We spend a total of four nights in the friendly pension Kandilj, located next to the Old town of Sarajevo, where all rooms are en suite. We stay two nights in a traditional mountain hut in the village of Umoljani, heated by wood-burning stoves. The hut has shared toilets and showers and 3-4 person rooms. Our final night in the mountains is in Hostel Feri, a newly rebuilt mountain chalet with en suite rooms.
All breakfasts, 5 lunches and 3 dinners included.
The difficulty of this trip depends very much on the snow conditions, and our final route will be dictated by the conditions, altough in general you should expect the following: Grade: B/C Altitude gain: between 200-600 metres ascent on most days. Some of the ascents are quite steep, snowshoes can be removed if necessary. Walking time will usually be around four to six hours walking, plus photo, lunch and snack breaks; the longest day is up to 8 hours. Distance walked: averages about 7 kms (4.5 miles) but will feel longer in the snow.
Normal group size and age
Normally 7 to 15 plus local leader. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Moderate/Challenging. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
