VLOG in BLOG | Hiking the Rakitnica Canyon, Via Dinarica in Bosnia and Herzegovina

In this video I’m hiking from mountain hut Jezerce on Prenj via Boračko jezero to Lukomir. A trip down memory lane through Bjelašnica’s crazy green wilderness and the unapproachable Rakitnica canyon. Three years ago I got stuck in the Rakitnica canyon. At that time the trail was terribly marked and the path totally overgrown. I took a shortcut, which was stupid. Thorny plants everywhere. Everywhere. My friends who were waiting for me at Boračko jezero called the GSS, the mountain rescue, I could only sit…Continue Reading “Hiking the Rakitnica canyon to Lukomir, Via Dinarica VLOG #2”

It’s been a while, but I’m back on the Via Dinarica. I’m section hiking the parts I loved the most when I was out there in 2016, new routes that will be included in the near future and peaks I skipped because of bad weather. In this video I explore a new old route that’s connecting the Via Dinarica White Trail at Ruište with mountain hut Fortica above Mostar and I’m walking across Prenj. An adventurous hike followed by pure beauty. The typical Via Dinarica…Continue Reading “Hiking from Mostar to Prenj, Via Dinarica VLOG #1”

Some were natural, some were cultural and some were just lines on a map. Lines that create countries.

“Bare in mind that you have still some challenging sections, particularly the descend from Prenj.” That was not the first time someone warned me for this part. Of course this became a big thing in my head. How difficult would it be? What if I can’t make it? What if I loose the trail again?

I felt nervous. It really took some time before I could enjoy the hiking.

Prenj is absolutely one of my favorites along the Via Dinarica White Trail. Not just because of its ridiculously beautiful vistas and views, mostly because Prenj was a place where I had a good dose of fun. With two guys from Tuzla who I met on Boračko campsite, I hiked from Boračko Jezero up to the mountain hut Jezerce. A great new hut on a fantastic location. Perfect place to spend the night. Or two. I really enjoyed the company of the Tuzla-boyz and the weather was extremely good. There was not really a reason to rush on, so I decided to join them on a day-hike to Zelena Glava and stay an extra night at PD Jezerce before I went further on my own.
