founder / guide
Sport and adventure was always big part of Uroš’s life. When he was still playing tennis at a high level, Uroš found snowboarding and soon changed his obsession. After a back injury, he stayed in touch with snowboarding as an instructor and started sail racing. Today he is professionally involved in sailing and sailmaking. With different teams, Uroš won pretty much all important races in the Adriatic and participated in races in different locations around the world. He’s biggest racing achievement to date is being the first Slovenian to ever win a transatlantic race. On an expedition in 2016 Uroš and team sailed pretty much to the end of the World – 80°N is where ice starts and is impossible to sail further. Uroš’s affair with Adriatic started long before that, when he was just a kid. After many amazing sailing, diving and kayaking adventures, he established Frontier Adriatic. On one side to promote this unique corner of the world and on the other to give people from around the world chance to experience and learn about it.
customer and public relations
If Uroš is the engine of Frontier Adriatic then Nina is definitely the heart. With her warmth and great feeling for people she is taking care of the team and customers. Nina actually finished law school and later worked for different banks, as well as for Slovenian Basketball Federation. But like everybody else here, she is outside person, she just loves to travel and is big fan of sport, she is especially good in winter sports, but she also likes to take her wakeboard for a ride, or just enjoy cruising on a sailboat along Adriatic coast.
young explorer / adventurer
Is our son and young adventurer. Being a young kid, everything seems pretty new to Luka, so he is always on a mission to explore. Luka brings adventure to the office, so staying in the office and not being outside is much easier whenever he is around.
Uros was a great skipper - he made it so that we didn't need to worry about anything and adjusted trip on the fly, he saw what we enjoyed. You can tell he's a father - he was great with the kids
Uros is a great guide and all around pleasant fellow and he tought us all the ins and outs of sailing as we went along, even though our group was a bunch of newbies on deck 🙂 We already knew Dalmatia is beautiful as we usually go on holidays there, but traveling with a boat was a totally different experience, we visited some really amazing bays, coastal towns and small islands we've never even heard of before - needless to say our holidays were a blast. The only bad thing is that it ended - unfortunately we all had jobs to return to 🙂 See you next year!
Sailing with Uros as a skipper was a crazy experience. We laughed all day, we discovered secret bays, the most beautiful beach on the Adriatic (hint: it is in the Kornati arhipelago) , coolest restaurants (no way I would find them alone) and some funky bars, at the corners of the Adriatic coast and islands. In short - I fell in love with sailing, and my next mission is to make my husband, a clastrophobic pilot who is not comfortable on the sea and until now never set a foot on a sailing boat, fall in love with sailing as well. With Urke, as we call Uros, I am sure I will succed 🙂

In one simple sentence:
“Because we love doing it.”
Frontier Adriatic comprises the six countries surrounding the Adriatic Sea (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia). Our playground is a unique place where the mountains meet the sea and we are exploiting and discovering all of its beauties. With its emerald waters surrounding more than 1300 islands, numerous beaches, coves, caves and cliffs, this place is just paradise calling for pristine adventure.
And where the coastline ends, beautiful mountains in hinterlands starts – full of natural and national parks, canyons, beautiful rivers, waterfalls and forests.
And on top of its natural beauties, Adriatic culture and history is rich as Romans, Byzantines and Venetians had great impact on the area. One just has to fall in love with Adriatic, its people, charm, gastronomy, well preserved old towns, castles, palaces, monuments, native architecture and of course our adventures and outdoor lifestyle.
