Bosnia and Herzegovina: Mountain biking from Prokoško Lake over Stražica to Fojnica

Time flies and it was already our last day of our 3rd Bosnian MTB trip. Another nice breakfast and I decided to place my motorbike into the trailer of a van, so I can also cycle on my way down. We strapped the motorbike as much as we could and I just hoped it will survive the bumpy way down to Fojnica.

Soon it was time to ride the bike and again our group split into many small ones. Ours decided to cycle up towards Sarajevska vrata and then push them to Stražica, 1806 m. From there we had great and sometimes quite steep terrain all the way down to Fojnica, where we all met again.

We unloaded my motorbike and made a space for bikes. Everything was soon packed and with Nada we said goodbye to others and continued with our own plan back home. Another great MTB Bosnia trip was behind us.

Bosnia and Herzegovina: Mountain biking on Vranica

Our 2nd day of mountain biking began and after another great breakfast we started riding from Prokoško lake, 1636 m towards the saddle called Sarajevska vrata on an altitude 1955 m, where we regroupped. Soon we moved on towards our first goal, a mountain hut Rosinj.

Although we were too early at our destination, people were already waiting for us. Beer, home made cheese and vegetables were immediately on our table and they also started the barbecue for the ćevapi.  Because of all the food and beer we hardly decided to leave. After almost three hours we said hi and goodbye to our friend Besim, who showed up a while ago and we moved on.

First group decided to move down to Gornji Vakuf and cycle back home, 2nd group chose same way back, while we, the third group, decided to return back over some peaks.

First peak was Rosinj and we had to carry our bikes to the 2059 m high top. After a short descent, we did the same when we conquered Nadkrstac, with 2112 m highest peak in Vranica mountain range. The last peak on our way was Krstac, 2069 m, and from there we returned back to Prokoško lake.

We finished another day with superb dinner and a lot of apples.
