ITINERARY

Day 1

Split or Dubrovnik to Kravica Waterfalls and Mostar

Kravica waterfalls in Bosnia

You can depart from either Split (free transfer) or Dubrovnik (€35 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 10.30 am 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

Old bridge in Mostar by night

After breakfast, we are leaving Mostar and taking a short drive to breathtaking Blagaj, home to a Dervish Old 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.

After Blagaj visit we are driving back to Mostar where 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 €).  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

rafting in bosnia

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! 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

Sarajevo old town by night

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 (45 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 of Hope

Tunnel of Hope tour

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.

After the War Tunnel, the tour vehicle can drop you at either the airport or back in Sarajevo (at around midday). From Sarajevo, there are good connections to Serbia, Germany, Austria, Germany, Croatia and beyond. Wherever you are heading onto, we are sure your travels through Bosnia-Herzegovina will live long in the memory!
