Let’s introduce the founders. 

Bartel Van Riet – nature & world explorer

Bartel Van Riet has been discovering the world since he was young. Developing an impressive savoir faire and savoir vivre of free nature. Although he visited wonders all over the world, most of his preferred destinations lay in Europe.

“There are so many unique places to visit and people to meet. Sometimes we just cannot see the beauty that is just around the corner”. Taking people on a journey, and letting them discover the widths of nature together, is one of the things he finds the most joy in.

Bartel scouts destinations and discovers places no other team has gone before.


Suzanne Somers – travel & event professional

A 10-day trip to Brazil, and a 2 month trip to New Zealand at the age of 17, sparked an enormous interest in Suzanne. Since that moment, travel has been her favorite activity. Discovering places, exploring habits, cultures, tasting and traveling through a new destination opened her heart.

Suzanne is an independent travel designer creating and producing experiences for companies and groups. With Heartcore she has the opportunity to combine her passion for organization and creating unique experiences within travel.

Sensible as she is, she understands groups and has the highest attention to detail; from how the onboarding of a traveler is done, to how the surprise dinner at the mountaintop needs that specific touch to stand out completely.
