About us

Brief history

We have been playing with the idea of founding this travel company for many years. After spending time abroad, we have realized how beautiful is our home, Slovakia and how beautiful are also places which we have many times discovered just by chance abroad, as tourists looking for adventure. We are three people, who care about nature, preserving the values and traditions. We want to show the tourists a different way of travelling, adventure, but at the same time comfort and safety, connection with nature, discovering local culture and hidden beauties.

About me

I was born in Rajecká dolina under Martinské hole mountains. From my childhood, I spent time in nature and travelled with my parents through Europe. Later, I started to visit other mountains and discovered the beauty of Tatras. This relationship with nature led me to study Landscape ecology at the university and I got new knowledge about ecosystems. I have started with mountain climbing, skimountaineering and I became a voluntary mountain rescuer. At university, I have met friends with similar interests and we have travelled across Albania, Romania, Canary Islands and Balkans. We got to know the whole Slovakia, from the smallest mountains to Tatras, and gradually further to Austrian Alps, via ferratas in Dolomites and Mont Blanc. I have also done plenty of skimountaineering hikes and competitions in Slovakia and the Alps. During the last 3 years, I have worked and lived in Norway, where I continued to discover new places, famous Trolltunga, Rallarvegen, waterfalls, cities as Bergen or Oslo. Now, I would like to share those beautiful places and experiences at guided trips with the professional approach of a mountain leader, friend and landscape ecologist in one person.

My story

I am coming from a small village in Liptov region, Slovakia. From my teenage, I liked the activities in nature and I spent all my free time in the mountains, biking, skiing or hiking. I have always perceived Slovakia as a country with huge cultural and natural potential and I decided that once it will be me who will contribute to better visibility of Slovakia. I started to study tourism. I worked at mountain huts in the beautiful scenery of the Alps, during several summer seasons. I also spent part of my study in Germany and within it, one month field trip in Mexico. After I finished university, I was overwhelmed by Norway. During five years I had the possibility to discover a beautiful country with fascinating nature. I worked as a receptionist in Odda and as a nature guide to Trolltunga. Now it is my mission to show the beauties of Slovakia, Norway and other places, which has once fascinated me to the others, and together with the team Slavic contribute to travelling experiences of many of you.

From my life

Adventurer, scout, but mainly photographer

My name is Lukáš, my friends call me ,,Kuko". That´s my scout name. It was scouting what has stimulated my passion for adventure, however I have felt a love to nature from my childhood. I am coming from Spišská Nová Ves, currently living in Banská Bystrica. I studied landscape ecology at Technical University in Zvolen. During my study, I have travelled a lot, mainly by hitchhiking. I was driven by desire for adventure and knowledge. I have visited 33 countries, from which I got the most fascinated by New Zealand, where I have spent few months. Also thanks to this experience I realized how beautiful country I have at home. Slovakia is worth to visit, discover its corners from a different angle. I can offer you an experience out from your comfort zone, services of a professional photographer, but also finding the peace  at the most beautiful places in Slovakia.
