    This five day adventure through Sutjeska National Park is one of the best Bosnia and Herzegovina has to offer, covering Perućica – the old growth forest, Maglić – Bosnia’s highest peak, several high mountain lakes, dramatic views and wild life; it also presents the opportunity to reconnect with nature.

    Day 1:

    The group will depart Sarajevo for Sutjeska National Park, which is a two hour drive. After arriving at the park the group will head toward the tranquil Donje Bare Lake, and walk through beech forest and open mountainous terrain to the summit of Planinica (1,772 metres). The next destination is Gornje Bare Lake, for which a difficult, slippery and boulder covered slope will have to be navigated. At the lake the group will break for lunch.
    After lunch, the group will return to the hut via Gornje Bare. Early dinner will be served, after transfer back to the hotel in Tjentište.

    Day 2:

    The group will set off for Orlovačko Lake in a remote and relatively unknown area of the Zelengora mountain range. From the lake, the group will set off for Bregoč (2,029 metres) along an unmarked path over open grassland. Participants will walk through a steep valley before coming to the foot of a rising ridge that leads to the summit of Bregoč.
    After a short break the group will hike down to the various lakes of Zelengora. The day will be wrapped up with a swim at Orlovačko and an early dinner.

    Day 3:

    The group will drive a little more than 45 minutes to Perućica medieval forest. The park is a treasure trove of wildlife and a large number of endemic plants. The park also houses Bosnia and Herzegovina’s highest and impressive mountain Maglić, named after the thick fog that often surrounds its rocky peak.
    The car will be left behind at a viewpoint – Dragoš Sedlo – with its colorful view of the one of two remaining medieval forests in Europe – Perućica. The group will pass a lovely waterfall “Skakavac” which plunges 75 meters down into the dark spruce and beech forest of Perućica, and then a magical forest of beautiful 50 meter tall spruce and beech trees. Participants are likely to come across trees that are 200 to 300 years old.
    It is likely to be sunset by the time the group drives back to the hotel.

    Day 4:

    The group will head for Lokva Dernečište, perched at 1,667 metres, where the day’s walk through forest and open mountainous terrain will begin. The ascent of Maglić Mountain (2,386 metres) will take approximately four hours over well maintained mountain trails with steep cliffs and is by far the most demanding part of the day’s hike.
    People with a fear of heights are not encouraged to venture on this trip. Lunch will be had at Maglić, with its stunning views of Montenegro and Trnovačko Lake with its emerald green water deep below – the tour’s next destination.
    It will take around three hours to descend to Trnovačko Lake, where participants can enjoy the cooling waters and views of Volujak and Maglić. From the lake the group will hike back to Prijevor, and then be transferred back to the hotel in Tjentište.
