Guides
MT Sobek: Slovenia Julian Alps Hiking

Ivana Bole
With guiding experience of more than a decade, Ivana has specialized in presenting her home country of Slovenia to visitors from all over the world. Besides being a professional guide, you might find her elbows deep in soil taking care of her plants or working in the garage on one of her vintage cars. As an English double major in linguistics and literature, her language skills are top notch, spiced with a bit of an Aussie twang which stuck with her since the time she spent down under. Her love for travel took Ivana to all corners of the world, from RV road tripping in the southern USA, trekking in Patagonia, camper vanning through New Zealand, 4x4 camping trip in South Africa or a motorcycle tour across the islands of Indonesia.





Roman Krizanic
After finishing his studies in Chinese language and culture, Roman spent three years exploring Asia before returning to his homeland of Slovenia. To keep the adventure alive, he became an outdoor guide over 10 years ago and enjoys discovering the hidden corners of Slovenia and nearby Croatia. Roman loves to combine his extensive outdoor experience with his passion for gourmet extravaganzas of Balkan cuisine. He is well known for his personal touch and good sense of humor.





Anze Princic
As a child, Anze joined the scouts and discovered a passion for adventure and the outdoors that he’s taken with him through his life. If it’s not wandering through the Georgian Caucasus or tasting delicacies at an Iranian local market, he is testing his limits and endurance on Slovenian ground. When not guiding, he is the head of a fantastic team of people, working in one of the most famous Slovenian mountain huts in the center of Triglav national park.
