When is the best time to visit?
May through early September is the ideal time to visit Bosnia and Herzegovina because the heat isn’t too intense for outdoor exploration. A trip during February and March will also allow visitors to take advantage of winter sports and longer daylight hours than mid-winter.
Where to go in Bosnia and Herzegovina?
Discover the impressive waterfalls of Jajce, sample Herzegovinian wines and learn about the region’s diversity of religions at the Serbian Orthodox monastery of Tvrdoš, visit the tourist oriented but charming city of Baščaršija, play in the outdoor recreation oriented Vrbas Canyons, and see the world famous Stari Most, an old bridge built in the 1500’s.
How many days do I need?
Budget anywhere from 5-10 days to experience Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Discover Bosnia and Herzegovina, a unique crossroad of ancient civilizations with a mixture of both Western and Eastern influences. Start your trip in the capital of Sarajevo, with a guided walking tour of its historic center, followed by a hike to the Highland Villages in the Bjelašnica Mountains, including Gradina and Umoljani with views of the Rakitnica Canyon. End your tour in the 15th-century city of Mostar and the neighboring settlement of Blagaj, where you'll enjoy exploring Buna Spring and its neighboring Ottoman house and monastery.
Often called the "Yosemite of Southeastern Europe" for its dense forests and rugged mountains, Sutjeska National Park's natural and historical significance has made it one of Bosnia's most iconic destinations. Explore the park and revel in its majestic landscapes on this day-long tour that suits hikers of all levels.
Pedal your way through the Dinaric Alps - the natural border between the cute coastal towns of the Adriatic and the highland trading cities along the Ottoman caravan routes to Istanbul. Expect challenging rides, off-the-beaten-track gems, and plenty of gorgeous photo ops along the way.
This week-long tour of Bosnia and Herzegovina's capital highlights the city's rich history, diverse culture, and delicious regional food in addition to curated winter activities like snowshoeing and skiing. You'll sip on aromatic Bosnian coffee, participate in a cooking class, sample regional beers, and learn to work with copper from a local artisan. Enjoy the perfect balance of active adventure, guided tours, and free time to explore Sarajevo at your own pace.
Walk into the past and experience a day in the life of a Bosnian villager. This one-day trip offers unique insights on the rhythms of daily pastoral life in one of the country's most historic and isolated regions.
