A short self-drive to explore the main sights of this fascinating country, full of history & stunning scenery.
START / FINISH - Sarajevo
Activity code: BOFD02
Duration: 6 Days
Take a chance to visit Bosnia & Herzegovina on a short break; in just under one week you can explore the main sights of the country travelling in a circuit that includes Mostar, Sarajevo and Trebinje.
Our suggested route around the country takes in some of the most scenic roads and beautiful vistas imaginable in the whole of Europe, there are canyons, mountains, lakes and waterfalls galore - these include the Neretva & Drina valleys, Jablanicko & Blecko lakes and the Skakavec and Kravice waterfalls. There are historic villages, huge monuments from the communist era, ancient sites and castles around almost every corner - these include Pocitelj, Konjic, Foca and Stolac.
At the beginning or end of your trip (depending upon flight schedules) you get to spend a full day in the capital, Sarajevo, which has so much to offer enquiring visitors, not just its historic heritage and the legacy of the Winter Olympic Games but the memory of the siege that lasted almost 4 years. We've also included a night in the lovely small town of Trebinje to break the journey where an early morning walk along the river is a delightful start to the day.
Mostar may be a day trip destination for many holidaying in Croatia but its stunning bridge, which was lovingly reconstructed after the war in the 1990s, and the old town's atmosphere are well worth the overnight stay.
Your fly drive can be as active or leisurely-paced as you please. Staying one night at each stop allows the maximum amount of sightseeing; two or more nights will allow you to do more side trips, whilst staying in one place will give you the opportunity to relax and explore the local area.
If you would like to visit these wonderful places without driving then we can supply a private driver for the duration or, alternatively, pre-book train tickets for you between the main locations. We can also pre-book guided sightseeing, lunches, extra activities and visits on your itinerary as required.
Flights are available to book with us through a range of airlines from various UK airports; if we book your flights this means that your holiday will also be fully ATOL protected.
