Just 20 minutes outside Sarajevo, the Bjelasnica mountain range towers up. An area loved by hikers and skiers alike, Bjelasnica hosted several components of the 1984 winter Olympic games. The mountain range stretches from Sarajevo to Konjic and includes a range of traditional Bogomil and Bosnian villages, watermills, canyons, waterfalls, lakes, and mountain huts. While large tracts of lush forest hug the base of the mountain range, no forest will be found above the 1500 meter tree line. It is here that Bjelasnica opens up into numerous bald peaks inhabited by wolves, wild boar and bear. The serenity of the landscape is apparent immediately upon arrival. Soft gusts of wind blow through young grass and the occasional oak trail. Numerous trails have been marked and are maintained by the various mountain clubs in the region. It is not uncommon to find other outdoor enthusiasts roaming this area.
