Rakitnica River is one of the biggest tributary streams of Neretva river. It formed a 26 km long, rugged and painfully beautiful canyon that stretches between Bjelasnica and Visocica Mountains to southeast of Sarajevo.



Rakitnica River Canyon is one of the deepest and most profound gorges in Europe.
It is a natural wonderland. The entire length of the canyon is lined with endemic types of flora and fauna. Bears, wolves, wild boar, pine martens, wild goats all take refuge in this difficult to access canyon. As many as 32 endemic plants, flowers, and trees can be found in this tiny region of the Dinaric Alps. The crystal clear water, fed by the high mountains above, is potable for the whole length of the canyon region.
