We had a fantastic couple of days hiking and rafting.the facilities were excellent - the campsite was small and very friendly. Benjamin our guide was lovely and provided loads of extra info. The company were really quick to respond and very clear in their emails. We loved our trip and would highly recommend green visions.

Thank you so much for an amazing review.

Sutjeska National Park with Tara river is an amazing "playground" for outdoor activities.
We know that Benjamin knows how to make every experience as a unique one and we're so glad you enjoyed it.

Greetings from Sarajevo.

Green Visions did a fabulous job in planning a 4 day hiking and rafting getaway for our family.

Sutjeska national park is just an amazing place to visit and the guides, Brando and Laurence, really did a fabulous job in making sure the hikes were well paced for s family with kids, filling all of our heads full of local cultural and ecological knowledge and keeping it all safe

Accomodations are a little basic :) particularly the rafting camp that takes "shared facilities" to a level we were not fully prepared for ..... but all utterly worth it !

Thank you for your review.

We're so glad you enjoyed the tour with Branko and Lorenc, who definitely know how to make a tour "a special" and interesting experience.
We're aware that some facilities in more remote parts of the country, are occasionally not the highest standard. Still, that is a part of the experience.

As long you're aware of this, it won't be a disappointment.
Thank you once again and greetings from all Green Visions Team.

I arranged a 3 day hiking trip to Sutjeska NP for myself and a couple of friends through Samer at Green Visions. His organisation and enthusiasm were excellent, the mountains are stunning but very much unvisited - certainly compared to other parts of Europe.

Samer lived through the Sarajevo siege in the 90's so aside from the hiking it was fascinating speaking to him about his experiences of this time.

Hello Chris.
Thank you for your time to write a review here and giving us a chance to share some of the Bosnian Highlands with you.

Sutjeska National Park is one of the gems of Bosnia and Western Balkans in general. In terms of hiking this area has so much to offer and who ever visited any part of Dinaric Alps is aware of it.

I really enjoyed the hikes with you guys and hope to see you back in the future.
All the best.

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.
