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.

Until than,
All the best dear friends.

We went on a 1 day hike in the Sutjeska National Park with Green Visions and it was a great trip. The scenery and views on the hike were amazing, as was the lake that was the end destination. You could even swim in it if you wished. A delicious lunch was also provided. It was a fairly long drive there and back but the vans are clean and comfortable and it is a nice scenic drive. Overall would definitely recommend.

I attended Green Vision´s day trip to Lukomir in Bjelasnica mountains. It is a great experience if you are interested in nature and history. The 1,5 hour drive to Lukomir was full of great impressions of the beautiful nature around Sarajevo, such as Bjelasnica and (from far) Treskavica mountains. During the drive, our guide Bakir told us many interesting things about nature, culture and history. After arriving in Lukomir, we started walking along Rakitnica canyon. We then had a picnic lunch at a viewpoint with great sight to the canyon and Visovica mountains. After walking we had free time to explore village Lukomir on our own. I would recommend this day trip to all travellers interested in nature and Bosnian history. (Green Visions also offers other day trips, to Sutjeska National Park for example, as well as multi-day tours and private tours.

Thank you for your words and praises about our work.

Many people miss out on the full Sarajevo experience, when not venturing out to one of the many mountains a stone's throw away from the Old town. I'm happy to hear you had a fun trip to Lukomir highland village and thank you for the review.

Greetings from your Green Visions friends!

A group of friends hired a guide to take us into the Bosnian mountains for three days of hiking. It was excellent- our guide, Samer, was knowledgeable, well-organised, a delight to be with. He planned an excellent schedule, drove us around, and the led the walks very well.

Thank you for your visit and review here at TripAdvisor.

Time spent in mountains is precious.
For me having a chance to be there so often and to share something I deeply enjoy with our guests is a real blessing.

Bosnian mountains and the whole Via Dinarica long distance trail is tremendous playground for nature lovers. So hope I will see you back in Bosnia again.

Enjoy the life and until some other opportunity, All the best.
Greetings from Sarajevo.

Absolutely fabulous. Definitely worth the money. Easy pick up in the morning from Sarajevo. Our guide Mustafa was one of the best I've ever had. Super friendly, very safe driver, and very knowledgeable about the country history and also the nature. I really cannot undervalue this trip. The landscape was gorgeous. Even went for a swim in the lake at lunch time. Packed lunch provided by Mustafa was perfect. All in all this was a day's trip that will stay with me forever as one of my best days in Bosnia. Thank you.

We loved showing you the highland villages and mountains. I am happy that you got along with Mustafa, one of people who is for the longest time of period with us and that he was able to show you Sutjeska Park and Trnovacko lake with his unique passion and flair.

Thank you for coming along our trip and have a great rest of the year with many more adventures.

Cheers.
