At the height of 1.495 meters the highest settled village in Bosnia and Herzegovina named Lukomir is located near Sarajevo. Stone houses, wooden roofs and women wearing traditional clothes are the main characteristics of local life when the village is reachable, from April until December. On this tour you will be able to go sightseeing, taste traditional food, and if you wish to do some hiking, then this trip is a fantastic idea as there is a hiking area along the ridge of the Rakitnica Canyon.
Lukomir is located just 42 kilometers away from Sarajevo and represents the highest settled village in Bosnia and Herzegovina and one of the main Bosnian tourist attractions. The stone houses with wooden roofs and women still wearing traditional clothes are main characteristics of local life from April until December when the village is reachable. Settled at the height of 1,495 meters on the top of Bjelasnica Mountain, Lukomir has stayed out of human touch and represents the most traditional nomadic lifestyle. Indeed, access to the village is impossible from the first snows in December until late April and sometimes even later, except by skis or on foot.
Lukomir is known for its traditional attire and the women still wear the hand- knitted costumes that have been worn for centuries. Domestic food such as pie, domestic donuts, traditional Bosnian coffee and admirable sightseeing are definitely the kind of experience you do not want to miss. Let’s make one more experience together. From there, you can do some magnificent hiking in the area along the ridge of the Rakitnica Canyon, which drops 800 meters down below.
