Highlights of Bosnia & Herzegovina

Sarajevo - Mostar - Trebinje


A short self-drive to explore the main sights of this fascinating country, full of history & stunning scenery.

START / FINISH - Sarajevo

Activity code: BOFD02

Duration: 6 Days

Take a chance to visit Bosnia & Herzegovina on a short break; in just under one week you can explore the main sights of the country travelling in a circuit that includes Mostar, Sarajevo and Trebinje.

Our suggested route around the country takes in some of the most scenic roads and beautiful vistas imaginable in the whole of Europe, there are canyons, mountains, lakes and waterfalls galore - these include the Neretva & Drina valleys, Jablanicko & Blecko lakes and the Skakavec and Kravice waterfalls. There are historic villages, huge monuments from the communist era, ancient sites and castles around almost every corner - these include Pocitelj, Konjic, Foca and Stolac.

At the beginning or end of your trip (depending upon flight schedules) you get to spend a full day in the capital, Sarajevo, which has so much to offer enquiring visitors, not just its historic heritage and the legacy of the Winter Olympic Games but the memory of the siege that lasted almost 4 years. We've also included a night in the lovely small town of Trebinje to break the journey where an early morning walk along the river is a delightful start to the day.

Mostar may be a day trip destination for many holidaying in Croatia but its stunning bridge, which was lovingly reconstructed after the war in the 1990s, and the old town's atmosphere are well worth the overnight stay.

Your fly drive can be as active or leisurely-paced as you please. Staying one night at each stop allows the maximum amount of sightseeing; two or more nights will allow you to do more side trips, whilst staying in one place will give you the opportunity to relax and explore the local area.

If you would like to visit these wonderful places without driving then we can supply a private driver for the duration or, alternatively, pre-book train tickets for you between the main locations. We can also pre-book guided sightseeing, lunches, extra activities and visits on your itinerary as required.

On arrival you will have a private transfer service directly to your hotel. Once in Sarajevo you can spend the evening taking in the atmosphere of the old town and begin to appreciate its long history and the much more recent turbulent period of the city.

A full day to explore Sarajevo's capital city.

When travelling about Sarajevo you will feel totally at ease as there is a real, 'welcome to Sarajevo' atmosphere throughout the city. Places to visit include the old town and, in particular, the Bascarsija as well as many fine cultural sites such as the Bosniak institute, which holds various exhibitions on Sarajevo culture and Sarajevo history, the National Theatre of Bosnia and the National Museum. Whilst in the city your curiosity about the War of Independence and the Siege of Sarajevo can be satisfied with a number of sympathetic exhibitions and experiences such as the Freedom Tunnel and we definitely recommend a guided tour to understand what it was like to live here during this turbulent period.

You may also choose to visit Jahorina National Park, site of the 1984 Winter Olympics, and, also not far from the city, is the second tallest waterfall in Europe (98m), so beautiful that it is worth the short trip. The vegetation surrounding the waterfall contains a variety of rare species.

A beautiful scenic drive is in store today. You'll leave Sarajevo heading southeast and following the Zeleznica river upstream to cross the mountains at the Rogoj Pass (1161m) heading to Foca on the Drina river. The next section of this route involves two mountain passes over 1000m, the Sutjeska National Park with Maglic Mountain (Bosnia's highest peak) dominating the views and Bilecko Lake; there is also so much fabulous scenery in-between.

A full day in the delightful town of Trebinje in the Republic of Srpska. Trebinje's Stari Grad (old town) is intact and is full of life in the evenings offering locals and visitors alike a choice of bars, restaurants and ice-cream parlours. Trebinje has its own Old Bridge (the Arslanagica) which is worthy of a stroll alongside the river to view and walk over (why not try this as early as possible for some great photos). Return to your hotel and a visit to the traditional market on the main square before heading out of town in the afternoon towards Mostar. Along the way you could visit any of the Radmila Stecci, the Vjetrenica caves, the Kravice waterfalls and the historic village of Pocitelj.

A full day in Mostar to relax and explore the historic town with its world-famous bridge. You also have the option to go walking in hills nearby. Additional places to visit include nearby Blagaj with its castle and famous Dervish House tucked under the cliff and overlooking the river.

Today you embark upon one of the most scenic drives in the Balkans, along the Neretva river valley with its impressive canyon not far to the north of Mostar. Your route also passes the beautiful lake of Jablaniko and historic town of Konjic prior to arrival back in Sarajevo.

NB. if your flight schedule dictates then we can reverse the itinerary or you may choose to spend an extra night in Sarajevo prior to your departure.

Drop off car or private transfer to Sarajevo Airport.
