This is my version or my interpretation of the Via Dinaric Green Trail in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It connects many sights and places which probably will be on the official Green Trail, but at the time hiked it, there wasn't much information available. If you're planning to hike this trail, do your research, because there are plenty of options to improve my route.

I tried to connect hiking trails, National Parks, interesting sights, natural and cultural highlights of which I knew they will be part of the official Green Trail. Some parts of the route I hiked can be done by bike as well. I created the route along the way, tried to find the best hikable route, but there are some (makadam) road sections here and there. Also, there are many alternatives, I believe I could hike another month or two or three exploring.

It's an real interesting region. Unlike the White Trail, the Green Trail isn't a mountain trek pur sang. It does lead you through the Dinaric Alps, but through the lower parts. It definetely is Green and absolutely stunning. Lisac and Vlašić are my favorite, LOVE those mountains!

Author’s recommendation

In case you'd like to stay in mountain huts, do call ahead, because they're usually not open unless it's weekend.

Safety information

Note that there are many straydogs in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Especially near Bihać, Una NP and the bigger towns this was not a comfortable situation. I suggest to bring a dazer (NOT a taser!) to keep the dogs away without hurting them.

Equipment

GPS for sure, also as long as there is no official Via Dinarica Green Trail it could be good to use other navigation apps like MAPS.ME and Wikiloc as well to find the most scenic hiking route.
