Cvrsnica is one of the most beautiful mountains in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and definitely one of the highlights of the Via Dinarica. It hosts the most elevated mountain lodge along the entire Via Dinarica– Mountain hut Vilinac located at 1964 m.

It starts from the Masna Luka church. All bottles should be filled here, as the rest of the mountain is not so rich in water.

The first part of the tour goes through young munika (Pinus heldreichii - endemic species of pine) forest and some beech at the end of the forest belt. Highland landscapes are dominated by alpine scrub and carpets of dwarf-pines (Pinus mugo). User

Turn-by-turn directions

Follow signs over the field until you join the road leading to Masna luka. Spring is on the left side of the parking. 

From the spring follow the trail into the forest. The first crossing will be after the forest, and there you should turn left. The next one will be also left after about 2 h.

After crossing a scree slope and approaching the Great Vilinac, the next turn should be right towards the Great Vilinac, while Little Vilinac remains on the left.

Follow the ridge of Great Vilinac to saddle Prigon. The mountain lodge is a couple hundred meters below on the right.
