Die Rakitnica ist ein Fluss im Zentrum von Bosnien und Herzegowina. Sie entspringt oberhalb des gleichnamigen Dorfes Rakitnica im Treskavica-Gebirge. Kurz nach dem Ort Šabići beginnt der rund 24 km lange und bis zu 800 m tiefe Rakitnica Canyon. Die Schlucht trennt die Bergmassive von Bjelašnica im Norden und Visočica im Süden voneinander.
