Venture into the KRK, a remote and beautiful island in the Adriatic sea. Unveil all the mysteries of this stunning place in Croatia. Let Dean, an UIMLA certified guide, take you to some of the most stunning spots in the KRK.
The KRK island is the largest one on the Adriatic sea. Its more than 409 square kilometers of wild and beautiful land make this a very unique and wonderful place to trek through. There are 68 settlements on this island, and only about 16,402 inhabitants.
One of the peaks we’ll visit is Obzova (560m) the highest in the island. We’ll also venture through Baška. Then we’ll head to the Vrženica canyon. This magnificent canyon goes through passages that start easy but become gradually more difficult, so a bit of free climbing will be necessary. But the hypnotizing views you’ll get will make it completely worth it!
We’ll also visit the island of Prvić. This charming place has an incredibly rich cultural heritage. Even the name of the island has an intriguing history. It is debatable whether it came from the Croatian god of spring, or the inhabitants named it like that. There are only two settlements here. And we’ll likely run into more animals than people. So walking through its old mediterranean streets made of stone, will only bring calm and peace as we’ll only hear the sounds of the ocean.
We’ll go from Baška to the highest part of the Krk island. Due to its rocky terrain and lack of vegetation, this area is also known as the moon hill. Then, we’ll go down to the Trigeta canyon. Here, we’ll need a climbing belt, helmet and technical equipment, as it gets more narrow the more we descend.
Please note you need a good fitness level for this trip. And you’ll require basic climbing knowledge. If you do so, and want to join this adventure, send me a request. It will be a wonderful trip you won’t forget!

Dean was very attentive to all. Easy to talk to and informative
Dean was very helpful and responsive to our enquiries. He was enthusiastic and devoted to show the prettiest side of Tre Cime to us. Although we were a bit behind, Dean was patient to wait for us and cater to our speed. Great experience!!

Dean is an excellent guide. He\'s friendly and conscientious and throughout or trip was focused on getting us to achieve our hiking goals while being aware of our abilities and experience. We chose a relatively tough hike (8hrs, 1,700m elevation gain) but Dean made sure we completed it safely and at a good pace. He also took photos throughout so we could concentrate on the hiking and shared them with us later. He was also good company on the hike. I would thoroughly recommend his services.
Dean was simply wonderful ! Sure footed and quick to notice when we needed a break. Conversation was easy and he was very pleasant and professional. We had a fantastic time and would absolutely hike with Dean again. What an enjoyable experience!!!

We were looking for a hike suitable for 4 adults with reasonable experience in hiking.Dean not only crafted a 5 day activity for us but was also able to adjust for routes to fit our needs during the hike itself. Dean proved to be a great guide with both knowledge and an amazing attitude and was simply so much fun to be with, Dean also went \'the extra mile\' for us taking some of us to special activities which we did not plan for. If you are looking for hiking in Slovenia and getting an experience of a life time - I would highly recommend Dean. 5 starts all the way (And if there 6 he would get them as well :) ) Dean, thank you so much !
Dean was prompt and super knowledgeable about the area we were going to. He guided us safely to Slemenova Spica to enjoy the Julian Alps. As two girls from the city, we don\'t have much hiking experience, and he was patient and super helpful. We enjoyed our trip so much and it has been the highlight of our Slovenia trip. Thanks once again, Dean, for taking us on this experience!
He guided us to really fun hiking depending on the weather ,our skill and preference.We had a great time.
Dean is a super experienced guide, he is very qualified to do all sorts of mountineering too if you are interested to try. I had a good time learning how to do snow shoeing and he is very patient in teaching me and assessing my abilities to suggest different routes which is suitable for my build and stamina. It was great and safe to have him as a guide because he knows the terrain well and that is good to know.
