This is the most popular one day trip from Sarajevo. We start our tour on the southern slopes of Bjelašnica mountain, from medieval Umoljani village. We will make a short stop on ancient necropolis at Dolovi, and then continue towards the great serpent - Ažbaha,to tell the legent of the birth of Umoljani.
We will then pass through Gradina - highland summer village, and go to Studeni Potok stream which takes us to a series of small waterfalls that fall 402m down into Rakitnica canyon. On the way, we will visit 40-metre Peruće Waterfall before continuing to Lukomir.
Continuing through the canyon, after one hour's walk, we get to our last stop - Lukomir village. A testament to old times. Village that lives the same life for more than 600 years,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 neighbouring mountains. We will have picnic lunch or traditional homemade lunch prepared by our hosts. You will also have the opportunity to purchase local handcrafts, before returning back to Umoljani.
Lukomir is the highest and most isolated village in Bosnia. This hike is also the most popular hike in the country. And for a good reason. It offers all: amazing views, long walks, culture, history and legends.
