Perucica rainforest is hiking adventure in oldest and biggest rainforest in Europe.

Tour Details

Perucica rainforest is old about 20,000 years, what making it the oldest rainforest in Europe.

Rainforest Perucica, or literally old forest, is called forests that have not been influenced by man, forests that have evolved completely naturally since their inception.

The human hand has never had an impact on the birth-life-dying cycle of plants and animals in this rainforest. With its 1400 ha is the bigest rainforest in Europe. In the Perucica are various types of plant vegetation which still not yet been explore. There are a large number of trees around 300 years old. Trees over 50 meters high can be found in the Perucica rainforest, and currently the highest measured is 57.4 meters high. It is covered with various trees such as beech and spruce, some of which are 50 meters long. In the heart of the Perucica is a waterfall Skakavac high 80 meters.

According to scientists at Yale University, Perucica offers a unique study on the role of rainforest in the global carbon cycle, since it is one of the last rainforest in urban Europe, making it the perfect natural laboratory.

Due to its beauty and richness, in 1952 the rainforest was declared a strictly protected part of nature which is used exclusively for scientific and educational purposes, while in 1954 it was placed under state protection as a nature reserve.

One of the last oasis of untouched nature in Europe, is surrounded by imposing mountain peaks in BiH, Maglic, Volujak, Snijeznica, and Zelengora.

What to Expect

The vegetation of Perucica rainforest is very dense, even twice as dense as the famous Amazon.

With our expert guides you will feel safe and get to know the rainforest in the best way. We are one of the few organizations that guide our clients to the heart of the Perucica, to the Skakavac waterfall. Due to the densely intertwined forest and unmarked trails in the rainforest it is strictly forbidden to enter without professional guides. As part of this activity for your confidence, we will take you to the place Prijevor (below the highest mountain in Bosnia and Herzegovina), which offers the most beautiful views of the mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina. These are some of the details that make us different from other organizations.
