Embark on an Adventure: Exploring the Unseen Beauty of Croatia

Relaxploration - All about it

"Relaxploration" is a term that combines elements of both "relaxation" and "exploration." 

It represents a concept where one engages in leisurely activities or experiences that promote relaxation while simultaneously exploring new places, environments, or activities. In essence, it embodies the idea of finding calmness, rejuvenation, and peace of mind through exploration and discovery. 

Whether it involves unwinding on a serene beach, meandering through picturesque landscapes, or immersing oneself in cultural experiences, relaxploration offers a harmonious blend of relaxation and exploration for a fulfilling and enriching journey.

How it all started

The term "relaxploration" was coined in 2008 during a memorable paddling journey embarked upon by two individuals, Yogi and Bafo. This expedition spanned a 200 km route, serving as Bafo's initiation into the company as a guide. As they paddled, Yogi and Bafo found joy in their adventure, often indulging in lighthearted moments where they playfully adopted Jamaican accents. It was during these moments of camaraderie that they melded the words "relaxation" and "exploration," creating the catchy and evocative term, "relaxploration."

Living on the island, where life is relaxed and easygoing, Yogi and Bafo sought adventure without the adrenaline rush typically associated with extreme activities. Kayaking proved to be the perfect fit, offering a blend of excitement and tranquility. The term "relaxploration" seamlessly encapsulated their ethos, aligning perfectly with the motto "Pomalo," meaning "relax, take it easy." Since its inception, "relaxploration" has become synonymous with its approach to life and guiding philosophy, embodying the spirit of leisurely exploration and enjoyment of the journey.
