Boračko jezero - A view from our expert author
This gorgeous body of water is a great place to take a break from hiking and go whitewater rafting on the Neretva River.
Boračko jezero is a semi-glacial body of water set in the mountains in the central part of the Via Dinarica White Trail. It is an excellent place to rest after the long and challenging stages over Čvrsnica and Prenj mountains. The lake is open to the public for camping, swimming and barbecues, and a few of the locals have opened bed and breakfasts along the shores; there are also campsites. It costs 2KM per person to get into the lake area; the best spot is across the lake by the restaurant where you will find a great freshwater stream and plenty of shade. Swimming in the lake is highly recommended in the summer months. Boračko jezero is also a good place to take a day’s break and go whitewater rafting on the Neretva River. About 5km away, the area between Konjic and the village of Glavetičevo is marked as campsites for the rafting companies that run trips down the Neretva Canyon.
