Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country known for its natural beauty. Especially when it comes to mountains these regions are rich with forests, resorts and opportunities to discover real gems. I could write many posts on this subject and would probably come up with new mountains to show you each time, but as it is I want to concentrate on the most popular ones as well as those who bring in the most visitors. I have written before about the Top 10 Places you must visit in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and have mentioned mountains there, but in this post I want to go a bit further.
Some of these places have extended posts on this blog which tell you more if you are interested, and I have provided those links where appropriate.
So here are my choices for 5 Mountains in Bosnia and Herzegovina You Have to Explore
Jahorina Olympic Ski Resort is the biggest and most popular ski-resort in Bosnia and Herzegovina and offers a variety of outdoor sports and activities all of which are listed on the website (in English as well). Beware to ski only on marked courses here.
official webpage for more info on events. If you are more into exploring nature and history, try visiting the old village Lukomir (image above this text), but take not that the roads are only open in late spring, summer and early autumn. The village is situated in the municipality of Konjic and is the highest altitude and most remote village in the entire country. The homes in the area are made of stone while their roofs are composed of wooden tiles.
hike into the valley, or drive into the village Zijemlje for some authentic countryside charm. All within 30 minutes from Mostar. A really great, mostly unexplored spot by tourists.
The Prenj mountain is not a specific place, but rather a mountain range with various destinations to be discovered. The best ones are Boracko Lake, which I have shown you before on this blog, is snuggled in between Prenj, Bjelasnica and Visocica mountains. The lake is open to the public for camping, swimming and BBQs. The best spot is across the lake by the restaurant where you will find a great freshwater stream and plenty of shade. Entry to the lake costs 2 KM (1.14 $) which you only have to pay during the summer season. Another great visitors spot it Glavaticevo. The picture above shows a hike to the spring of the river Sanica, but I guess that's one of those hidden places not shown in any guide books.
I hope you enjoyed this mountain tour of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
