tour description

On Bjelašnica Mountain you will dive deep into the world of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s legends: you will learn the stories about the stone mosque of Umoljani and the Haggadah and the petrified dragon.

You will hike for about two and a half hours across the enchanted Studeni Potok plain and along the second deepest canyon in Europe, the Rakitnica canyon, to Lukomir, the most remote mountain village in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In Lukomir you will meet the inhabitants who still live today as they did hundreds of years ago – from farming, sheep breeding and manual labour. You will enjoy a typical Bosnian lunch – homemade from fresh, local ingredients.

Then it’s the 2.5 hour hike back to Umoljani, from where you drive back to Sarajevo.
