Lukomir hiking tour is perfect for nature lovers since Lukomir is Bosnia’s highest and most isolated mountain village.
Lukomir is like a living ethnological museum, where the customs of nomadic tribes and Dinaric highlanders are still practised.
We invite you to join us and visit this important part of Bosnia & Herzegovina’s historical, cultural and architectural legacy which is a top-rated rural tourism destination.
Present-day Lukomir gives plenty of evidence that the population descended from Podveležje in Herzegovina. Podveležje, the dry plateau above Mostar, could not provide the herds with enough water to sustain these semi-nomadic tribes, over the summer months. Eventually, many of the villagers from the Podvelezje region made permanent settlements in the canyon and later in the place where it is now located.
Lukomir village is interesting for its unique stone houses with cherry-wood roof tiles. Indeed, access to the village is impossible from the first snows in December until late April. The only way to rach it is by skis or on foot. A newly constructed lodge is now complete to receive guests. From there, you can do some magnificent hiking in the area along the ridge of the Rakitnica Canyon. From the edge of the village, located at almost 1,500 meters above the sea level, you will have a breathtaking view of this canyon. Also you can see the neighboring Obalj and Visočica Mountain. On the other side, you can see Igman, a beautiful Olympic mountain.
In Lukomir you can still see women wearing traditional hand-knitted costumes that had been worn for centuries. They still knit pretty, colourful things for their children and grandchildren. In general, you will see how does everyday life in Lukomir Village look – a normal life, but without electricity, water or internet we are now used to.
Of course, you will be able to try delicious traditional Bosnian food. So, our Lukomir hiking tour will give you an amazing experience.
My partner and I did a full day private tour of Lukomir in late October 2022 which included a 5 hour hike (round trip) from Umoljani. Our guide Sedin was fantastic – he was very knowledgeable of Sarajevo itself as well as the villages we were visiting. The hike offered beautiful scenery and Lukomir is very quaint. Sedin was very considerate – modifying the hiking itinerary based on our experience/fitness such that we were very much at ease throughout the day.
We were so impressed with the Lukomir visit that we contacted Meet Bosnia Tours the next day to see if it was possible that they arrange a hiking tour of Sutjeska National Park. Meet Bosnia Tours went above and beyond to arrange this for my partner. Adnan and Nikola were the guides for this tour and were again very professional and knowledgeable, with my partner’s welfare always front of mind.
We highly recommend Meet Bosnia Tours for exploring all Sarajevo and Bosnia has to offer. Their ability coordinate tours and communicate effectively with clients is exemplary!
It was a tour of Sarajevo including the most of the attractions and sites by outside. Edin is very Nice.
Having travelled many parts of the world, Nihad was the best tour guide I’ve ever had! So enthusiastic and knowledgeable! He spent way more time than we were allotted for our tour!
The village is amazing and so was our guide. We really enjoyed this day. Thank you.
I had Edin as a tour guide and he was eloquent, articulate and very very well informed. I can’t recvend this tour highly enough 😊
