TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

  • Learn about local life from villagers
  • Admire the traditional dress in the Dinaric Highlands
  • Enjoy scenery and amazing view of the Rakitnica Canyon

After an hour and a half drive beginning in Sarajevo, we arrive in Lukomir, Bosnia’s highest and most isolated mountain village. The traditional lifestyles of the Dinaric highlanders are still practiced here, providing a unique window into Europe’s past. Traditional dress is still worn and goes hand in hand with the more familiar signs of everyday life, such as electricity and running water.

On the edge of the village, you will be treated to a breathtaking view of Rakitnica Canyon, which drops 800m below, as well as the neighboring Obalj and Visočica mountains. We will introduce you to the villagers and you can learn first-hand how they live in this beautiful but difficult environment. Next, we hike to the Peruce Waterfall (about 40 meters tall) before returning to Gornji (upper) Lukomir.

At the end of the day, you will also have the opportunity to see and purchase local handicrafts.

*Option: We also organize overnight stays and a daily 7-hour circular hike around Lukomir and Umoljani highland villages for those of you interested in experiencing village life and the secluded Rakitnica canyon. Contact us for more information.
