Natural beauty, a rich cultural heritage and warm hospitality
Bosnia & Herzegovina and Montenegro have for centuries been the crossroads of ancient civilisations, with a magical mixture of European and Near Eastern culture.
The diversity is very clear, from the vibrant cities of Kotor and Budva, to the Oriental influence of places such as Mostar and Sarajevo, and the numerous tiny hamlets where the traditional, tranquil way of life has remained unchanged for years. Here we find a unique fusion of traditions, religions and architecture.
Small wooden mosques, secluded Orthodox monasteries, Catholic chapels and Jewish synagogues can be found within metres of each other.
The raw natural beauty of this region is truly breathtaking, with ancient forests, rugged peaks and the beautiful waters of the Adriatic coastline, where we explore the the magnificent bay of Kotor and make a stop in the wonderful Croatian city of Dubrovnik.
What makes this trip responsible?
We have an excellent long-term relationship with the local operator who employ and train all leaders. We provide refresher training with a focus on Responsible Tourism, so our local leaders can educate our clients locally on helping to preserve the way of life in their area. Tourism is extremely new here and we are helping to create a new possible career path for active individuals here. During our visit we also support the economy of small villages and communities that we pass through, using their smaller restaurants, traders and shops. This ensures revenue generated from tourism is not confined to the larger cities and well known tourist spots.
