Elvira Hajdarevic

Cultural & Mountain Guide

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. :)

Evelin Balta

Cultural & Mountain Guide

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!

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.

Thus hiking and biking routes around Sarajevo have made her know her homeland and local people in an unique way.

Hiking and biking paths & trails in Bosnia and Herzegovina link lots of natural wonders and heritage sites so, for Sabina, it's a great way of meeting people and cultures. She is a passionate traveler always ready for unexpected journeys. Visiting Iceland was, one of her, dream come true experiences.

"For me, working with Green Visions means to be on a constant vacation and doing things I like, such as outdoors activities and meeting people. That's something I enjoy and makes me grow."

Hills around Sarajevo are her favorite part of the city. Can be seen zooming around Sarajevo and Trebevic Mountain on her bicycle or hiking around with her dog along mountains. 

Sabina Sirco

Cultural & Mountain Guide

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.

My parents passed on to me their love for social sciences, so I decided to follow their path and get masters degree in Sociology.

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.thewildone.me.
