Qualified vet-turned-mountain bike guide in Slovenia, Blaž Harej is passionate about biking and nature (and tattoos!) in equal measure

“After qualifying as a vet I then spent many years working as a coach in the pharmaceuticals industry before realising that my destiny lay in the mountains, rather than the office.

“I still wanted to use my coaching skills, so now I can combine these skills with my passion for mountain biking, as a guide and trainer.

“Being able to spend a week or more with like-minded people, sharing my favourite trails in Slovenia and Croatia, and seeing riders improve their skills and grow in confidence day-by-day is the most satisfying feeling I know.”
