Uncover the true Bosnia as you climb the highest peak in the country – the 2386 metre summit of Maglić Mountain

Hike through the dramatic Sutjeska National Park – a vast 43,000 acre area of protected wilderness

Wander the Perućica, one of the last primeval forests left in Europe – estimated to be 20,000 years old and completely impenetrable in parts

Key Information

Day 1

Trebinje City

Driving

3hrs

Meet your guide and team en route to the 18th century city of Trebinje, where you'll stop for lunch in a local restaurant. Visit the Tvrdos Monastery and taste some of their famous wine. Check into your hotel in the village of Tjentiste and discuss plans for the coming days over dinner.

Day 2

Maglić Peak

Hiking

8-10hrs · 16km · 718m up · 718m down

The views over the magnificent Perućica rainforest accompany you along the way and slowly and carefully you'll make it to the peak across a rocky and barren final section. When reaching the rocky summit, take some time to absorb the achievement and the incredible views over a packed lunch, before slowly descending to Tjentiste where dinner and a good night’s rest await.

A great trip - Hamza the guide is excellent and I lucked out with a lovely small group of fellow travellers. Bosnia is so beautiful. Definitely recommend but be prepared it is non stop with a lot of driving time!

Roma(August 2023)

A very well organised trip; great food, lodging and transport! Unfortunately, due to bad weather we were not able to climb Maglic, but our host provided an alternative hiking opportunity to a beautiful lake in the National Park. Our group was fantastic, so in spite of the rain we managed to keep our spirits high! On the whole, I would recommend travelling with MBA!

Great opportunity to hike in bosnia and montenegro. Fantastic local guide, really well organised. The lunch and wine tasting on the Friday was fab as was the restaurant on the Saturday night. The accommodation is decent and has everything you need.

This was my second MBA trip, I had a brilliant time. The only disappointing part was that due to a thunderstorm, we weren’t able to summit the mountain (better to be safe than sorry!). However, the lovely guide Hamza has offered a personal tour anytime we like to make up for it. He was great as was his partner. They were super nice guys, organised and very knowledgeable (thanks for everything - see you in Sarajevo or London 😄). The bus journeys were smooth, the restaurant en route to the hotel was 5-star (very nice!) and the monastery/wine tasting was a delight. The hotel we stayed in was nice enough, the guy who runs it is great. I enjoyed a nice dip in the outdoor pool! And my fellow hikers, well they were all brilliant. I loved the stories and the jokes we shared ❤️ We had a long wait for our return flight so we took a taxi to Dubrovnik old town. A lovely end to the trip. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to experience Bosnia & Herzegovina

Caitlin(June 2023)

The trip was amazing, I highly recommend getting the transport and visiting the monastery. Lunch there was in a amazing restaurant overlooking the town. The guide was fantastic. Sadly, we were not abe to summit due to bad weather but our guide was amazing and took us hiking a different route and it was stunningly beautiful. Just make sure you pack for all weather's because it is so variable. Some weather forecasts said it was going to be sunny but the mountains had a mind of their own!

The trek was incredibly STUNNING. Think trekking up streams, mossy rocks and untouched nature. The scale of the National park is beyond comprehension and very untouched. I loved that it was not touristy at all and very much off the beaten track. It was my first hike - ever! And I found some parts very steep for my beginner level but with the guide Hamza was very caring and with his help I managed by using breathwork. We had a great Bosnian coffee by the lake and even though we couldn't summit because of bad weather I don't regret going at all ❤️ The best way to describe the Sujestka National park is Jurassic Park (sans dinosaurs).

Fantastic trip to a beautiful part of the world. Really enjoyed this adventure with a great bunch of people. The local guide was fantastic and really made it a great experience. Unfortunately due to bad weather conditions we couldn’t summit the mountain but we got as far up as was safe on the day. Climb was challenging in parts but very manageable. Accommodation was perfect, had everything needed. Local food was good and no additional costs encountered unless you wanted to buy some drinks. Would definitely recommend to someone that enjoys hiking and we will be looking to book another adventure again soon !

Excellent little 3-day trip. As long as you have a reasonable fitness level you'll do the climb no problem. Great guides and super-well organized. The food was amazing too! In all, the trip was excellent value for money!

Freya(October 2022)

Insanely beautiful and fun hike, great way to get an action packed holiday with like minded people, somewhere you otherwise wouldn't think of going. Highly recommend.

Gavin(October 2022)

This tour had it all, a great mixture of terrain, from steep climbs to forest paths, wide expenses and a beautiful lake. It's a bit technical at times but on the easier spectrum of challenging so good for those wanting to move up from moderate. Great accommodation and friendly guides. Definitely worth the trip!
