Bosnia is the perfect place for a winter adventure and where better to start than in Sarajevo, the host city of the 1984 Winter Olympics. The wild and remote mountain ranges surrounding Bosnia's capital are ideal for adventurous exploration. Climbing through snow-covered and tranquil forests we follow crystal-clear streams to snow-covered summits.
This two days itinerary also offers plentiful opportunities to discover rich Bosnian homemade cuisine and highland culture.

    Itinerary

    Transfer to Bjelasnica and Hike around Umoljani village

    We will start day with morning transfer of 1 hour to Umoljani Village on the Olympic mountain of Bjelasnica. 
    From the traditional style Bosnian village of Umoljani we'll trek to the watermills and beautiful source used for centuries as energy to grind wheat into flour. We hug the ridge until Rakitnica Canyon opens up before us. After 45 minutes of an uphill through thick snow we reach the Cascades of Studeni Potok. Here, at certain times of the year, the stream falls in numerous cascades into Rakitnica River, more than 300 metres below. Following the stream up we hit Studeno Polje (Field) and the serpentine formations of Studeni Potok (Stream). Here we'll have a super view of Obalj and the long flat valley of Studeno Polje (Fields).

    The shepherd’s summer village of Gradina is just up the road and and from here we will slowly ascend today’s peak, Saruk (1,828m) where we will take our lunch break. From here we will return through the “back door” to Umoljani Village for a welcome homemade dinner.


    Snowshoeing to the top of Crveni kuk (1,733m), Visocica Mountain

    On second day, winding through Bjelasnica's back roads we'll reach the Rakitnica River and cross over towards Visocica Mountain. Tucked in the hills just above the ridged walls of this mountain sits Sinanovici Village (1,250m). The walk up will take us through beech forest and then open rocky terrain up to the summit of Crveni Kuk Peak (1,733m). 


    Amazing 360 degrees views

    You will be rewarded with far reaching views of the highest mountains in Bosnia & Herzegovina, as well as those in neighbouring Montenegro. 


    Stunning two snowshoeing days

    From the summit there are wonderful views of the surrounding villages, as well as mountains of Maglić, Volujak, Zelengora in Sutjeska National Park, Lelija, Treskavica and Prenj.

    We descend via an alternative shorter trail to the mountain hut where we take a break for some hot tea, cocoa or even a cold beer, before return to Sarajevo
