According to the writing of "National Geography", the "VIA DINARICA" hiking route has been declared one of the best hiking routes and a recommendation to all hiking enthusiasts for 2017. The mountains covered by this route have been “revealed” by the Highlander team to all nature lovers for years, and if you love nature, love hiking and sleeping in the open air in tents (or mountain lodges), we recommend conquering the lakes of Zelengora. They are called emerald gems of untouched nature hidden at the foot of gigantic mountain ranges, and it is up to you to discover these gems. Zelengora, a mountain with an endless forest complex and pastures, rocky peaks, very rich flora and fauna and nine beautiful lakes, rightly bears the epithet of the most beautiful mountain in BiH. It is located within the National Park "Sutjeska", and its highest peak is Bregoč (2014 m), which you will win on this occasion with the Highlander Team.

We continue across Black Lake (1500 m / above sea level), White Lake (1450 m / above sea level), Ljubin Grob and Kozji strane (2014 m / above sea level). In the late afternoon we reach Orlovačko Lake (1438 m above sea level) where we plan to spend the night. After a break from our walking tour, we will be accommodated in a mountain lodge on Orlovačko Lake. After lunch we can relax, swim in the lake, enjoy nature and take photos, replenish water supplies at the surrounding springs and cool our tired feet from hiking. We also prepare dinner in nature, followed by an overnight stay under the stars (in tents).
DAY 3: We start the morning in the wild as desired, with coffee or tea. A mountain breakfast follows, and then we go on a tour of Lake Borilovac (1500 m / above sea level), Lake Kotlaničko (1525 m / above sea level), Lake Stirin (1672 m above sea level). After a snack in nature in the afternoon, we will return to Orlovačko Lake, where we will again have a well-deserved rest and prepare lunch and dinner. Then fall asleep in our comfortable tents or mountain lodge.
DAY 4: We start the last day of our hiking adventure with coffee or tea and a delicious mountain breakfast. We pack the equipment and send the food chamber in the direction of the camp, and we continue through Bregoč (2014 m / nv), Javorka, Uglješin vrh (1859 m / nv) where we take a break for lunch. We continue to Gornji Bar (1650 m / above sea level) and reach the lake Donje bare (1550 m / above sea level). There are vehicles waiting for us to return to Camp Highlander, where dinner is scheduled for around 6 pm. With the summing up of impressions, our arrangement ends, and we arrange a new adventure.

A popular proverb says that hospitality implies the warmth of the hearth, delicious food and the right to silence. You can find all this in the rafting camp Highlander, which is located right next to the river Drina. The silence of nature is a common "spice" of each of our meals.
Whether you are just a casual passerby and want to enjoy a beautiful view of the turquoise green river Drina from our terrace, or you are a guest on a full arrangement, be sure that you will enjoy delicious food in our camp. We will serve our local specialties prepared in the old old-fashioned way with a large selection of domestic and foreign drinks.
The ingredients we use are of domestic origin, from our area and with a valid declaration, and bread, pastries, pies and cakes are kneaded, dried and developed by the skilled hands of our cooks. All food is prepared according to traditional recipes, so guests often ask for a little "repeater".
Before going to any activity (rafting, hiking, canyoning, mountain biking, hiking ....) guests are served "Mountain Breakfast", which aims to provide enough strength and energy to overcome any challenge in nature. Upon your return, you will be greeted by hot soup and veal under the sac, and for dinner, barbecue, fish, and chicken with mushrooms or pie under the sac. Always expect a surprise from sweets, but sweet, like sweets made by our mothers and grandmothers. There will be tulumba, urmašica, and baklava, but also fruit and chocolate cakes, as well as good old donuts and pancakes with Euro cream and ice cream. In a word, many deacons for everyone's taste. They say that tastes are different and should not be discussed, but exciting rafting and accommodation in nature are offered by almost all camps on the banks of the Tara and Drina, but we know that the food we make is what makes us very different and why our guests they return.
