Banja Luka is a city known for its friendly people and delicious food. It’s a city with rich history and beautiful nature. From the cold mountain river Vrbas and its canyon to the hills and mountains covered in dense forest. If you’re interested in exploring this city and nature a bit better, we invite you to join us for this forest walk in Banja Luka city.
The forest walk takes us to the peak of the Banj brdo (Banj hill), the picnic area locally known as Šehitluci. Banj brdo is located about 6km from the city center. Due to its location and beautiful nature, this area is one of the most popular locations for locals to visit.
There is an asphalt road that takes you all the way to the top of the hill, but we choose the forest trail because it has many benefits. Besides enjoying beautiful nature and cleaner air, spending time in the forest improves our health immunity and quality of sleep. It also reduces (every day) stress levels. This is more than plenty of reasons for you to join us for this forest walk in Banja Luka.
This forest walk starts at the base of the Banj hill. At the beginning, we have a short walk on the asphalt road and then we take the forest trail. This trail leads us all the way to the Trešnjik picnic area, the Fallen soldier’s monument, and descends to the popular Hot springs. This walking tour lasts around 4-6 hours and we cover around 10-12km. We take short breaks when needed. The walk is easy and requires minimal physical condition. After our walk we will enjoy a home made coffee and if your up for it, we can take a dip in the Hot springs.
On Saturdays and Sundays in the morning hours. We are flexible regarding the departure hours but we suggest starting at 9 or 10 o’clock in the morning.
We meet in the city depending on the address of your stay. Also we can pick you up if needed.
