Life in the Dinaric Mountains moves to the ageless rhythms of the past, and this one-day trip to Lukomir Village offers unique insights.
After an hour and a half drive beginning in Sarajevo you arrive in Lukomir, Bosnia’s highest and most isolated mountain village. The traditional lifestyles of the Dinaric highlanders are still practiced here, providing a unique window into Europe’s past. Traditional dress is still worn, and goes hand in hand with the more familiar signs of everyday life, such as electricity and running water.On the edge of the village you will be treated to a breathtaking view of Rakitnica Canyon, which drops 800m below, as well as the neighboring Obalj and Visočica mountains. We will introduce you to the villagers and you can learn first-hand how they live in this beautiful but difficult environment. Next hike to the Peruce Waterfall (about 40 meters tall) before returning to Gornji (upper) Lukomir.At the end of the day you will also have the opportunity to see and purchase local handcrafts.
