It was a wonderful experience. Magnetic mountain, very beautiful nature and beautiful views.
The first day of the program was quite interesting for us. Shortly before our plane landed in Sofia, there was a very beautiful view of the mountains next to Sofia. It was clearly visible from the plane and looked amazing. Not knowing that this would be the first hiking day of our program. The walk there was easy and very pleasant, I was able to take some nice pictures before we moved on to the next destination.
The accommodation in Govedartsi for the next three nights was great. The food that the hosts prepared was extremely delicious and the feeling of being a guest in their home is very pleasant. We were able to rest well after each hike. The tour around Govedartsi was a very pleasant experience, We were able to enjoy the nature, which was constantly changing. This day served as preparation for the next few days.
On the fourth day we walked to the seven Rila lakes. Extremely beautiful views. Five of the lakes are in the lower part, and for the remaining two we had to go up to the lake summit. There is also an interesting sign with information about each of them. They have quite difficult names. I also managed to take a lot of pictures that day.
During the next day the walk was very interesting. From our program, we chose to climb up to Maljovitsa peak, since we had already explored several of the lakes in the previous days. A challenging route with extremely beautiful scenery. This day was quite long and tiring, but worth every step. For the descent from the top, I recommend using poles.
On the 6th day we had several options in the program. We chose to walk to the Black Rock and from there to Maritsa Hut. The walk was very pleasant because almost all the time we walked along a river. In several places there were built benches and tables for rest. Our host at the hotel told us an interesting story related to the Black Rock, which is part of the national history of Bulgaria.
On the last hiking day, we visited the highest peak in Bulgaria, as well as on the Balkan Peninsula. There were quite a few visitors, and there is great tea at the summit hut. The view from the top is amazing, we were lucky that the weather was clear and sunny and you could see far.
I recommend that on the last day you take the time to visit the Rila Monastery. A very interesting place with a rich history. There were many visitors that day and we were able to hear a random tour guide talking to a group of tourists.
Overall, the program was balanced and very interesting, the trails are well described and signposted. The accommodations are clean and the food was ample and very tasty.

Bulgaria turned out to be quite an interesting destination for hiking. My wife and I were quite pleasantly surprised by the wonderful organization of our holiday. On the very first day, when our guide was waiting for us at Sofia airport and we met the other four people in the group, we received wonderful little gifts.
The first evening in Bansko was more familiar and preparatory for the adventures that await us.
The next day we went to Polezhan Peak, we used a very old chair lift to the highest hut which was quite exciting. In addition to the planned peak, after the agreement of everyone in the group, we also visited Bezbog peak, which is only 30 minutes away.
The next day was very pleasant because we explored several of the many lakes in Pirin. They all have very funny names.
Day four turned out to be quite tiring and challenging, but definitely worth the effort. Vihren Peak is quite famous and is the starting point for other challenging routes. Here our guide showed exceptional professionalism by maintaining an average pace that was perfect for everyone.
The next day is more about traveling and visiting one of the most famous monasteries in the country. We used this day to rest before the big challenge in Rila mountain.
Day six turned out to be just as tiring and long, but the view of all those lakes in the mountains as well as Maliovitsa peak was amazing. It turned out that these 7 famous lakes are quite visited by tourists.
The next day we headed to the highest peak in Bulgaria, which turned out to be much easier to reach than the previous one. Interestingly, there were quite a few visitors and even smaller children on this peak.
We had a wonderful week and met new friends. Our guide Meto was a beauty, I would like to give him a special shout out for his professionalism and good attitude.
We would definitely come again for more adventures.

Fantastic Trip!

This trip was exactly what was needed. It’s a week escape but you get amazing trails, great food, nice challenges, incredible views and so much more. The food in the accommodations was very tasty and interesting. You should also try the Bulgarian red wine. Highly recommended! We felt completely safe in the guide Alex hands. He was able to tell us many details, both about the mountains and about the cultural features of the local traditions. The hotels were great too. A perfect little trip away where everything is taken care of for you! Thank you so much!
A few tips, get enough rest and sleep the night before day four and day six because they are quite long. It is good to buy something sweet or an energy bar from local shops. On day five it is good to carry cash with you. This is a day of rest and travel, but we visited the Rila Monastery, where an entrance fee is required to enter the museum.
Also, on the last day when we returned to Sofia, we booked another night there. We had plenty of time to explore the city and it was well worth it.

Had such a great time on this trip. The group was large (8 people) but everyone was absolutely lovely. A strange but hilarious and memorable experience. It was colder than expected, especially at the top of the mountains, so bring everything on the kit list plus gloves and a hat or buff. Bring cash for coffee/snacks as most places don’t accept card. The views were incredible and the hiking was super enjoyable. I had a great experience and would definitely book with you again! Make sure you have camera, comfy boots and small backpack during the walk.

Everything was far beyond our expectations!
We can start with the transportation service – always on time, always with a clean vehicle, young drivers with good English, some of them pretty entertaining for example George who did the transfer between Rhodope and Pirin. He was constantly joking and turn the long ride into a pleasant part of the adventure! The hotels were from basic to very nice and classy! In fact, we really enjoyed the rural guesthouses, especially the personal care and attention we got from their hosts. The Monastery of Rila is majestic! I am glad that we had one day to explore it (I am saying this because when we booked this I tried to explain the agents that we want to remove this day or exchange it with another hiking day but they convenience me that this is something that has to be seen!) The overall experience was 10/10!

the green and the rocky mountain

This is the brief summary of my experience – Rila is the green paradise of Bulgaria and Pirin is the rocky land of challenges!
I loved both of them and I think about returning someday to see more of their hidden treasures and learn more about the history and culture of the remote country!
See you then!

We spent great week in Bulgaria. The program was very well organised. The only problem was the flight back to Spain. We was waiting long hours at the airport because of flight delate.
