Travellers who start in Split or Dubrovnik will meet up at the Kravica Waterfalls. We then move onto Mostar and its stunning Turkish Old Town. Between Mostar and Sarajevo there is the opportunity to go rafting on the famous Neretva River.

 

Sarajevo is a multi-ethnic, melting pot of a city full of surprises and great nightlife. We also visit the famous War Tunnel Museum and explore one of the Olympic mountains of Bosnia-Herzegovina that features Lukomir, an unspoilt highland village. After 7 days of adventure and diverse highlights, the tour finishes with the crown jewel of Herzegovina: Blagaj, and wine-tasting in Trebinje, back near the Croatian border.

Day 1

Split or Dubrovnik to Kravica Waterfalls and Mostar

You can depart from either Split (free transfer) or Dubrovnik (£30 supplement) – please let us know your preference. From Split we provide you with a bus transfer at 9.30am from the main bus station to Capljina (just over the Bosnian border), where our guide will meet you with the tour vehicle). From Dubrovnik you are transferred to the border at 10.30am to meet the guide and tour vehicle. Everyone then continues as one group with the guide to the first amazing destination: Kravica Waterfalls (entrance included).

The most striking feature of Kravica Waterfalls is not only the sheer breadth and number of cascades, but the opportunity to swim in and jump around the pools – it is literally a natural water-fun park! You can also grab a light lunch here – there are small cafes here serving simple dishes.

We reach Mostar in the late afternoon, with time to check in to our accommodation and have a quick orientation walk with your tour leader. We then have the evening free to enjoy dinner, the nightlife and be blown away by how this beautiful city looks at night. Overnight Mostar.

Day 2

Mostar - WHOLE DAY

After breakfast, you have a choice of either exploring the city on your own (your tour leader can recommend the main museums and attractions to visit) or choose to do the Mostar Walking Tour (16 Euros). This tour starts at 10am and is 2 hrs long. It includes a local, English-speaking guide and covers the Old City areas. After the tour, there are many highlights to explore on your own, such as the Old bridge museum, where you can choose to actually get inside the famous bridge.

See full details on the excursions page.
Overnight Mostar.

Day 3

Mostar to Konjic to Sarajevo

We leave Mostar early this morning to reach Konjic about an hour later as there are different options for adventure in this region:

Rafting on the famous Neretva River (40 Euros): Konjic is famous for Rafting and the Neretva is a breath-taking river to do it on. The rafting experience (including BBQ stop!) lasts about 3.5 hrs and is lower intermediate-level, perfect for both first-timers and those who have rafted before.

OR

Plunge pool hike (FREE): A short hike up to a natural beauty spot that features a plunge pool. Jump in if you fancy it - the water's so inviting!

See full details on the excursions page. Please note that only one excursion can be chosen on this day as they run at the same time.

After our Konjic adventures, we arrive in Sarajevo in the evening, which gives us enough time to check in, grab some dinner and then (if you have enough energy), go out to experience some Sarajevan nightlife!

Overnight Sarajevo.

Day 4

Sarajevo - WHOLE DAY

Breakfast is served from 8.30am and then the rest of the day is free to explore Sarajevo City as we wish. It is the tour leader’s day off but he can give us plenty of tips and a map for the day as there is so much to see in Sarajevo! Highlights include the Turkish Quarter, the bazaars, eternal flame, the Sebilj fountain, the brewery bar etc.

2 optional excursions that can BOTH be done on the day: (1) There is the option of getting a fascinating, in-depth walking tour of this incredible city with a local guide. Leaves at 10am and lasts about 2.5 hrs (12 Eur per person).

(2) Bosnian Cooking Class (35 Euros): HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This excursion starts with pick-up around 1pm from Sarajevo and continues until 6pm (sometimes longer!). This experience is consistently rated as the ultimate experience on the tour. Bosnian cuisine is tasty, filling and fun to make! Create local specialities such as japrak, dolma and 2 kinds of pastry pies (cheese and potato). Then get stuck in and eat your mouth-watering creations! Also includes salad, home-made organic wine, juice and mezze. See full details on the excursions page.

