Hiking Tour Itinerary


Discover the majestic Dinaric Alps



Day 1 - Dubrovnik to Mostar


We will collect you from Dubrovnik Airport and transfer you to Mostar which will be our base for next 7 days. On the way to Mostar we will visit Popovo Polje Karst Field. Almost all of Herzegovina is made up of arid limestone, known as karst. In this area, the only land suitable for cultivation are small depressions, karst fields, between barren mountains.
The limestone karst fields of Herzegovina are amongst the largest in the world, creating amazing water sources and underground aquifer systems and caves. With over 6 km of passageways, the Vjetrenica Caves are the largest in Bosnia and Herzegovina. They are located in the Popovo Polje valley, and are named for the cold air which blows from the entrance in the warmer parts of the year (Vjetrenica means "wind hole"). The cave houses the large subterranean biodiversity with over 200 species ranging from cave-dwelling fish and insects to shellfish that only survive in underground systems. Vjetrenica also has ancient cave drawings of bears and leopards estimated to be over 10,000 years old.
