This morning, we ride uphill to Blaževići village, where we pass the local church of St. Luke, the patron saint of horses and animals. We go back to the ranch for lunch.
In the afternoon, we go on horseback to Lake Krenica. The lake is well known by locals thanks to a regional legend. Its deepest point reaches 47meters below water. During the summer months, we might ride bareback so that we can swim in the lake and create great memories. The route that leads to Krenica Lake goes though hay fields and offers amazing views of the surroundings. We might get lucky and see some local wildlife such as rabbits, wild ducks, pheasants or other kinds of birds. Dinner will be served at the ranch with traditional food and drinks.

Day 4 (Tuesday): Ride through Artemisia fields
After breakfast, we starting our ride from the ranch and cross some rivers in order to reach open fields of Artemisia. Cantering through this beautiful aromatic vegetation is a great experience! Lunch will be served in the middle of nature, so we can all enjoy a rest in the shade of the trees. During the afternoon, we make our way back to the ranch, riding along rivers and passing wine yards on our way. We might see a herd of sheep in the fields.  Once back at the ranch, everyone helps taking care of the horses.

Day 5 (Wednesday): Ride to Omerovac Valley
After breakfast, we hop in the saddle and start our ride passing through wine yards, orchards and fields of corn, potatoes and wheat (depending on the time of the year). We then make our way uphill, crossing over Svetigora hill. Today's destination is a peaceful valley called „Omerovac“ and surrounded by 4 hills (Svetigora, Krstina, Ograda & Orlov Kuk). We have a lot of fun riding uphill and downhill and stop for a lovely lunch break in the shade of oak trees. We take our lunch with a local family, owner of the land we just rode through. 
Before getting back on the horses, we can play a game of soccer or take part in other activities such as traditional Herzegovina games. On the ride back to the ranch, we will stop to visit a necropolis of ancient Roman tombstones. This is very interesting because some of stones still have carved symbols.

Day 6 (Thursday): Matica River Ride
In the morning, after breakfast, you will get ready for yet another trail. Today's trail goes along the Matica River. This is a very special riding day as the route we follow was used during Bosnia and Herzegovina's National Endurance Championship in 2010. The river goes through many villages before throwing itself in the Adriatic Sea. We take our lunch in a beautiful spot by the river and take some time to rest.
Dinner will be served back at the ranch, after making our way back home, on horseback.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 7 (Friday): Lake Nuga Ride
Today will be without doubt the highlight of your holiday. After breakfast, we get ready to go on a beautiful ride around Lake Nuga. We will be climbing the hill to get to the entrance of the famous cave called “Ravlića pećina”. After visiting the cave, we make our way to the spring of the Matica River. The area is reknowned for its old watermills that were used to flour grain for bread in the past centuries. Nowadays, some of them are open to visitors. Picnic lunch will be served by the river, and then we go for a short visit to the “Peć Mlini” Park. Finally, we will mount up and ride back to Nuga Lake. From there we will follow a different route that leads to the ranch.
