I want to acknowledge especially my guide, Jakub. He was amazing in so many ways. He knew the area thoroughly. He was also full of information about the area- it’s history, geology, flora, fauna, culture. In addition to all this, Jakub was a patient coach. He was always looking after me and ensuring that I was safe, hydrated and happy. I could not have asked for a more perfect companion.

Jakub Doubic


Jakub Doubic brings an irresistible sense of fun to every adventure. Born and raised in the Czech Republic, Jakub is a global citizen. Traveling from Europe to the US and Canada, north Africa, and Asia, he has made the whole world his playground for mountain biking, rock climbing, mountaineering, ocean windsurfing, kitesurfing, and diving. His masters degree in computer engineering certainly did not keep him from his passion for the outdoors and his gift with group leadership.

“Life is a never ending learning process for me. New places and guests make it interesting every summer. New challenges to approach and solve, new people to meet. I am inspired by our bigsmall planet – how can you get bored?”

Jakub’s depth and breadth of experience comes from many years as a guide and instructor helping people of all ability levels with hiking, skiing, biking, and rock climbing.

“My favorite part of leading the group is sharing the great outdoor places worth visiting with our guests. With the right approach, everyone can enjoy it!”
