Nature, history and culture collide across Bosnia and Herzegovina on this round-trip eight-day exploration from Sarajevo. Though so recently touched by upheaval, the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina are eager to share their history and customs with you – through good food, gripping stories and thrilling adventures. Spot wild horses in the mountains, step inside a preserved bunker that remained a national secret for decades, go hiking in the mountains and get a taste of the Balkans’ special brand of perseverance and hospitality.

I implore you to consider Bosnia & Herzegovina it is a destination of such diversity in food, culture, history and wilderness. One of the highlights of this trip included a traditional Bosnian dinner with a delightful couple who were generous with their time, food and experiences - a great ice breaker on your first night together as a group. However, finding wild horses in the mountains and getting to see them interacting with each other was super special. I learnt so much about the history of Bosnia & Herzegovina and the wider political landscape that contributed to where it is today. Hearing first hand accounts of the recent war was a humbling and unique experience. Our guide Ivan was fabulous he made everything seamless and did so with such humour. This trip is full of stunning landscapes, history, tasty delights and incredibly strong coffee. I have recommended it to any one that asks how my trip to Bosnia & Herzegovina was.

This was a wonderful trip! I highly recommended Bosnia. It is such an interesting country that deserves to be better explored. The waterfalls and mountains are stunning. I especially loved the wild horses and the days in Mostar. Sarajevo is such a great city too. This trip had loads of interactions with local people, and lots of great food too! Tito's bunker was epic. The group were so lovely, and our guide Petar was exceptional. He was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable and keen that we understood Bosnia and the wider region properly. I recommend adding a day in Sarejevo before/after and do the Siege of Sarajevo tour with Meet Bosnia.

A brilliant tour of Bosnia/Herzegovina with a great mix of activities from white water rafter to cooking demonstrations to history and culture. Pavle was a brilliant leader who was great fun, whilst keeping us all on track. Highly recommend both Intrepid and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
