Meet Petra

Petra Draškovič Pelc is an enthusiastic traveler, photographer and nature guide, lover of Northern horizons, a curious admirer of nature, author of countless articles in Slovenia and abroad, and holds a PhD in biomedical science but she found her calling in nature photography and guiding.

She enjoys silence, peace, the tracks of large carnivores, the smell of forest in the rain and the beauty of the light-flooded wilds of all the untouched corners of the world like Alaska, Lapland or Altai Mountains deep in Siberia, as well as the beauty of her local Kočevsko area and Slovenia.

Throughout her diverse work of guiding, photographing and writing, she tries to express love towards nature and its preservation, bringing us closer to the beauty of the landscape she loves, as well as to develop active, boutique and inspiring tourism where you can truly experience the forest.

“Bringing people to the forest, showing them their magic light, revealing the secrets of the forest, seeding love for caring of nature and making friends at the same time” is not only my passion, it is a way of my life.

“And moments like this change you forever.“

'Life has secrets pathways, and only your heart knows how to get there.'

When you look with open heart and curious eyes, everything is a miracle.
