  • Walk along the pristine Bijela River

  • Explore the Bijela Cave


Just 20 km from Mostar lies the hidden canyon of the Bijela River, a place with many wonders which few tourists ever visit. Join me on this day hike to discover this special site.

We’ll start the hike walking along the pristine river until coming upon some abandoned villages. The former inhabitants left 70 years ago, and now nature has reclaimed the uninhabited houses.

Next comes the main attraction: the gorgeous Bijela Cave, which features unique rock formations and a waterfall. After taking in the beauty of the cave, we’ll start making our way back and pass a lookout where you can enjoy stunning views of the river canyon.

This non-strenuous trek takes 4-5 hours to complete.

Book now and don’t miss this exciting, off-the-beaten-track excursion!

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!
