This first stage of the Via Dinarica hiking trail in Bosnia and Herzegovina follows the pilgrim route dedicated to Our Lady of Sinj.
The highlights are magnificent vistas on Busko lake, several archeological spots and the eco-ethno village Grabovica. Besides hiking, this can also be a nice biking route, and there are also possibilities of crossing lakes in kayaks and canoes.
As the border crossing point at Vaganj (pass between Troglav and Kamesnica) is just for locals and is not an international border point, the last stage of the Croatian and first stage of the Bosnian Via Dinarica follows a pilgrim’s trail: the Our Lady of Sinj Route (http://www.stazagospisinjskoj.eu) . This will remain as the main White trail probably until Bosnia and Herzegovina joins the EU and Schengen treaty.
A recommended stop is eco-ethno village Grabovica, in fact a great holiday resort. This first BiH stage of White Trail Via Dinarica will end at locality of Little Gradac, where it will split from the Our Lady of Sinj Route.
Take your time and visit places around the lake. Carmel of St.Elijah and Eco selo Grabovica are good places to take a break for a day.
