I will take you on this thrilling 2-day hike on Čvrsnica Mountain, a paradise for hikers and climbers in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where we’ll attempt the high peaks of Veliki Vilinac & Pločno!

Located in northern Herzegovina, Čvrsnica Mountain lies in the Dinaric extension of the Swiss Alps. It hides more than ten summits above 2000m. You will be captivated by the breathtaking views as we climb two high summits on this trip including Pločno (2228m), the highest peak in the region.

Along the way, we’ll spot clear-water lakes hidden in the mountain. The area is so serene and peaceful, you will feel connected to the elements of nature!

On the first day, we’ll meet in Mostar (or any other city which falls on the way to our destination, depending on agreement) and drive to our starting point in Blidinje Nature Park. This nature park is home to many endemic species and multiple sources of clean water. From there, we’ll start our hike to Veliki Vilinac Summit (2116m).

You will be stunned by the scenic beauty as we head towards a unique natural monument called Outlaws Gate (Hajdučka Vrata). This remarkable stone circle is formed over thousands of years and qualifies as an ideal place for those in search of peace and tranquility. We’ll stay overnight at Vilinac Hut, overlooking nearby mountains. This day entails 5-7h of climbing with 1000m assent.

On the next day, we’ll  attempt the majestic Pločno summit (2228m), commonly known as ‘Herzegovina’s roof top’. Hiking for about 6-7 hours, we’ll rise around 900m in altitude. You will be awe-struck by the breathtaking sight of the neighbouring peaks.

Later, we’ll head back to Blidinje Nature Park and enjoy tasty local cuisine at the national restaurant. After a satisfying lunch, we’ll drive back to Mostar, completing our memorable trip.

Request you to join me on this immensely rewarding hike, book your trip now! I will be waiting for your message. Also, if you are interested to take a walk through history in the same area, check out this intriguing day hike on King Karadjordjevic’s old Hunting Trail on Mount Čvrsnica.

About the Guide

 
 

Welcome to your Herzegovina Hiking Adventure. My name is Miroslav Mihalj, born in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. I am the current president of the Croatian Mountaineering Association “Prenj 1933 Mostar”, certified Mountain Guide and Rescuer and I offer hiking, snowshoeing and ski touring tours around this beautiful region.

As mountain hiker I am proud to have climbed some of the highest peaks in Europe and Balkans as well as local peaks in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which I have climbed numerous times both in winter and summer.

I enjoy nature, that feeling of freedom and serenity the mountains offer. They are a place to find yourself and push your boundaries. I’m lucky to have been born in a place surrounded by beautiful and intact mountain ranges hiding the most exciting nature my country has to offer.

Very much excited to meet you and share with you this truly wonderful world!

What People are Saying about Herzegovina Hiking Adventures

 

I cannot recommend Miroslav more highly. We had the best day hiking with him! He set a really nice pace, well suited to our level, was very thoughtful and attentive and showed us some amazing lookouts. He was extremely professional, helpful, kind and knowledgeable, not just about hiking but the area and Bosnian history. He went above and beyond to make the most of our day and took us to a beautiful river to go swimming with the locals after a hot day walking and then showed us a great local place for dinner. Having done a lot of hiking and climbing with lots of different guides, Miroslav is one of the best. He’s extremely experienced and a great person and guide. Was a great day walking and hanging out. Would have loved to stay and do more trips with him!
