Ljubuški Outdoor Festival as a concept is a set of sports and recreational activities that will connect and revitalize the scattered cultural, historical and natural heritage along the competition routes. Paragliding competition, running, cycling and trail routes are connected by the river Trebizat, which in addition to its hydrological potential also has two natural pearls: Kravica and Kocusa waterfalls. The route also connects national cultural monuments, the Roman military camp in Gracine and the fortress of Herceg Stjepan Kosaca, which represent the special richness of this festival. Through a series of lectures, the festival will promote a sporty and healthy lifestyle in the natural environment. Also, all associations involved in outdoor sports and recreational activities will have the opportunity to present their activities during the festival at Kravica Waterfall. This innovative and unique event in BiH will certainly be a significant stimulus for the development and promotion of active destination tourism in the Ljubuski area, as well as in other areas in the region for the development of similar activities.
Public company Parkovi Ljubuški d.o.o. and associations: Cycling Club Ljubuški, Paragliding Club Ljubuški, Croatian Athletic Club Ljubuški, GSS station Ljubuški and Photo Club Focus are the organizers and implementers of the event Ljubuški Outdoor Festival with the support of the City of Ljubuški and the Federal Ministry of Environment and Tourism BiH.
