From Sarajevo: Full-Day Lukomir Village Private Tour

1. From Sarajevo: Full-Day Lukomir Village Private Tour

Lukomir is located just 42 kilometers away from Sarajevo and represents the highest settled village in Bosnia and Herzegovina and one of the main Bosnian tourist attractions. The stone houses with wooden roofs and women still wearing traditional clothes are main characteristics of local life from April until December when the village is reachable. Settled at the height of 1,495 meters on the top of Bjelasnica Mountain, Lukomir has stayed out of human touch and represents the most traditional nomadic lifestyle. Indeed, access to the village is impossible from the first snows in December until late April and sometimes even later, except by skis or on foot. Lukomir is known for its traditional attire and the women still wear the hand-knitted costumes that have been worn for centuries. Domestic food such as pie, domestic donuts, traditional Bosnian coffee and admirable sightseeing are definitely the kind of experience you do not want to miss. Let’s make one more experience together. From there, you can do some magnificent hiking in the area along the ridge of the Rakitnica Canyon, which drops 800 meters down below.

Sarajevo: City Highlights Urban Hike

5. Sarajevo: City Highlights Urban Hike

Let’s start our hike at the cathedral in the city center – the typical meet-up spot for locals. Before we leave for the Mahalas, we can tell you the first exciting facts about this city, the Jerusalem of the Balkans. These typical Sarajevo neighbourhoods, with their residential buildings clinging to the surrounding mountains and telling exciting stories of multiculturalism, diversity, and solidarity! So our urban hike takes us through these neighbourhoods, to the outskirts, where people grow their herbs and vegetables in their own vegetable gardens, and up to Café 105, a place very important to Sarajevo’s history. There, we enjoy a traditional Bosnian beverage, share our impressions of the first part of our hike, and take photos. Because the view of Sarajevo from up there is unrivalled! We resume our descent, but not before stopping for a few more great views of Sarajevo and the surrounding villages – and who knows, maybe we’ll even see a few sheep or goats on the way back? We finish our hike at the Mahala Sedrenik with a traditional Bosnian meal and rakija tasting – if you want! The lunch is optional. Afterwards, a taxi will take you back to your accommodation or you can hike back down to the cathedral with your guide.
