Sarajevo snowshoeing tour details

Sarajevo snowshoeing tour experience on Olympic mountain Bjelašnica is a dynamic activity in which tourists and local participants will be able to present interesting cultural and historical facts, especially the Winter Olympics, flora and fauna.

Facts about Bjelašnica

A quick introduction to Bjelašnica

Bjelašnica is a mountain in central Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is found directly to the southwest of Sarajevo, bordering Mt. Igman. Bjelašnica’s tallest peak, by which the whole mountain group got its name, rises to an elevation of 2067 meters (6782 feet). Other notable peaks are Krvavac (2061 m), Mali Vlahinja (2055 m), and Hranisava (1964 m). The Bjelašnica range is bordered by the Rakitnica in the south, the Neretva in the west, Mt Igman in the northeast and Mt Ivan in the northwest. Only at 20 minutes distance of Sarajevo, it is a tourist attraction for hiking and skiing.

Name etymology

The mountain’s name stems from the root bijel, which means “white”.

Bjelašnica geology

Geologically, Bjelašnica is part of the Dinaric Alps and is formed largely of secondary and tertiary sedimentary rock, mostly Limestone and Dolomite.

What makes this experience amazing

This winter we present an entertaining activity for all-mountain lovers: snowshoeing. If you have ever tried this amazing sport, then you surely know that great fun and unforgettable memories require snow, sticks and a little exercise.

The experience of snowshoeing is something you will never forget. Walking in the snow certainly adds a new dimension to hiking and climbing a mountain is a striking way to spend your weekends.

Hiking is easy and fun in spring, summer and autumn, but during the winter these healthy walks are now under 2 meters of snow, so hiking on snowshoes and poles, with the sun shining on the snow, is another reason for this challenging sport.

If you’re into snowshoeing or would like to try it out as a new activity, don’t hesitate. A new, specially crafted Sarajevo snowshoeing tour experience will help you master it. We offer you a pleasant atmosphere and all the needed skills to enjoy the charms of snowshoeing on our Olympic beauty Bjelašnica throughout the winter season.

You shouldn’t hesitate to go with them.
I recently went on a trip to Bosnia with my family and our tour guide was Edin. He was friendly and provides excellent taste and recommendations when it comes to food in Sarajevo.

Edin is also unafraid to make himself a part of the family, and in return, makes his tourists feel welcome in Bosnia. I had a wonderful time listening to his knowledge about Bosnia and Islam.

Don’t hesitate to go and contact them, they’ll make your trip to Bosnia worth it.

Wonderful afternoon tour
I highly recommend you contact Edin or Eddie to show you around Sarajevo or Bosnia Herzegovina. Excellent guide full of facts and entertaining. He took a history of the area and Olympics tour. Edin was a dream for keeping me informed and helping me understand the past and recent history of the area. I will return.
