More Info

While the vast majority of Bosnia and Herzegovina is covered in mountains and forests, several places stand out as incredible snowshoeing destinations: Prenj Mountain and the Čvrsnica massif.

Both peaks sit in Herzegovina, in the southwest portion of the country, and offer ample opportunities for both single-day ascent and hut-to-hut wilderness odyssey. Both are also easily accessed from Mostar, Herzegovinian capital.

Prenj Mountain is composed of 11 peaks with an elevation of 2,000 meters (6,500 feet) or more. The highest of these is Zelena glava at 2,115 meters (6,938 feet). Starting from about 1,000 meters (3,280 feet), snowshoers can choose any number of the peaks to head up. Various mountain huts on the massif provide snowshoers with convenient places to stay when opting to head up more than one peak.

The Čvrsnica massif sits at the very northern border of Herzegovina in Blidinje Nature Park. The highest peak on the massif reaches 2,228 meters (7,309 feet) in elevation and boasts incredible panoramic views of the national park. The ascent takes 7 to 8 hours and the massif also boasts plenty of mountain huts to extend the trip over a few days.

 

 

 

Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

During the winter, average daily temperatures in Bosnia and Herzegovina hover just above freezing in the valleys and drop below freezing at higher elevations. Winter is also the wettest time of year, but the area still does not receive more than 180 millimeters (7 inches) of precipitation per month.

How to get there:

Any trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina begins with a flight into Sarajevo International Airport (SJJ). Most snowshoeing trips will either start from the capital or Mostar, which can be reached in a few hours by bus.
