Join me on this tour in the mountainous Blidinje Nature Park and discover several historically and culturally significant sites along with the beautiful landscapes.

We’ll begin by walking through a fragrant forest, followed by a visit to rural households where you can try several regional domestic products. Then we’ll pay a visit to St. Ivan’s Church, which sits in a lush green area below the mountains. We’ll pass the grave of Diva Grabovčeva, a young girl who suffered in the 1600’s during the Ottoman Empire’s rule and whose memorial symbolizes the local people’s fight for freedom.

Our last stop will be to one of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s main historic sites, decorated headstones from the 12th to 14th century known as the Necropolis of Storks.

To finish off this fascinating and enriching tour, you’ll be invited to taste a dish that the people of this area have been preparing for centuries.

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!
