    Just when it seemed impossible to find untrammeled biking track in Europe we’re here to remind you that optimism pays off. The ancient highland caravan routes that linked mountain towns for centuries now make for a heavenly biking track system and here is your dream trip to get you going. Our Mountain Biking in Bosnia trip will be an adventure you’ll never forget.

    Day 1:

    Morning starts with city bike ride through Sarajevo toward direction of Igman Olympic mountain. With gradual ascent by main Igman road, views around us will slowly start to open. The ride will be 4-5 hours in length with drive mostly on tarmac road and an elevation gain of about 650m. We will finish today’s ride on Veliko polje Olympic venue and overnight at Hotel FERI. 

    Accommodation: Hotel FERI, Igman mountain
    Meals: L,D

    Day 2:

    We start today’s ride directly from Hotel FERI. Today’s route takes us through the Bjelasnica ‘Olympic mountain’ region to Lukomir, Bosnia & Herzegovina’s highest village (1,469m). The ride will be 4-5 hours with approximately 20% singletrack. We finish the day in the traditional village of Umoljani where we overnight in a simple mountain cabin.

    Accommodation: Pension Umoljani, Bjelasnica mountain
    Meals: B,L,D

    Day 3:

    Starting directly from our mountain cabin, we ride a fantastic ‘three mountain tour’ taking in Bjelasnica, Visocica and Prenj. The scenery is truly spectacular as we venture into a very remote region. The ride is approximately 5-hours on a mix of gravel and asphalt roads, and it ends with an exhilarating 1,500m descent to Boracko Lake where we overnight.

    Accommodation: Pension Sunce, Boracko lake
    Meals: B,L,D

    Day 4:

    After a 15-minute ride to Borci, we head out on a spectacular ride through the region known by the locals as the ‘Herzegovinian Himalayas’. This is a tough ride of around 5-hours with plenty of climbing on a mix of gravel and asphalt roads. We take in Mt. Velež, before finishing the ride with an incredibly exhilarating road descent to Potoci. From here a 20 minutes ride takes us down to Mostar. In the afternoon hours we will take a 2-hours transfer back to Sarajevo, where we finish our 4 day biking journey. Meals: B,L
