We’ll trek to Seven Mills and the beautiful source used for centuries as energy to grind wheat into flour. We hug the ridge until Rakitnica canyon awesomely opens up before us. After 5-10 minutes of going uphill, we reach the Cascades of Studeni Potok. Here, at certain times of the year, the stream falls over more than 20 cascades 400 meters into the canyon below. En route, we’ll find a few water sources where we can fill our drink.

    From the Studeni Fields we hike along Obalj’s side. All along, you will be treated by sweet views and cool breezes coming off of Visocica and Treskavica mountains. After a short break and cooling ourselves, we begin our gentle ascent (200 m) to Gornji (upper) Lukomir. There is also a Donji (lower) Lukomir, long since abandoned by villagers due to the destructive effects of avalanches in this region.

    Lukomir is Bosnia’s highest village at 1,469 meters, with its ancient stecci (medieval tombstones) where villagers stick to the “old way” of doing things. Traditional dress, the occasional turban and fez are still wornand go hand in hand with the more contemporary bliss’ of everyday life, electricity and running water. On the edge of the village you will be treated by a rare view of Rakitnica canyon, Obalj and Visocica mountain. Cows and sheep are sharing the life space here with the villagers on the regular daily bases. You have arrived at the end of the world, while enjoying a hearty lunch with one of the local family in village

Expect deep canyon walls, endemic flora and fauna, and a wild & pristine ambiance that only the Neretva can provide. Our modernly equipped team are ready to guide first timers or old pros on a wonderful white water adventure.
