TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

  • Enjoy emerald waters of Trnovacko glacier lake
  • Great hike with views of highest Bosnian summits, Maglic & Volujak
  • Raft Europe's deepest canyon and enjoy an evening campfire

Day 1:

We leave Sarajevo and take a transfer toward southeast Bosnia, in direction of Foča town. Today we’ll be off far into the Sutjeska National Park. After two hours drive, we arrive in the deep and picturesque canyon of Sutjeska River. During this tour, we will veer off towards Dragoš Saddle and take a peek at the Skakavac waterfall deep in Perucica’s valley. We will walk around the forest that is thick, and teeming with endemic flora.

From here we’ll continue on to Prijevor for more incredible views of this majestic park. Maglic, Zelengora, and Volujak will tower around us….many have compared the experience to Yellowstone National Park. At the edge of the forest, we descend towards the Glacier Lake Trnovacko, which is set at 1,500 meters in the middle of a huge amphitheatre of rocky peaks. Then (weather permitting) we enjoy an icy cold swim (only for the very fit) and tasty lunch where you can relax and enjoy some of Bosnia’s best peaks towering around you. After lunch we head back to civilization, enjoying the soft glow of the setting sun above Zelengora and Maglic, Bosnia’s highest peaks.

Tonight we stay at simple wooden bungalows next to the river, enjoying the sound of water and campfire.
