Itinerary

  • Our guide will meet you in front of your accommodation. Due to the distance of the location, we use vehicle to get to the starting hiking point, but the rest of the tour is done on foot through amazing nature surroundings. 
  • As soon as we leave our car, we shall start hiking through the beautiful Mostarska Bijela valley. 
  • It is a six kilometre long and wild valley where vertical rocks often reach heights at over 300m above. Majority of the trail are the riverbed waterways carved by the Bijela river.
     
  • Depending on the season, Bijela river for the most of its flow through Herzegovinian karst can be completely underground, but also during the spring, it could be quite tricky to cross. 
  • During the walk animal wildlife is so easy to spot. We can easily meet up viper snakes (Vipera ammodytes) and several types of differently sized frogs and lizards. The region is known to be home for chamois, wild horses and eagles, with stunning biodiversity of herbs and trees.
  • Later trail will take us by an interesting cemetery of the Lojpur family and via an amazing set of rock formations called “Kravlje pećine” (eng. Cow caves), we shall reach the entrance to the Bijela river canyon itself.
  • Cave being 80m long, is a 15-20 minute walk through the ice cold, crystal clear, drinkable water flow. Perfectly polished, non slippery rocks are quite easy to walk, and if you are an expert jumper, you can even avoid wet feet too. (But where is the fun then? Get wet and enjoy this amazing nature creation as much as you can!)
  • At the very end of the cave is a kind of, “heavens open” above us, 10m high waterfall. The water comes from higher parts of Prenj mountain and via these karst crafted holes, canyons and passages, eventually ending in the beautiful Neretva river. Upper flow of the river is not accessible beyond the point of the waterfall. At the very bottom the waterfall is a small river spring too.
  • Spending 30min to an hour inside the cave is recommended and stunning photos can be taken.
  • The return will take approximately 2.30 hours.

What to Bring

What Do I Need to Bring?

  • Comfortable hiking boots or thick bottom sport sneakers
  • Spare light shoes or flip-flops to explore the cave and not getting wet your main boots/shoes
  • 5 l water
  • Sun cream and hat (summer time)
  • Rain jacket (in case of bad weather)
  • 2 spare t-shirts to change
  • Light-weight, breathable walking trousers
  • Flashlight (if you have it)
  • A small backpack to carry personal items (water, snacks, shirts to use during the hike)
