Tour overview

Lukomir is a village located on the Bjelasnica mountain. It is considered the last Bosnian village with the settlement on 1.495 m above sea level. When you enter Lukomir you will get the feeling as if the time has stopped in this community. The main reason are the people who have been living the same kind of lifestyle for hundreds of years. 

 Considering the height you will be able to witness some of the most astonishing views. By hiking the hill right above Lukomir you will be able to take a look at 1000m Rakitnica canyon, which will simply take your breath away. Besides this you will also be able to meet some of the giants (mountain Visocica is one of them) that are protecting Lukomir village.

 By exploring Lukomir you will learn more about the last traditional settlement in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Learn about their customs and their way of living in harshest conditions on a mountain region. The ideal time for visiting Lukomir is in Spring, Summer, and early Autumn. 

Residents of Lukomir are not present during the winter season, as the village becomes unapproachable. But they do return to their well-known lifestyle with the arrival of Spring. Experience their lifestyle, enjoy the traditionally made lunch and coffee and witness the most beautiful mountains-capes in Bosnia.

The tour starts at 8 AM from in front of our office in Sarajevo where you will meet your guide for the tour and transportation to Umoljani Village. Estimated arrival to Umoljani is around 9 AM from where we will start our hiking trip towards Lukomir. During the hiking trip, there will be plenty of stops so you will be able to refresh yourself and take a few shots of beautiful Bosnian landscape.

Upon the arrival to Lukomir we‘ll have a coffee break to catch our breath. While in Lukomir, you‘ll have free time to explore surroundings by yourself. Free time ends with a lunch traditionally made by the local “chefs”. Departure from Lukomir is after lunch. You will return to Umoljani via Cold Creek trail.
