Hi, I’m Mladen, the founder and owner of Peak and Paddle Croatia. How did I end up here? Well, it couldn’t be different. Since I was a kid, being outside was one of my priorities on daily base. Sometimes that was a problem because other didn’t know where I was, so navigation was one of the first lessons that I’ve learned. Sports were and are part of my daily life. For the past ten years I’ve experienced so many outdoor activities around Europe and North America, both privately and as an instructor. But, the last five years I spent most of the time on the water, kayaking between over 1,000 Croatian islands and New England in United States of America.
Excellence is on the top of my list of values and therefore I’m dedicated to ongoing and continuing education. Currently I’m a holder of American Canoe Association (ACA ) Level 3 Coastal kayaking certification, Wilderness First Aid certification (SOLO), Boat skipper license, and Mountain bike guide license.
Couple of years ago the idea of starting my own company was born and since than I’m following modern trends in adventure industry. International experience gives me a much broader picture of client needs so I design tours intentionally meeting all needs for pleasant, safe and fun vacation following my personal philosophy: “Excellent tour or no tour!“
I’m looking forward to meet you and I really would like to hear your story!
