About

Alex Crevar is a writer and editor. He has reported travel stories as a regular contributor for publications such as The New York Times, National Geographic Travel, and Lonely Planet magazine for more than 20 years. In that time, Crevar has written articles about destinations in North America, South America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.

Crevar started as a profile writer for magazines, covering politicians, business leaders, entertainers, and religious figures. In the years following a stint in the Balkans — in the 1990s, in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina — he began working as a travel reporter.

Over the last decade, Crevar has worked to merge two concepts: sustainable tourism and responsible travel journalism. He consults tourism organizations and operators to develop best practices and was instrumental in the creation of the Via Dinarica hiking trail, which traverses the eight countries of the Western Balkans region and acts a cultural corridor across Southeastern Europe. As well as serving as a guest lecturer at universities, Crevar teaches pro bono travel journalism workshops in countries around the world with writers in developing tourism markets.

Crevar is a mountaineer and a cyclist. His belongings fit into one duffel. He lives in Zagreb, Croatia, and can be reached at acrevar@gmail.com.
