GregaOwner and guide
Tourism and sports are the two things Grega loves the most. Thirty years ago when MTB in Slovenia was still developing, Grega was already competing in XC and falling in love with biking. After graduating at Faculty of Tourism in Portoroz, Grega was employed as a marketing manager in Bohinj and later as instructor and programme manager at Vocational College for Catering and Tourism Bled, teaching students the art of guiding and guest entertainment. During his time in school the idea of Hike&Bike came up and Grega put his heart and soul in it. “I love the concept of being active, explore new places and enjoy a good meal at the end of the day” Grega says and if you like to do the same make sure you join Grega on one of his guided tours.
