From Sarajevo: Full-Day Lukomir Village Private Tour

1. From Sarajevo: Full-Day Lukomir Village Private Tour

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.

What people are saying about Herzegovina

We just finished our tour with Alem and it was…fantastic. The tour, food, and guide are well worth the very reasonable price and your time. You will eat too much while listening to Alem’s extensive knowledge on all things Sarajevo. Our tour was just us, so we had his full attention as we asked a zillion questions about his city. You will get to try so many variations of Bosnian cuisine—-our favorites being the coffee and the final stop of vegetables stuffed with meat and spices. You will see the goodness of Sarajevo and a make a friend with Alem. Can’t recommend this tour enough! *not the best option for vegetarians. *Lots of walking but at a very reasonable pace and very few steps. (Ok for prams) *Plus you’re allowed to bring what you don’t finish with you for take-away

Denis was fantastic and full of energy despite us being a very small group on that particular day. It was great to see his genuine excitement to tell us about the city he loves and calls home. The tour is a great combination of history, religion, food, inspiring characters, and even some humour. It really encourages you to look past Sarajevo's war torn past to consider everything it is in the present and will be in the future. Highly recommended!

Hidaja was an amazing and knowledgable tour guide, and the tour was everything we could have hoped for and more! The food was really good and the workshops were fascinating. We recommend not eating breakfast before though, because of the many dishes and big portions but you’ll often have the option to bring the leftovers home as take-away. Really amazing overall!

DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!! Fariz our guide was awesome!! Great mix of history with plenty of tasty food stops. I love the walking tours, and this is like a walking tour with food! Probably hard to do the tour as a vegan, vegetarian seems possible.

Excellent tour and Irfan is such an amazing tour guide!
