Why to choose Jahorina snowshoeing?

In addition to sledging, skiing and snowboarding, the number one winter activity in recent years includes snowshoeing!

Walking on snow certainly adds a new dimension to hiking itself, while climbing the mountain in an extraordinarily unique and impressive way ensures that you spend your weekends in winter fun.

More about Jahorina snowshoeing

About Jahorina mountain

One of the definitively most attractive mountains in Bosnia and Herzegovina, after Bjelašnica, is the Jahorina mountain. Its highest peak, Ogorjelica, with an altitude of 1,916 m, certainly represents an adventurous challenge.

This massive mountain section consists of several branches that together stretch 30 kilometres. The central massif of Jahorina includes part of Gola Jahorina and Ravna Planina, and they form the most visited parts of Jahorina. In winter, the winds on Mount Jahorina are often moderately strong with variable direction and strength, which is certainly not enough to prevent activities on Jahorina.

Winds from the north are mostly moderated by the forest and the Romanian Forest Mountains. When it comes to rivers, the Prača and Koluna springs under Jahorina, and the Grabovica, which is also a tributary of the Prača. Then Paljanska Miljacka, and its tributary Bistrica. There is, of course, Kasindolski Potok and Crna Rijeka.

Snowshoeing on Jahorina

The Jahorina snowshoeing tour starts in front of the hotel Rajska Vrata on Jahorina. We are walking through Gola Jahorina towards the Lake and the Olympic bar. The trail we are travelling on is originally 9 km long, with the possibility of correcting the tour to 6 km.

The duration of snowshoeing is about 3 hours, with the possibility of taking a break and returning by snowshoe in agreement with the guests. The elevation is only 210 meters, and it is suitable for all ages.

Resorts on Jahorina

Aparthotel Vučko is the ideal accommodation if you plan to use the ski lift since it is only a two-minute walk from the lift. The resort also offers a ski school for all those who are willing to try it.

Hotel Jahorina is one of the most popular hotels and is located in the heart of the Olympic complex. Because the hotel offers various services from accommodation to gym and spa centre as well as congress hall. The Prača ski slope and the ski bar are within easy reach, so this place is ideal for your weekend.

Hotel Board is also located near the track and offers various services. Similar to the previous hotel, in case you want to snowshoe on Jahorina but also organize a meeting, the hotel offers you a wonderful meeting room and seminars. You can also rent different equipment there or relax in the spa centre after a whole day of snowshoeing on Jahorina.

In case you get hungry while snowshoeing on Jahorina, don’t worry, since you can locate several restaurants in your immediate vicinity. These are restaurants like “Gates of Paradise”, ethnic restaurant “Koliba” and restaurants “Staza” and “Monument”. All the listed restaurants are located along the ski and snowshoe trails.

There is no way we can bypass the ski café “Peggy“, which is one of the most popular places to take a break from snowshoeing before continuing on.