Overnight Sarajevo.

Day 5

Sarajevo Tunnel and Bjelasnica Mountain

So far, we have travelled from Croatia’s Mediterranean coast, to the rivers and lakes of Herzegovina, and finished in Sarajevo city. Today we head for Bosnia’s mountains!

After breakfast we head for Sarajevo’s most famous attraction – the War Tunnel, which is close to the main airport. Your tour leader will run through how important this tunnel and its museum was to the survival of Sarajevo. During our visit we will get a chance to see footage from the conflict, see the ration packs used by those enduring the siege and pass through the last remaining section of the tunnel that was dug in secret under the airport.

We then leave for Bjelasnica mountain to visit Lukomir, which is truly one of the “frozen in time” experiences that touches visitors to this magical country. We have a light hike (15 to 20 mins) around the village and a nearby peak before returning to our mountain hotel accommodation.

Overnight on the mountain.
Bjelasnica and Lukomir
 
Day 6

Blagaj and Trebinje

In the morning, we depart the mountain and drive back towards Herzegovina, stopping in breathtaking Blagaj, home to a Dervish monastery next to the source of a river that literally bursts from the base of a mountain. The setting is so stunning, you won't believe it's real! We are proud to include this highlight that most Bosnia tours miss out.

Blagaj is one of the best places in Herzegovina to grab lunch as the location is so spectacular. We then head for Trebinje for a stop near the town that everyone seems to love: wine-tasting! This tasting session is included and we arriving in Trebinje town in the late afternoon, having had our eyes and taste-buds spoilt all day.

Overnight Trebinje.
Sarajevo Tunnel and Zabljak Zipline
 
Day 7

Trebinje

After breakfast, the tour officially finishes. But your adventure does not need to stop here!

Trebinje is well-connected by bus to Dubrovnik (less than 1 hour away), Kotor and Budva (Montenegro), Tivat (for Montenegro's main coastal airport), Belgrade (Serbia) and beyond.

Q: Why does the tour start in Croatia and not in Bosnia itself?
A: Most of our travellers (90%) join this tour straight after a Croatia Sailing tour with one of those providers such as Busabout, Sail Croatia, Top Deck, Katarina Line and Contiki. As most of these 7-day boat tours finish on a Saturday in Split or Dubrovnik, then it makes sense for the tour to start at a convenient location for our travellers. However, you can certainly join the tour in Mostar if that is more convenient with you.
Q: What time does the tour depart from Split and Dubrovnik?
A: The tour vehicle departs at 10am every Saturday.
Q: Is the tour fully led all the way through?
A: Yes, you will have a Bosnian/English-speaking tour leader to take you through from Croatia to Herzegovina to Bosnia to Montenegro. He will have a day off on the Tuesday, but you can book a separate tour guide for that day. By law, he can orientate you around every destination, but is not allowed to give you an in-depth guided walk around Mostar either, but there is also the option of a walking tour of the old city there.
Q: I am a solo traveller or in a couple - if I don't want to share a dorm, can I pay a double/single supplement?
A: Yes, you can pay a double or single supplement - please email us for prices. You must also book your single cabin and rooms in advance.
Q: What food is included?
A: Breakfasts are included every morning.
Q: What if I am vegetarian or have other special dietary requirements, how can you help me?
A: You should tell us about your special dietary requirements before your tour starts and we can ensure that the breakfasts are more suited to your requirements.
Q:Can I leave the tour in Sarajevo?
A: Yes, you can. The price would then be £399 GBP.
Q:Can I join the tour in Mostar?
A: Yes, you can. The price would remain the same and you can meet the group at the accommodation in Mostar in the late afternoon. However, you would miss the Kravica Waterfalls part of the tour.
Q: Do I have to have any insurance?
A: We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance before you go.
Q: Are there towels provided?
A: You will not be provided with bathroom towels at the accommodation. However, you should definitely bring your own beach towel for swim stops at places such as Kravica Waterfalls.
