Our story & Team

Our  Story

Natural Croatia Adventure Travel is a travel agency that provides adventure tours in the natural beauty of Croatian landscape. Made for adventurers that love to explore their limits towards creating adventure and feeling adrenaline in their veins. It was created from love and passion of our founder, Petra when she decided to leave current career in IT project management, and devote herself to making people happy.

We work whole year for these few weeks of holidays, then it turns out that we work for THESE moments in our lives. Let us make something unforgettable out of every moment of it!

Petra Ban the founder of Natural Croatia Adventure Travel

Sometimes just hiking to the highest peak, and looking to the sea from up above gets you excited, and sometimes the thrill is in climbing the rocks, sailing with the wind or flying and gliding as a bird! We will take you the backstage of Croatian nature - old, mystic trails, well known to the natives and their sheep, but not so much to others.
We organize one or multi day tours, and whole week packages that include guided or self-guided programs. Activities covered are walking/hiking, biking and rock climbing, all performed outdoor in the nature. Activity levels can be adopted to your wishes and capabilities, alongside with the length of programme.
Easier level adventures or Soft Adventures are programmes tailor made for the people that love nature, but do not need too much adrenaline. High activity level Adrenaline adventures are designed with passionate nature lovers in mind, that need to feel more alive, like to climb a mountain - not trough the trail - but vertically through the rock, the ones that like to sail on heavy sea. In addition, we create Special Adventures - they are custom - designed and accommodated to one's personal needs and wishes. Special Adventures are introducing you into more living in the nature and merging with nature mode.
We are in this because we LOVE IT! And we want you to feel the same.

After my kids, Natural Croatia is the biggest project of my life – so expect the best from it!
