Solo Traveller

Fell in love with the mountains at Jahorina! With added history on top 🙂

My tour wasn’t listed in the drop down, I went on the Skiing tour with Siege of Sarajevo as this was an excellent cherry on top. As a complete newbie to skiing I wanted to go to a country that gave affordable prices and good hospitality! The FunkyTours was my first option this tour gave me the ability to ski that was really good prices and to be lost in the mountains in addition to experiencing the history, the hustle and bustle of Sarajevo at the end! It is a wonderful place to experience, full of culture, coffee, great food and friendly people. My organiser of the trip Ema was so welcoming as well as my skiing instructor Adhan. They were always making sure I was happy and had everything I needed. Adhan my guide gave great detail in terms of the history and the events that took place the siege. I stayed in a lovely hotel in Jahonira & Sarajevo and I felt well and truly cared for and looked after as a solo traveller. Cannot recommend the team more, look forward to seeing them again soon in the summer to enjoy the Bosnian heat in the waterfalls 🙂
