I was born and raised in Sarajevo. I work for Green Visions as a mountain guide and leader, mostly during the summer months, since 2008. High school and University years I spent studying abroad, at Boston, USA, which was my home for about 10 years. I love sports and played actively football, while I lived in the States. However, outdoor sports are my passion, such as hiking and biking. I've been attracted to the nature here in Bosnia and around Sarajevo, ever since I was a child. I also work as snowboard instructor during the winter months.

I was born and raised in small town in north part of Herzegovina, Konjic. As my town is surrounded with many beautiful mountains, hills, lakes and rivers, it's natural that I am a great lover of nature, and freak about hiking, biking, and other outdoor activities.

I was born in 1990 in Sarajevo and became a Green Visions leader in 2016. That was the same year I got my Masters degree from University of Sarajevo in IT. I wasn't always a "nature freak" like I am today - there was a time I was not as much into mountains and I was spending many hours in front of computer. Spending more and more time in the mountains had a lot of influence on my lifestyle and my health: I was feeling better, healthier, had more energy and I was stress relieved. Nowadays, I enjoy many outdoor activities, such as hiking, trail running and snowboarding. One of my hobbies are filming nature and making short videos out of it as well.
I was born and spent my childhood in Vareš, a small mountain community situated at the foot of the Mountain Zvijezda. Having the mountain right at my doorsteps it was natural that the hills, forest and valley became my playground from an early age on. Beside the love for the outdoors I am an enthusiastic traveler, love to see and learn about different cultures. That enthusiasm brought me to major Europe and world destination, where I discovered my passion for working as a guide. Now I am certified mountain guide, speak English and German fluently and happy to work with Green Visions. The work for Green Visions gives me the opportunity to enjoy a healthy environment and for all to guide and show all the beauties of Bosnia and the Balkans to our guests. Welcome!
Faruk is one of those people who will instantly make you to fall in love with the mountains, sharing his passion and enthusiasm about them. He is professional flute player and for years he played in Sarajevo Symphonic Orchestra. During the war years in Bosnia he moved to Netherlands where he spent more than 10 years of his life. At that time on his bike he crossed, not only countries of Benelux, but also good part of Europe. He also traveled by bike to Bonn, Germany, birthplace of his favorite composer, Ludwig van Beethoven, to pay a tribute to him. There is even documentary about that event, filmed back in 2004 named "Symphony for a street Musician", which tells about his life at that moment as street musician, his love for classical music and life he left behind as professional musician. After his return to Bosnia, he became member of our team in 2008 and since that time he shares his passion for mountains with our guests, on bike or on foot.

The biggest passions of mine are hiking and cycling. Adventure has never been away from my week schedule and I think I will never have enough of it. Beside being active Mountain Hiking and Biking Leader with Green Visions for last 2 years, I am member of the NGO "Giro di Sarajevo" which is promoting urban cycling in Sarajevo, trying to force local government to provide cyclists with better infrastructure. As a member of Mountain Rescue Service, I guess you should be safe while hiking/biking with me. Apart from that, I am starting up a company that is manufacturing smart electric bicycles. When the time comes for it, I want to be able to say that I lived life to the fullest and regret nothing. Our time here is limited, therefore I believe that we owe it to ourselves to have as much fun as possible. After all, is there anything better than a good hike or bike ride filled with breathtaking views?

Ever since a very young age she has been a big fan of wandering around nature. Thus hiking and biking routes around Sarajevo have made her know her homeland and local people in an unique way. The cycling paths & trails in the Western Balkans link many natural wonders and heritage sites, and for Sabina, they have been a great way of meeting people and cultures. She is a passionate traveler, cyclist and runner always ready to embark on unexpected journeys. Visiting Iceland was, one of her, dream come true experiences.
I am born and raised in Sarajevo, in the family of passionate mountaineers and travelers. Having that in mind,and the fact that Sarajevo is surrounded with mountains, I spent quite a lot of time of my childhood exploring our beautiful nature. Also, I spent all my summers in my grandparents house at Mt. Majevica playing with goats and rabbits and learning about the agriculture. I joined Green Visions team because I love spending as much time as I can in the nature and I want to help in promoting and developing environmental awareness, love of nature and the need to preserve a healthy environment of Bosnia and Herzegovina and region. Because of that I have also started my own blog www.wildinthebalkans.com.
