Opted for the Sutjeska National Park hike (day trip from Sarajevo) based on great reviews and photos. It ended up being only two of us on the tour, as the other people who had booked cancelled at the last minute. I have a lot of respect for Green Visions who would have been well within their rights to cancel the trip as there was not sufficient numbers. Thankfully they didn't and we enjoyed the day trip from Sarajevo to experience this beautiful part of the country. Our guide Mustafa was brilliant, full of knowledge about the national park, the wildlife and the history of the country in general, and a good laugh. it is also clear that Green Visions are very safety conscious and keen to tailor their trips to the particular needs and interests of the customer. The hike itself started in a lofty position on the lower slopes of Maglic mountain with incredible views over the canyon and primeval forest below, before descending through woodland to the dramatic natural amphitheater of Trnovacko Lake. On the way back from the trail head we even saw a brown bear from the car, which rounded off a great day. Well worth the money as it would be very tricky to access this area independently. I hope to be back in the country to do some of the longer hikes in the area with green visions..
Thank you very much on your positive and very detailed feedback.
It is highly appreciated.
We try to keep our guests and people interested in our tours, aware that we run these weekly tours no matter the number of participants. In past we realized that it can be very disappointing for our guests cancelling a tour in last minute, from our side...
So we decided we won't do it anymore!
We try on every tour to give our guests best possible service and experience. I dare to say that we have the best guides in the business and Mustafa is for sure one of the best.
I know only few people being lucky enough to see a bear in our woods.
So you had a real privilege, since they mostly avoid any contact with humans.
Hope you will decide to come back and give us a chance to share some more of hidden corners of Bosnian Highlands.
All the best dear friends.
