Mountains are calling and we must go! Follow us up to the olympic mountain Trebevic and enjoy in tasty picnic lunch from mountain top! Meeting at Torus Tours office Obala Isa-bega Ishakovica 3. We will have around 10 kilometers of cycling on a asphalt road which was a front line during the war which happend here in Bosnia and Herzegovina 92'-95'. We can have a look at Sniper Alley from above! After that we have 4 kilometers of gravel road and we are at the top of the mountain! We will decide which trail is the best option for us from here.Trails are 3-7 kilometers long. After trails we will head to abandoned bob sleigh track from Olympic games which were held in 1984. This is one of a only few bob sleigh track in which you can actually ride a bike! After ride down the bob sleigh track we are choosing between trails again. When we finish with any of those we are going to the city center through narrow streets of Sarajevo! Total ride is around 25 kilometers with 1170m in elevation gain.
Who knew that Bosnia had some of the greatest tours? The tour guide was this awesome guy who was far too patient with my slow pace as I suffered up the mountain. The scenery was absolutely beautiful. Most of your time on this trip will be spent pushing a bike up steep paths, so be prepared to either struggle on the bike or on your feet (assuming you are like me and aren't in particularly great shape). There is a cable car that can take you halfway up, and I believe he said that they will take you up in a van for an extra fee if it is just too hard. The lunch was a small travel tray with traditional local food. He carried it in his backpack, so don't expect too much. I really enjoyed it though. The trip back down the mountain was wonderful! The trails were fun and the scenery was distractingly beautiful. The only problem for me was that the bikes weren't the proper mountain bikes I was expecting. They were not optimal for trail riding, but they didn't feel unsafe. All in all, this was the best tour I have ever been on. If you are a fan of mountain biking and hiking up mountains, this is definitely the trip for you!
