We are a local backcountry guide tour operator covering mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the winter months. Bosnia is notorious for its long and snow packed winters due to the collision of Mediterranean and Continental climates right above its mountains, providing for fresh powder most of the season which runs from early November to late April.
Our range focuses mainly on the Bjelasnica, Visocica and Prenj, also known to us as Triton triangle range, while customized tours are organized for Jahorina, Cvrsnica and numerous other Bosnian tops. Tours are operated on a daily and multiday basis. For multiple day tours, the mountains all offer sleeping huts along the way providing for a rather unforgettable experience of Bosnian nature.
A few words about the Triton triangle range…
Bjelasnica was host of the Olympic ’84 men’s alpine disciplines and that period really brought about the development of this range along with the smaller Igman which was the host of the Ski-jumping competitions. Although mountain is still used for alpine races, its true nature can be seen in beautiful backcountry terrain which is accessible all season round.
Visocica is the second of the Triland’s destinations and is a true backcountry paradise. Only about 25 minutes from Bjelasnica the only way up this gem of the Balkans is by touring. The mountain offers numerous bowls, couloirs, spines and tree lines. It is also a great destination in summer months, when the local villages are buzzing with life and many bikers and hikers can be seen.
Prenj Mountain is also known as the Himalayas of Bosnia and Herzegovina and requires some minimum alpine skills to really enjoy the thrills of this mountain. Triton provides basic courses to prepare you for this kind of climbs ahead of the hike, when necessary. This is the mountain made for mountaineering, a combination of alpinism and freeriding, requiring you to complete a number of technical climbs which put you in a position for some of the longest couloirs and descents that Bosnia has to offer.
With growth of tourism in Bosnia and Herzegovina the creation of backcountry tour operator was a natural progression in a development of our services. One key advantage of skiing powder in Bosnia is that the powder crazy crowds are still not flocking here in numbers, making this one of the few places in the world where powder can be found with ease. With our experienced guides who have been exploring these terrains for over a decade and the sheer scale of the available terrain, you are bound to be in the right place at the right time during your stay here.
Our name Triton is derived from a rare endemic species of Salamander (Salamandra atra Prenjesis) which only inhabits the mountain of Prenj. In a way we are some of the few who do the same in this mountain range..
