What to Expect
Enjoy a complimentary pickup and transfer from your accommodation to the starting point of the hike and back. We depart from your site at 8 am where our English spiking guide greets you and transports you to the slopes of Velez Mountain situated near Mostar. Route starts from the hill Fortica, a slope of Velež, where we take our hike up the rocky terrain to the mountain peak. After few hours we reach Brasina peak from which we enjoy beautiful scenery of nearby mountains. During a sunny day there is even the opportunity to glance at the Mediterranean see in the distance which you will, for sure, capture with some camera shots. In one corner we take a different perspective by visiting the old underground shelter and recalling a part of country’s history.  During communism period in ex. Yugoslavia this peak, as important communication base, was closed and secured area by Yugoslav National Army (JNA). Today it’s free for a visit and opened to everyone to climb and experience the remains of underground base 50m deep below the mountain top. During the civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina the base was damaged with explosives, but still, it's walk-able and visiting it we get a striking image of firmness and protection in case of an air strike that was built for. After resting for a while on the mountain top having complementary food and snacks we return our way back to Mostar.
