Discover More About Bulgaria

Walk through alpine meadows and forests, past glacial lakes onto spectacular ridges and summits including Vihren (2,914 metres) and Musala (2,925 metres), the highest mountain in Bulgaria. On our challenging 'Rila & Pirin Mountain Trek’ you’ll ascend these two summits and enjoy fine ridge walks in the company of a professional English-speaking guide.

Our walking holidays to Bulgaria involve challenging and mountainous terrain, with mostly good conditions underfoot and altitudes of up to 2,925 metres. They are therefore suitable for regular mountain walkers seeking a real adventure.

Accommodation includes comfortable three star hotels with en suite facilities and one night in a mountain hut.

The best time of year to visit Bulgaria is from June to September in order to benefit from plentiful sunshine and warm temperatures.
