Nature, history and culture collide across Bosnia and Herzegovina on this round-trip 8-day expedition 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 white-water rafting down a turquoise river and get a taste of the Balkans’ special brand of perseverance and hospitality.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Ease into your adventure with a meal hosted by locals Mustafa and Mersiha in their kitchen overlooking the city of Sarajevo.
  • Paddle hard on a white-water rafting trip down the Neretva River, through canyons and past waterfalls.
  • Go off-road in search of wild horses in the foothills of Mount Cincar – our expert local leaders and guides know all the best spots to look.
  • Explore the historic and off-the-beaten-path town of Jajce, the birthplace of Yugoslavia and home to centuries-old architecture and a fairytale waterfall.
  • Step inside Josip Tito’s bunker – a massive and impeccably preserved underground nuclear shelter from the Yugoslav era that just recently opened to visitors.
  • Meet Sarajevo’s only female coppersmith while wandering the cobblestone walkways of the city’s historic cultural centre.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This is an expedition trip and is new to our range this year. Despite rigorous planning and research, new itineraries can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a welcome surprise, but every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
  • This itinerary requires a reasonable level of fitness.
  • We occasionally use public transport on this trip, providing for a truly authentic travel experience. You will need to manage your own luggage on and off vehicles, so we recommend that you pack light.
  • Most of the accommodation on this trip is in hotels, however, we also spend two nights at a countryside guesthouse where accommodation is provided in comfortable triple or quad multi-share rooms. Many travellers find this experience offers a rewarding, authentic slice of rural hospitality.

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.
