Weave your way through the history and landscapes of Bosnia and Herzegovina
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.
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.
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.
