Snowshoeing in Bosnia

Marcelle Cassar

A memorable and enjoyable holiday, as much for its' educational interest as the activity itself. Living and walking among the recent turbulent history of Sarajevo was fascinating. Hearing events from those who experienced them first hand, delivered with respect and dignity, was very humbling. The landscape we snowshoed through was very picturesque;beech and conifer woods, far reaching vistas of distant mountain ranges, lowland pastures dotted with haystacks.The Bosnain people were very hospitable, friendly and accomodating too.

The trip proved to be a great mix of peaks & passes, history & culture and food & fun. While the lack of snow switched the trip from snowshoeing to winter hiking, it meant an unrestricted schedule visiting all areas on the itinerary and more, enjoy stunning views and exploring some hidden gems.

The trip became Hiking in Bosnia due to the lack of snow, though we all carried the snowshoes, optimistically, on the first day. On account of this, we were able to walk further and higher on some days, as well as appreciate the delicate beauty of new spring flowers underfoot. The mountains, whether snow covered or dry, provide a rugged backdrop to a nation that is working to create a new future from a complicated past.

A rewarding week that combined relaxed hiking, homely accommodation and stimulating learning about a corner of Europe that I previously knew shamefully little about.

A number of events happened which could have affected this holiday. We all lost luggage on the first day & there was very little snow. Depsite this, our guide, Lorenc, overcame all of these obstacles to make this a thoroughly enjoyble holiday. We all lost our luggage because our plane from Zagrab to Sarajevo left early to avoid the fog which was getting worse. But in their effort to leave, there wasn't any time to load our luggage. But it all worked out ok. The holiday included a tour of Sarajevo anyway, so Lorenc did this first & organised collection of our luggage after finding what plane it was coming in on. But for the snowshoeing - there was very little snow. So Lorenc took us trekking instead! This included a walk up to Bjelašnica which could have been dangerous because of the risk of hard packed & icy snow. However, Lorenc skillfully avoided these parts & we had a safe & enjoyable day instead. The last day should have been snow shoeing in the Trebević Mountains, but knowing that there was no snow, Lorenc proposed, & we agreed, that we go back to Bjelašnica where there was a ski slope with snow. So, we finished the last day actually doing some snow shoeing. All the time, we were impressed by Lorenc's attention to safety. He always carried a large rucksac which seemed well equiped to handle any emergency. He led us with much humour & competence.

We had a great holiday - in spite of the extreme weather conditions which meant that the itinerary had to be re-scheduled somewhat - I've never seen quite so much snow! The countryside was beautiful, the Bosnian people seem warm and friendly and with so much unknown history and culture, it was an extremely interesting place to visit.

A week before we set out we wondered if it would happen because of too much snow, but it did and we had a great time. It wasn't possible to do the itinerary as planned because of the amount of snow but the leaders always had good alternatives to ensure we could enjoy the trip.
