This tour will begin with a ride from Sarajevo to Umoljani village, accross Bjelašnica mountain which is the Olympic mountain and one of the most amazing in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
After approximately one-hour ride we will continue on foot.
Umoljani village is mostly known for Stoned Dragon, Mosque and Studeni Potok (Cold Creek). Once we reach Umoljani prepare yourself for truly amazing local lunch: Begova čorba (local stew), Krompiruša (potato pie) or Sirnica (cheese pie) and Burek (meat pie), with again local yoghurt and salad.
What should you do there? Enjoy exploring the village and its local traditions, meet the people and taste some Bosnian coffee and local-herbs tea with honey. Also you can buy some handicrafts, enjoy breathtaking amazing views of Rakitnica Canyon, learn the stories of Bosnian medieval tombstones (stećci), feel relaxed in the natural ambience.
Your hiking trip continues and after roughly 3 to 4 hours of walk and climbing you will reach Lukomir, the highest inhabitated mountain village in Bosnia and Herzegovina. At almost 1,500 m above sea level, Lukomir is most isolated village in the country, inaccessible in the wintertime due to high snowfall. Lukomir is known for its traditional attire, and the women still wear the hand-knitted costumes that have been worn for centuries. These semi-nomadic tribes have come from Podveležje region of Herzegovina, and eventually made permanent settlements in the Rakitnica Canyon and later in the place where it's currently located. At one point just before you reach the village, you'll see the magnificent Canyon and surrounding mountains of Treskavica, Visočica and Bjelašnica. After short hike you will reach Lukomir and have a deserved resting time. There you can have local coffee and some food as well. If you're lucky enough and if it's particular time of the year, you can see the fields of blueberries, rose-hip, mushrooms, thyme and other herbs. Prepare for the 3 to 4 hours long come back to Umoljani, where the van will be awaiting for you and drive you back to Sarajevo.
