Itinerary Details

Join this fascinating tour which hikes the Old Tobacco Smuggling Road. The tour will be informative, educating participants on the history of this old practice. Due to its geographical position, Herzegovina is a region where growing tobacco has a long tradition dating back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Tobacco used to be a necessary supplement to the financial economy and it was known as "yellow gold."

Back in the day, tobacco could be grown freely for personal use, but then a tax called "mururija" was enforced and applied to crops sold. Faced with poverty, farmers were forced to learn a new craft called the "peddlery," and began to smuggle tobacco. It was a profitable but dangerous job that required ingenuity and skill to avoid the police.

The tour involves a moderate amount of walking and uneven surfaces.
