Winter Holidays in Bosnia

Bosnia Winter Trips

With much of the country covered by mountainous terrain and previously host to the 1984 Winter Olympics, Bosnia & Herzegovina is the perfect destination for some winter wilderness exploration. The winter season gets started in January and runs through to early March. The temperatures at this time of year are around 4° to -5°C in Sarajevo and can drop to as low as -15°C in the mountains. Snow can fall at any time in this period, but there are often days of glorious sunshine during which to enjoy the fabulous vistas.

Bosnia's conditions and topography mean it offers fantastic snowshoeing opportunities in its sparsely populated and lesser-visited mountains. You will feel as though you have stepped through the wardrobe into Narnia as you make your way through the pine forests and past majestic frozen waterfalls. While staying in the local ‘Katuni’ settlements you will be able to try home-smoked meat and homemade brandy, and on a clear night it will be worth stepping outside to admire a star-filled sky.

The country also has an intriguing history and visits to the Tunnel Museum in Sarajevo and the famous Mostar bridge add a fascinating cultural dimension to winter holidays in Bosnia. Walking around the streets of Sarajevo you will be able to absorb the city's vibrant atmosphere, a perfect complement to your wildnerness adventure.
