From ski touring in the beautiful Bjelasnica Mountains to mountain biking through the canyons and valleys of the Bosnian Highlands, there is plenty to experience in this incredible country.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is a former Yugoslav Republic that gained its independence after a bloody and acrimonious civil war. Evidence of the war may be seen everywhere you go in the country, but the spirit and resilience of its people are as strong as ever.
From the massive mountains towering over Sarajevo to the rugged shoreline of the Adriatic Sea, Bosnia and Herzegovina is an outdoor adventurer’s paradise waiting to be discovered. You could spend years exploring every corner of this small but diverse country. However, two weeks in more realistic and still an adequate amount of time to discover some of what this beautiful place has to offer.
If you have the time, head down to Mostar, the capital of Herzegovina. Located in a little valley, the city offers great insight into the country’s complex history as well as close proximity to Blidinje Nature Park and Mt Čvrsnica.
During the summer, temperatures range from the low to high 20s depending on where you are in the county. Rain is infrequent during the summer. During the winter, temperatures range around freezing, but get colder in the highlands. Snow is quite frequent as winter is the wettest season in the country.
Flying into Sarajevo International Airport (SJJ) is the best way to get to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The airport has connections from Munich, Istanbul and Athens.
