Vlasenica area, with its geographical position, rich flora and fauna and preserved environment, is suitable for the development of various types of tourism – transit, winter-mountain, rural, hunting and fishing, health. The special features of this area are tall and dense forests. There are 0.70 hectares of forest area per inhabitant (European average is 0.34). These forests are also valuable for the composition and type of trees. In addition to the centuries-old beech trees, fir, maple trees, pine trees and spruce, there are also examples of serbian spruce here. The abundance of forest fruits, especially various types of mushrooms (edible bolete, morel, chanterelle, rose finch, phentermine, etc.) and the distribution of various game (deer, wild boar, bear, wolf, fox, rabbit etc.), and the relative wealth of the fish fund in Studeni and ZeleniJadar, Tišča and Drinjača (trout, gilt, grayling, barbell, sneep, minnow, etc.) also motivate certain categories of tourists to come to this region.
The opportunity for the development of winter tourism is especially provided by the Javor Mountain where, since 1984, there is a winter sports and recreation center “Igrišta”. It is located at the altitude of 1,019 meters, only seven kilometers away from the city, on the main road through which the lines of tourists pass in the winter, whose final destinations are the Olympic mountains of Jahorina and Bjelašnica, about 100 kilometers from Vlasenica. Among the most beautiful natural ambient of this region is the mountain plateau Ružnavoda (about 1,130 m above sea level), which extends along the road to Han Pijesak, today the attractive treasure of citizens of Vlasenica, and because of dense forests (mostly coniferous) green meadows and planks and cold clean water has the characteristics of a real aerial spa. There is also a high concentration of the ozone in the air in this region.
