DAY TRIP TO LUKOMIR
Meet the inhabitants of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s most remote village, eat homemade pita and gaze down into the depths from the rim of Europe’s second deepest canyon – on a hike or a trip by car.
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.
Please wear sturdy and comfortable shoes, remember refillable water bottles and in hot weather a hat and sunscreen.

Urban hike is perfect for those who want to get out and spend time in nature yet don’t feel ready to cover very long distances.
At this tour, I was able to see the famous mahalas, the remarkable part of Sarajevo that makes it look so pretty from the valley when looking up at the hills surrounding the city. During the hike I saw different notable buildings (which are often omitted in the tour guide books?!), learned more about the traditional Bosnian architecture and culture, got to be smitten by of the best panoramic views of Sarajevo.
Not to mention that it was a great workout after which you are rewarded by a hearty lunch in a beautiful restaurant specialised in Bosnian cuisine.
Something else I would like to highlight as I did several tours with .Cheyf. You don’t feel like a tourist with them, bit rather like a local who spends time with good friends — that’s how extravert and accommodating Kathi and Numa are. Check them out — rest assured you will want to come back over and over again.
