The Igman-Malo Polje Mountain Lodge is located on Mount Igman’s Malo Polje, about 30 kilometers from the center of Sarajevo.
At an elevation of 1,246 meters, the lodge is surrounded by conifers and the front terrace offers a wonderful view of Mount Bjelašnica’s peak.
The lodge is run by the Friend of Nature (Prijatelj Prirode) Mountain-Sports Society, which was formed in 1953 by postal and telecommunications workers and they managed to build the lodge on Igman in 1955 by volunteering their own time.
The lodge was totally destroyed during the last war, but was renovated by members of the society between 1998 and 2002.
The lodge has a fireplace lounge, as well as six rooms (with a total of 50 beds) that are available for overnight stays throughout the year, except in January, when they are reserved for winter visits.
Given that it is perfect for a quiet getaway and as a starting point for a mountain hike, the magazine, Start, named the Igman-Malo Polje Mountain Lodge the best lodge of this kind in BiH in 2007.
