Day 1 - Sunday (arrival day)

Arrival Sunday afternoon, pick-up at the Airport or your accommodation in Sarajevo, and transfer to Lazy Horse equestrian center, 30 minutes drive. Enjoy the afternoon settling into your accommodation, take a walk in the forest, or watch the riding lessons taking place in the riding arenas. The evening brings along a dinner with the group and your guide, with a ride and safety briefing. The chefs at the barbecue will be your hosts, Rasim and Jason. Overnight at Lazy Horse.

Day 2 - Monday (two hours of riding)

After breakfast, you will have an introduction to the horses and an evaluation of the riding skills of the group. You will then saddle up for an easy morning ride of approximately two hours. The aim of this introductory ride is to get used to the horse with whom you will hopefully spend an unforgettable riding week. Lunch at the farm, followed by a trip to Sarajevo for a guided two-hour walking tour, learning all about the history of this beautiful city. Dinner at a local restaurant in Sarajevo. Overnight at Lazy Horse.

Day 3 - Tuesday (five to six hours of riding)

Make sure your bag is packed to go into your trail support vehicle. You will depart in the morning after breakfast on a trail heading northwest. Well-rested horses and flat sections invite a light trot or canter. You will continue downhill towards the Lepenica River where you can ride through the shallow water and enjoy its waterfalls. For the next 15 kilometers, you will mainly walk and trot on forest paths with a few Everglades.

Enjoy the view and calming rush of the mountain river Crna Rijeka (Black River). For lunch, you will have fresh grilled trout. The sound of the Crna Rijeka welcomes a quick nap in hammocks in the shade. In the late afternoon, you will arrive at your first accommodation, the Mountain Lodge Lopata, and have the opportunity to chat about your impressions while enjoying local culinary delights. Mountain lodges are open for hikers only on weekends, in most cases you are the only guests.

Day 4 - Wednesday (five hours of riding)

After a good breakfast and strong coffee, you will prepare the horses for the next part of the route. The elevation will now continue to rise and after climbing 1,324 meters, your first stop will be a high plane which is located at an altitude of 1,744 meters above sea level. The incline is gentle through forest paths and open glades. You will cross the tree limit at 1,600 meters and have the spectacle called Bitovnja opening up in front of you. The vast mountain pastures invite a canter and gallop. The scenery is breathtaking and often looks as if one could see from one end of Bosnia to the other.

After 10 kilometers of hard riding, your trail support car will await you and welcome you to a well-deserved picnic in Bitovnja. A hot traditional Bosnian dish of bean soup and sausages will be served on the spectacular high plains. Afterward, you will continue through the vast pastures. One can certainly say that this is the most beautiful section of your adventure. After a few hours of riding, you will leave Bitovnja behind you and descend to your next overnight destination, the Mountain Lodge Pogorelica. After a well-deserved dinner, you can summarize your impressions and plan for tomorrow.

Day 5 - Thursday (five to six hours of riding)

With your horses and riders well-rested, you will have a demanding riding section of about 25 kilometers in front of you. You will start climbing towards the mountain Zec, which will take you about three hours to complete. You will pass through mountain pastures where shepherds graze thousands of sheep during the summer. Further down in the valley, you will see their huts, pastures, and sheep shelters. All around you, you will have the Zec mountain slopes with natural plantations of cranberries and blueberries. On a clear day, you can even see Sarajevo from this location.

You will stop at a spectacular viewpoint to enjoy a saddle-bag picnic for lunch and let the horses graze. After an hour of rest, you will continue to your next destination - Prokoško Lake. Many have written about the beauty of this fairy tale lake, calling it the eye of the mountain or natural gem. It is located in the heart of the mountain range Vranica, which, according to many, is the most beautiful tourist destination in Bosnia and Herzegovina. There are shepherds’ huts around the lake, built entirely of wooden logs. One of these traditional cabins is where you will spend the night.

Day 6 - Friday (three to four hours of riding, spa and massage included)

You will leave the beautiful scenery of Prokoško Lake and ride towards the village of Toveriste, where your horse transportation back to the Lazy Horse Equestrian Center will be waiting. The section is approximately three to four hours long and it links Prokoško Lake with the small picturesque Bosnian town of Fojnica. Before loading your horses in the trailers, you will have a final saddle-bag picnic watching the horses graze.

After lunch, horses and riders will both be transferred back to Lazy Horse by car. There you will change and take the short drive to a beautiful local spa for swimming, sauna, steam rooms, and a massage. Once fully relaxed after a fabulous week of riding, you will head back to the farm for a wonderful farewell dinner. Overnight at Lazy Horse.

Day 7 - Saturday

After breakfast, you can say goodbye to the horses before being transferred to the airport, your accommodation in Sarajevo or enjoy further tourist excursions provided by your partners.
