About
Lukomir is the highest and most isolated village in Bosnia. This hike is also the most popular hike in the country. And for a good reason. It offers all: amazing views, long walks, culture, history and legends. This is the most popular one day trip from Sarajevo. We start our tour on the southern slopes of Bjelašnica mountain, from medieval Umoljani village. We will make a short stop on ancient necropolis at Dolovi, and then continue towards Umoljani. We will then pass through Gradina - highland summer village, and go to Studeni Potok stream. On the way, we will visit 40-meter Peruće Waterfall before continuing to Lukomir. Our last stop - Lukomir village. It lives the same life for more than 600 years, Bosnia’s highest and most isolated mountain village. On the edge of the village you will be treated to a breathtaking view of Rakitnica Canyon. We will have traditional homemade lunch prepared by our hosts. You will also have the opportunity to purchase local handcrafts

Incredible guide. Gorgeous hike. Life-changing experience.
Aug. 2021
Without a doubt, the highlight of my time in Bosnia. The hike itself is gorgeous, with varying scenery to keep things exciting. But beyond the obviously great hike and the incredible stories you learn, the tour guide offers so much more. He has a deep knowledge of Bosnia, a wonderful gift of storytelling, a genuine commitment to Lukomir village's people, and a gentle but inspiring respect for the mountain and its fauna. The mountain is his natural habitat, and everything he did or said reflected his awe for the majestic mountains of Bosnia.

I don't know how, but he managed to balance his encyclopedic knowledge of history/plants/geography with witty humor and signature Bosnian hospitality (ask him about the magic box). For those wondering more about the logistics of the hike, he was very professional, punctual, considerate, and personable.

I am definitely coming back to Bosnia, and I attribute most of my decision to Highlander Adventure. Thank you for allowing me to experience the country through your eyes, experiences, and stories.

I had an amazing experience with Highlander Adventures! The hike itself was gorgeous, but our guide was also incredibly knowledgeable, not to mention personable, funny, and well-connected to the community. I only had 4-5 days in Sarajevo this time around, but this tour made me want to start planning another trip back to Bosnia!

Our guides were professional, friendly, historically knowledgeable, helpful, and generally contributed to an amazing day. The hike wouldn't be the same without them. I strongly recommend booking through highlander, whether as a large group or solo. Lukomir itself is a hidden gem!

Incredible hiking experience!
Jul. 2021 • Friends
For a first guided hiking experience I really enjoyed it on so many levels. Kenan was an amazing guide, he wasn't just spilling information there, we would stop and he would tell us passionately stories and facts about the place or even plants that we would find on the way. He would ask us questions and challenge us to make the hike more interactive and us more closely involved in the experience. He's professional and he puts the safety of everybody first. My favourite part was when we were on the top of the mountain at sunset and he told us the story of the village of Lukomir. I would definitely do it again as soon as I am back. If you are ever there, I recommend you to try it! Don't miss it!
