The Hedona Wine Club is the first boutique winery in Sarajevo, surrounded by the vineyard at an altitude of 850m.

Day 3 – Tuesday (5-6 hours riding, swamp boat tour)

Today we begin our adventure through the wine regions of Herzegovina, the sunny south of the country. Waking up early with breakfast we head south by vehicle where our horses are already waiting for us, safely brought by our reliable stableman Zijo.

We spend our first riding day in Herzegovina in a nature park called Hutovo Blato, which is a natural reserve for birds and a well-known ornithological site. We ride throughout the day on the lowlands, but we also ascend the nearby hills for a stunning view of the wetlands. At the chosen place, we make a camp with an afternoon rest and a picnic, after which we take a short ride in an electric boat and enjoy the silence of Deranje Lake.

Afternoon riding takes us to our first overnight stay, a small hotel with a restaurant famous for its river fish delicacies on the shore of the lake. After a short rest, we head to the first winery, Domano. The winery is known for red wine of the Blatina variety, and their slogan is “wine with deep roots”, because it is known that wines have been produced in Herzegovina since the time of the Illyrians. Along with selected varieties of blatina, we enjoy homemade culinary delicacies.


Accomodation (TBD)

Day 4 – Wednesday (4 hours riding, canoe safari)

Wednesday is reserved to enjoy in what many consider the most beautiful river in Herzegovina, the marvelous Trebižat. After a hearty breakfast and a 40-minute drive, we arrive at the starting position of our today’s riding tour. We ride along the coast of green Trebižat and at convenient locations we also enjoy riding through a shallow river and offer refreshments to our four-legged friends.

We take a lunch break in one of the restaurants at the numerous waterfalls, where after a well-deserved rest we set off on an adventure, but this time off the saddle, a kayak adventure. Tired but satisfied after enjoying the water, we settle in the nearby Family Farm stay and choose one of the 6 wineries in the nearby town of Ljubuški. The city is known for its large concentration of wineries, and at the guests’ request, we choose one host where we will enjoy a tasting of wine, cheese, and local products.

Again, the widely known Blatina is on the wine menu, and for white wine lovers, the best local variety of žilavka is grown in this area.


Accomodation (TBD)

Day 5 – Thursday (4 hours riding, wild horses watching)

Today is a special riding day, after a 2-hour drive, we arrive at the foot of the Cincar mountain where we expect to ride next to numerous herds of wild horses. It is estimated that their number has already reached 1,000 horses. The surreal areas of the plateau known as Krug Mountain invite us to take a leisurely canter, and on the nearby glade, from which we have the opportunity to watch wild horses, we will set up camp and enjoy moments of watching the horses, their behavior in the herd, and take unforgettable photos from this trip. The horses curiously approach the camp because they are used to receiving salt and food from visitors. After an unforgettable experience, we settle in a nearby hotel and prepare for a new tasting of wine and the inevitable Livanja cheese, which is considered the best cheese in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Livno is home to many wineries, we decided on an organic wine producer, the Knebu winery, which many say is a real sensation in the world of wine, located at an altitude of 950 meters, which ranks it among the highest in the world. Dramatic weather extremes at high altitudes cause sudden and powerful reactions in the vines, releasing energy bursting with charge. The high altitude contributes to the intense taste and aroma of grapes due to significant differences between day and night temperatures. The wine varieties Knebu winery is proud of are Chardonnay and Traminac.


Accomodation (TBD)

Day 6 – Friday (5 hours riding)

Spectacular Blidinje is on the menu today, a wild mountain plateau that offers dozens of kilometers of flat areas that invite us to canter and gallop along with the beautiful Blidinje Lake. Blidinje is also the place where the charismatic and widely known Hajdučke Vrleti (Haiduk’s crags) restaurant is located, where we may relax and enjoy local food and wine.

After a whole day of riding, we put our horses in the horse truck and head to our home away frome, the LazyHorse Equestrian Center.

Of course, we thought of this final evening during the horseback riding tour, and we brought with us a selected bottle of wine from each winery, and at our stable “gala dinner” we once again could taste the best that we had the opportunity to taste on our horseback wine adventure.
