On this tour you will be walking on South East Europe’s highest mountain ranges – Rila and Pirin. Not only is the altitude spectacular, but both ranges are National Parks, rich in flora and fauna. For example in July-August you might even come across Edelweiss in the Pirin Mountains!

Our first hikes are in Rila Mountains. Here we attempt to climb the highest peak – Mt.Mussala (2925m). On the following days we discover the lovely Malyovitsa valley and Rila’s sacred Seven Lakes - Bulgaria’s most magnificent mountain landscapes.


Making our way from one mountain range to the other, we stop en route to see the great Rila Monastery. Its architecture, art, history and setting are all stunning and a visit here is a must.   

Towards the end of the tour we explore the alpine Pirin Mountains. We climb the highest peak – Vihren (2914m) with its marble pyramid. The range is known for its numerous plant species, among which is Edelweiss.

Back in Sofia we make a sightseeing walk to see the capital’s cultural highlights including of course the Alexander Nevski Cathedral.
