Highlights

 
  • Explore a forest of endemic Munika Pine trees

  • See abandoned huts that are being reclaimed by nature

  • Marvel at Outlaw's Gate and the amazing views of mountain scenery

 

Čvrsnica Mountain lies in northern Herzegovina and forms part of the Dinaric Alps. Its highest peak is the highest mountain peak in the whole Herzegovina region at 2,228 meters. It is the beautiful setting of this day hike, and the main attraction is the amazing Outlaw’s Gate natural monument.

We’ll begin the hike walking through the mountain’s endemic Munika Pine forests, passing pretty valleys and abandoned huts that once belonged to cattle breeders but are now being returned to nature. We’ll also pass by Lake Crvenjak before arriving at Outlaw’s Gate, which has been protected as a national monument since 1985.

After soaking in the beauty of the monument and peacefulness of the mountain, it’s time to head back. Our last stop on the way will be the Vilinac hut, a lookout spot where you can again admire the nearby mountaintops and river canyons.

Book now to complete a challenging hike in a place of great beauty and serenity, and pay a visit to a unique natural monument.

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!
