What to Expect

Saturday: Hike to Bijele Vode Mountain Hut

Your host will collect you from Dubrovnik Airport at 11:00 and take you to Rujište, at the southern edge of Mt. Prenj (2-hour drive).

You’ll take a short and easy hike up to Bijele Vode mountain hut where dinner will be waiting for you to enjoy while you get to know your new hiking buddies.

Sunday: Summit the Twin Peaks

After breakfast, you’ll start your hike towards the highest peaks of Prenj; the route will take you through a valley logged between high rocky peaks.

Nearing the end of the day you will have your final ascent to the twin peaks, Zelena glava (2155m), and Otiš (2097m). From here you will have a 360-degree panorama of the peaks and valley of Prenj and Bosnia’s other major mountains.

You’ll then descend to your next mountain hut, arriving in time for dinner. In the evening there is a possibility to climb the small peak of Taraš, just for bonus points.

Monday: Summit Velika Kapa

After breakfast this morning, you’ll start your hike to the next hut, Vrutak. You’ll pass through endemic Bosnian fir forests, before getting to a pass with views of Tisovica valley.

After a short break at Vrutak hut, you’ll continue climbing towards Konjička Bjelašnica to reach Velika Kapa (2007m), a peak situated above the small town of Konjic.

After a picnic on the peak, you’ll start descending towards the northern edge of the mountain and towards your last hut stay at Rapta where dinner will be waiting.

Tuesday: Tour of Mostar

After breakfast in the hut, you’ll take a drive to Mostar for a walking tour of the capital of Herzegovina. The walking tour will take you around the UNESCO protected old town and to the rebuilt 16th-century Stari Most bridge.

From here, you’ll visit Blagaj with the largest natural spring in Europe, where you’ll enjoy local trout for lunch before departing for Dubrovnik Airport, arriving around 19:30 for your return journey home.

Note: This itinerary and the duration of the activities are subject to change due to group abilities and preferences, and weather conditions and forecasts.
