While Bulgaria is quickly becoming a more popular winter holiday destination, it remains lower-key than other popular western and northern European hotspots. This makes it a great place to come and connect with nature. Aside from the aforementioned locales, the country is chock-full of excellent snowshoeing destinations, Among these is Central Balkan National Park. Situated about two hours east of Sofia, the park offers plenty of mountain peaks and passes to climb. It is also home to various species of native wildlife. At 2,376 meters in elevation, Bolev Peak is the tallest mountain in the park and a great destination for snowshoers, boasting excellent views of the surroundings. Vrachanski Balkan Nature Park, in the northwest of the country, and the Bulgarka Natural Park, which is near to the national park, also offer excellent snowshoeing opportunities and some fabulous scenery of their own
