Is This Trip for You?

Activity Level 4- Moderate/Challenging

This itinerary includes 5 daywalks through moderate to difficult terrain, where you will need to carry a day pack. We usually walk between 4-8 hours a day, with a picnic lunch taken on the way. The trails are mostly rocky and uneven and with that often rough and stony underfoot. The daywalks involve steady ascents and descents (maximum 1,000m). The walk on day 3 will be long but worthwhile.

There are steep, long drops on sections of this trip, as well as paths that traverse along ridge lines. The daywalk on day 3 is not recommended for clients who suffer from vertigo.

Following a review of all our trips we have categorised this trip as generally not suitable for persons of reduced mobility. However if you are a regular traveller on such trips, please contact customer services to discuss the trip and your personal condition.

This is a peak that offers some of the best views of mountains to the south. After leaving our start point, a pleasant hike takes us through meadows and coniferous forests up to Bukovik hut, with wider and wider views of mountains in the distance and the city in the valley right below us. After a short break at Bukovik hut, we ascend the nearby Bukovik peak and continue from there through a beautiful pine forest to the Skakavac waterfall.

A soothing lunch break and some tea or coffee welcomes us here before we head down through thick forest to the base of the waterfall. Once we reach the base, a fantastic view of water, mist and forest awaits us. From here we wind through the forest to the small lodge, where we end our hike with an ice cold drink.

    Full day hike to Lukomir Highland village, Bosnia's highest village (1469m) and summit of Obalj (1,896m).

    Today we have a full daywalk in the Bjelasnica Mountains, home of the 1984 Winter Olympics, ascending Obalj peak (1,896m) and visiting Lukomir, Bosnia and Herzegovina's highest village (1,469m).

    From the traditional style Bosnian Mosque in the village of Umoljani, we walk to the Gradina, a village which locals of this area used for centuries as their base for summer pastures. From here we will start ascending toward Obalj ridge and slowly we will rise above Studeni potok (Studeni stream). The views will start to open in front of us. With the mountains to the south, Treskavica and Visocica will offer us fantastic and breathtaking scenes. Once we reach the slopes of Obalj, we will slowly continue and progress to the summit itself. From the peak, we'll see Lukomir village below us where we will descend from the top.

    Half day walk through the beautiful Rakitnica Canyon, or optional rafting along the Neretva River; transfer to Mostar.

    Today we have the option to go rafting deep into the Neretva Canyon or walk a beautiful ridge overlooking the Neretva and Rakitnica Canyon.

    The Neretva River is the emerald of Herzegovina, flowing over 200 kilometres from its source into the Adriatic Sea. In the upper canyon is some of the most beautiful rafting in Europe. The water is usually calm from Spring to Autumn, and the trip provides ample opportunity to enjoy the canyon and its unique flora and fauna. Depending on the season, there will be class 2-4 rapids. The trip lasts for 3-4 hours and costs approximately EUR 45 per person (paid locally).

    For those who prefer to keep on trekking, we continue on to the isolated hills around Kasici village for a magical canyon walk above the Neretva River. After crossing a suspension bridge we descend to meet the spectacular river itself where the rapids rush into the mouth of the relatively unexplored Rakitnica Canyon. The scenery here is truly breathtaking. After crossing another bridge at the mouth of the canyon we can rest either in one of the caves or on the numerous beaches.

    We return via Konjic to meet up with those who opted for the rafting. At the end of the day, we continue our journey to Mostar.

  • Day 8

    Morning in Mostar, visit iconic old bridge; afternoon transfer to Dubrovnik.

    We spend the morning exploring Mostar, the former oriental trading centre of Herzegovina, situated on the Neretva River. This city was regularly in the news when it was split during the conflict in the early 1990s. We will still see the scars of war, but these days Mostar is once again a warm and bustling place, with a fascinating history and architecture.

    We leave Mostar in the afternoon and head for Dubrovnik, arriving at approximately 5pm. On arrival, we have free time to explore. Dubrovnik is our final destination and a great way to end our week trekking. This magnificent walled town lies at the southernmost tip of Croatia. Formerly a prosperous trading centre, Dubrovnik is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its perfectly preserved Old Town and rich cultural life draw many visitors each year.

Transportation

During the trip we travel by air-conditioned minibus. The main roads are in generally good condition, but are very winding in places. At times on the mountain roads the ride is bumpy and slow.

Weather & Seasonality

Weather Information

Bosnia & Herzegovina enjoys a similar climate to most of central Europe - hot summers, cool springs and autumns and cold winters with considerable snowfall. We visit from June to September when temperatures will be generally warm (25-30ºC), but these temperatures will be a little lower in the mountains. Rain can fall at any time of the year, although in mid-summer it is more likely to come as short, sharp thunderstorms. Walking on Maglic and Volujak can be unpredictable and it has been known to hail in August!

Most groups prefer to present the money to the leader at the end of the trip with two separate envelopes (one for the leader and one for the driver). 

This is completely at your own discretion and to be used as a guideline only.

Important Information

On all guided trips

Although our leaders are well trained to deal with different capabilities, if they have any concerns about someone’s ability to safely partake in an activity, or their impact on other people’s enjoyment, we authorise them to take necessary action which, in some circumstances, may involve asking someone to miss that activity.

Although rarely enforced, by booking this trip you agree to section 14 of our Booking Conditions which clearly states that our leaders have the authority to do this. In these circumstances we will ensure anyone sitting out is safely provided for and offered alternative options where possible. Refunds will not be provided for activities missed and customers may be liable for additional costs incurred.

On all trips

In booking this trip you should be confident in your ability to participate in all activities described in these Trip Notes. If you have any doubt about your suitability you should call the Exodus office and ask to speak to one of the experts on this itinerary.

 

Every time that you travel abroad you should take the time to read the warnings in the essential information in the brochure.

Full joining instructions including local emergency numbers, and details of how to reach the start point, will be sent to you approximately 2 to 3 weeks prior to departure. If you do not receive these at least a week before departure, or require them earlier please contact our office or your travel agent.

The information in these Trip Notes is given in good faith. Where differences exist between the Trip Notes and our current brochure or website, the Trip Notes supersede the brochure and website. All holidays can be subject to unexpected changes; in order to enjoy them you should be prepared to be flexible where necessary. Occasionally, as stated in our brochure, it may not be possible to follow the itinerary as planned. This may be for a variety of reasons - climatic, political, physical or other. In these circumstances we will make the best possible alternative arrangements that maintain the integrity of the original itinerary.

As fuel prices, airport taxes and exchange rates fluctuate, and airlines manage their rates to match demand, it is proving harder than ever to guarantee our Flight Inclusive prices. Although we endeavour to keep our website as accurate as possible, daily fluctuations mean that our Flight Inclusive price may be out of date. For accurate prices we recommend that you contact one of our Travel Experts, or your Travel Agent.
