Transfer from airport in Dubrovnik to our first stop – Trebinje. We’ll visit the old center of the city, full of buildings dating from several centuries ago. Later, a lunch break in one of the local restaurants offering local cuisine.

Then, as a perfect addition for our full stomachs, we’ll visit Tvrdoš Monastery with organized tasting of their famous wines. After a cheerful reception, we head on to our accommodation in Tjentište, just in time to prepare and discuss our tomorrow’s adventure over dinner.

Day 2

Saturday: Climbing Maglić – highest peak of Bosnia

We’ll rise early, at 7.00 am, then breakfast at 7.30h, so we can be prepared for departure to Dragoš sedlo at 8.00h.  There we’ll make a brief stop to experience and photograph a stunning view of the Perućica rainforest and waterfall Skakavac, located in the heart of Perućica. We then continue with our jeeps towards Prijevor, from where we’ll clearly see our goal for today – Maglic.

From here we start our climb, secured by a hiking trail all the way to the top of Maglić. After around 3 hours of hiking, we reach the top of Maglic (2386m), there, we’ll take a break to enjoy its glorious views, while also replenish our energy in the form of a lunch packet.

Well refreshed, we head down the same path to Prijevor and our return to Tjentište. Tired and happy, we arrive just in time for dinner. Later, if there’s some energy left, we’ll take a short tour to visit the valley of heroes and monument of the Battle of Sutjeska which took place in 1943.
