 and I live in Rijeka, Croatia. I’ve always loved nature and I am a hiker since 2004. In 2011, I became a member of the Croatian Mountain Guides Association and then, in 2013, I received the UIMLA certification.

I mostly guide in the Dinaric Mountains of Croatia, organizing trips in areas of Gorski Kotar, Velebit and Lika.

I practice standard hiking and orientation in the forest. In fact, I really like to listen and feel the forest, especially in dusk and dawn when most of wildlife observing happens.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
