Highlights

 
  • Hike down King Karadjordjevic’s old hunting trail

  • Enjoy Bosnian coffee or tea in the mountains

  • Trek through a colorful beech forest

 

I will take you on day hike (4-5 hours) down the “King’s Hunting Trail” in the peaceful forest of the Čvrsnica mountains, up to Zljeb and Tise. Imagine taking a walk through history as you travel along King Karadjordjevic’s old hunting trails in the wilderness.

Located in northern Herzegovina, the Čvrsnica mountains are part of the Dinaric Alps. Surrounded by the Neretva River on the east and the Doljanka River in the south, this area is rich in biodiversity and is home to numerous endemic species like the Munika Pine.

This fertile region has many picture-perfect green valleys and beautiful hidden lakes like Blidinje, Crepulja and Crvenjak.  Pločno (2228m), the highest peak in the area, is also known as “Herzegovina’s roof top”. The Čvrsnica mountains are an ideal place to enjoy some peace and quiet where the only sounds you’ll hear are the wind, the hustling of leaves and your own heartbeat.

On this hike, we’ll walk from the green Diva Grabovica valley through a vibrant beech forest. After a steady uphill climb of about 2.5 hours, we will have reached our destination, which overlooks the largest rock face on the Balkan Peninsula. After marveling at this massive 1,000m rock face for a while, we’ll head back down the way we came.

There are multiple natural springs with water so fresh and clear that we can refill our bottles on the trail! Don’t forget to bring your camera along as well as you’ll want to capture the breathtaking views and perhaps snap a selfie or two along the way.

We’ll depart from your accommodation in Mostar at 8:00AM and return around 5:00PM. Round trip transportation from Mostar to the trailhead is included.

Come and join me on this memorable hike through the stimulating forests of the Cvrsnica mountains. Book your trip now!

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!
