Introducing Bosnia and Herzegovina

Eastern and Western cultures collide with breathtaking natural beauty in this blend of a nation that boasts interesting architecture, craggy mountains and warm interactions with travelers.  

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.

Traveler: Doron E. - Local specialist: Samer Hajric

The only thing we didn't like about our trip was that it was over.
Stunnigly beautiful mountains and villages, fresh water, cozy cabins and delicious food.
Our guide Samer was not only a true professional but also a wonderful person we really enjoyed spending time with. Highly recommended and we look forward to coming back.

Hello Doron,
Thank you very much for great words.

I truly enjoyed the tour we did, from many different reasons, my first hiking tour of the season, weather and most of all the company.

Have a great time in Mostar and hope our paths will cross again.
All the best.
