    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Selo Lukomir, Lukomir, Konjic 88400 Bosnia and Herzegovina

    When we leave our car at Umoljani village we will start our, firstly one way rouhgly 3-4 hour long hike, to reach Lukomir village. Trail will take us from starting point of roughly 1275 meters (Umoljani) to peak of Obalj at around 1896 meteres with more then 620 meters of altitude gain. All this heavy work will pay of once on top, as views of Studeni Potok along the way, Rakitnica Canyon and mountains of Treskavica, Visocica and ultimate peak of Bjelasnica mountain with numerous small villages in distance will be simply stunning. After some rest and full time body and spirit enjoyment we are ready to hike down to Lukomir village at altitude of 1500 which will be "one of a kind" story as well.

    Once there we go for a deserved resting time, having local coffee, and some food as well.Please note that depending on time of the year we can get lucky to have fields of bluberries, rose-hip, certain types of mushrooms, thyme or other plant species around us free to pick up.

    Lukomir is highest and most of the year inhabited (except in recent years, during heavy winter season when locals leave village until early spring) and most isolated nomad village in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    Duration: 4 hours

    Stop At: Selo Umoljani, Umoljani, Trnovo 71220 Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Pleasant 3 hours flat hike to Umoljani village through Canyong of Rakitnica river and amazing explorations of Peruce waterfall, Studeni Potok as one of the most beautiful valleys in whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina and story of "Umoljani Dragon". In the end of the day we ll do around 7-8 hours hike, which will surely be worth it all.

    Umoljani village is mostly known for few things: Stoned Dragon, Mosque and Sarajevo Haggadah and Studeni Potok (Cold Creek).

    Once we reach Umoljani again prepare yourself for truly amazing local lunch: Begova Corba (local stew), Krompiruša (potato made pie) or Sirnica (cheese made) and Burek (meat made), with again local yoghurt and salat. Nothing in the world beats this.
