Luka Podlogar

Born near Lake Bled, Slovenian native Luka Podlogar began hiking the Julian Alps as a child by his father's side. He has worked in the travel industry for nearly a decade—as a high-ropes course instructor in summer, as a snowboard and ski instructor in winter, plus as a guide for white-water rafting and canyoning expeditions. A semi-professional snowboarder and multi-adventure guide, Luka calls himself a “self-employed outdoor enthusiast” eager to share his knowledge of Slovenian culture and his personal experiences in these mountains.
