Hiking in wild trails of Croatia

Join Saša Škugor, an UIMLA local guide, and discover the wild side of Croatia in this guided tour: unspoiled forests, mountains and a wide range of fauna.

Not specified


1-3 Days

All year


I invite you to a short hiking trip in Croatia, visiting wild and isolated spots that very few people know. If we are lucky, we can find some typical fauna of the forest and mountains!

Besides the most famous and visited hiking trails in Croatia, there are another options for adventurous travelers. Although it’s not common to find other hikers in these places, there are many possibilities to follow the trace of wild animals, and learn exciting things about their way of life.

Of course, I cannot guarantee to observe wild animals because they are usually shy and try to hide. But, if you are lucky enough and you follow my instructions, you may experience unforgettable encounters, always at a safe distance (for us and also to avoid disturbing the animals).

As a guide, my purpose is to preserve their habitat, as well as educating travelers.

I really love nature and I enjoy very much listening and feeling the forest. Specially during dusk and dawn, when you can observe most of wildlife.

Among the fauna living in Croatian forests and mountains I can mention brown bear, grey wolf, lynx, deer and chamoix. Many of them live in unspoiled areas.

The regions we can visit for this trip are Gorski Kotar, Lika and Velebit.

We can arrange this trip in any time of the year. In fact, each season offers different possibilities to be close with nature.

Please contact me if you love nature and want to discover Croatia in a different way. We can organize from a half-day trip to a 2-day adventure. I will be happy to show you some secret spots in this amazing country!

About the guide

Guide profile image


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.
