Why you should consider a group trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2024 (before the crowds roll in!)

Picture this: you’re strolling along a hidden canyon, the sound of birds and a soft breeze stirring the leaves is all you hear. The scent of wild mint ingles with the warm breeze. Suddenly, you cross a corner and there it is: nestled at the edge of Europe’s second-deepest canyon: A small village, stone houses with tin-covered roofs to withstand the strong winds and weather. Sheep grazing on rock-fenced meadows, the bark of a dog announcing your arrival to the villagers… This isn’t your typical European jaunt! This is Bosnia and Herzegovina – a treasure chest of off-the-beaten-path adventures waiting to be unlocked.

But Bosnia, with its complex history and diverse landscapes, can feel daunting to tackle solo, we know that. But we have just the right thing for you: Dip your toes into the magic of this hidden European gem with a group trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina! Why should you ditch the guidebook, forget the lone research and do a group trip in 2024? Well, let’s see…

Let a local lead you – and experience the country firsthand!

Illyrians, Romans, Slavs, Bogmils, Ottomans, Austro-Hungarian, Communists, Socialists – Bosnia and Herzegovina’s history is a patchwork of religions, cultures, and traditions. And how can explain the connections and legacy of those religions, empires and people better than a local guide how is connecting the dots for you? With us, you won’t get a walking Wikipedia, you will get a tour guide who tells the story of the cities and countries, how will paint a living picture of this country’s diversity instead of just pointing at bullet holes.

True hidden Spots unraveled. 

We get it, ever since the rise of social media, everybody claims to have discovered hidden gems. But: Will you stumble upon a secret waterfall only known to shepherds and locals of the region, when you hike Bosnia and Herzegovina’s trails alone?

Us local guides, we are your ticket to unlock hidden valleys, forgotten trails, untouched wilderness and all the stories that lie within them.

Culture that’s more than just “instagrammable”.

Bosnia’s cultural kaleidoscope goes beyond the tourists paths. But many locals are shy to share their stories – let alone in English language. With a local guide breaking down the shyness on both sides as a mediator, you’ll clink glasses of rakia with mountain families, knit woollen socks with old ladies or share a laugh with a coppersmith. With a guided tour, a group trip, you feel the pulse of everyday life, not just a curated tourist experience.
