An adventure to majestic Mount Trebevic
Take a unique bike tour exploring one of Sarajevo's most potent symbols of perseverance - the infrastructure of the Olympics atop majestic Mount Trebevic.
In 1984, Sarajevo hosted the Winter Olympics. On the snowy peaks of Mount Trebevic, athletes from across the world arrived in their droves to compete as representatives of the greatest sportspeople alive. Seven years later, the Bosnian war tore through the country and city, but much of the infrastructure from this iconic sporting event remains. This is a guided tour telling you the story of a proud chapter in Sarajevo's diverse history.
Beginning next to the cobbled arches of Latin Bridge, the day tour commences with a 10km climb towards Trebevic Mountain. The route you'll ride formed the front line during the war and provides you with a chance to discover a little more about Sarajevo's struggles from 1992 to 1995 - your well-informed guide will pause periodically to explain the history and cultural impact the war had on this city.
At the top of the mountain, park your bike up for a picnic lunch with unparalleled panoramic views over Bosnia and Herzegovina. Refreshed, you'll ride onwards in your mountain adventure, getting the chance to voice your route preferences and even the opportunity to cycle an abandoned bobsleigh track - a truly wicked experience! At the end of your mountain escapades, your bicycle tour will take you back towards Sarajevo, giving you the chance to explore some more of the city before day's end.

Extremely rewarding and fun ride
Perfect mountain bike ride on the doorstep of Sarajevo, Said from Torus Tours was a very friendly, knowledgeable and fun guide who paced the tour really well. It was a long uphill climb but felt like the perfect day on the bike with old friends, even though I was a solo traveller. Views from the top were amazing and the descent was fun. But riding down the bobsled track was the highlight, an incredible experience that you have to try if you visit Sarajevo!!
