Hike the Via Dinarica or bike the Star Trails…
If there is one thing that stands out in Vareš, it is the remarkable beauty of Mother Nature. Flanked on both sides by Perun and Zvijezda Mountains, Vareš is a nature lovers paradise. Endless tracks of thick conifer forests, an abundance of wildlife such as bears, wolves, boar, birds of prey, and deer, quaint old-world villages in the highlands, are all connected by first class hiking and biking trails. Nature’s Way for bikers is blazed by the Star Trekkers Trail that expands the entire range of mountains that encompass Vareš. The hiking trail is highlighted by the Via Dinarica, one of the world’s best new trails and nominated by National Geographic Adventure as one of the World’s Best Destinations in 2017.
The Via Dinarica Green Trail goes straight the heart of Vareš and joins it with a larger trail that covers over 1,500 km in Bosnia and Herzegovina alone. The Via Dinarica Trail is well marked, making it a perfect few day outing to Vareš, with private accommodation in the local villages or in mountain huts available on the entire length of the trail. In Vareš, our aim is to take you back to the basics, the way nature intended. Along the Star Trail one can also see a diverse range of cultural and historical monuments. Be sure to not miss the cultural and historical monuments of the old mosque in Karićima from the Otoman era, the oldest Catholic Church in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the protected medieval necropolis’.
