Hiking tours

Zelengorai s, according to many, the most beautiful national park in the entire region (found between Montenegro & Bosnia and Herzegovina). It is vast and scenic almost beyond words. Zelengora has many great and imposing peaks (Bregoč, Kozjestrane, Videž, Stog, Orlovac, Planinica, Todor, Kalelija, Zimomor, Dumoš, Uglješinvrh), at the same time it has a humbling effect on its visitors with its calm atmosphere shaped by dense and ancient forests. A collection of lakes: Crno,Bijelo, Gornje bare, Donje bare, Orlovačko, Kotlaničko, Štirinsko, Borilovačko, Kladopoljsko (known as the “The Mountain Eyes”) giveZelengora a special (almost mystical) beauty. Scattered over the immense fieldsofZelengora(in a few more accessible areas) are shepherds’ hutswhich add an ancestral human element to this vast wilderness.

We call the mountains “Maglic” and “Volujak” the glorious giants, made of cold steep cliffs&mountain tops on which snow is present throughoutthe year. These peaks provide a drastic contrast to Zelengora (literally meaning “green forests”). Our experienced tour guides & climbers know fully well the nature of these mountains. On our tours they will inform you of the history of the mountains but they will alsowarn inexperienced visitors of their dangers and unpredictability. Auto camp “Drina”, as part of its own tours organizes one day mountain trips to the most beautiful and attractive locations – although overnight trips are also possible. Auto camp “Drina” organizes tours guided by experienced and licensed guides. Prices for our mountain tours vary depending on distance which has to be traveled – we charge around 40 EUR per person including Dinner.
