1 Day

Are you coming to visit Bulgaria and you want to find a fun activity to do close to Sofia? Then this 1-day snowshoeing to the top of Vitosha mountain is what you’re looking for!

Vitosha mountain is a mountain massif that rises right on the south of Sofia. It’s inside the Vitosha Nature Park which is known as The Biggest Park of Sofia. It’s an easy mountain to access and has a beautiful scenery to enjoy.

There are many activities to do in this massif such as skiing and alpinism, but on this occasion I offer you a different way to get to its summit. Snowshoeing is a great way to explore the mountain in a relaxed and contemplative way.

My plan is to take you to the top of Vitosha – Cherni Vrah (2290 m) in one day. You don’t need any previous experience and you’ll enjoy a pleasant hike among the peace of the mountain, away from the city noise!

I’ll pick you up from your hotel in Sofia and drive to Aleko hut, where we will leave the car and start walking. From here we’ll hike for around 2 hours through an easy slope to reach the top, where we’ll take a break to warm up and rest while you admire the beautiful view. Then we’ll walk down and drive back to the city.


So this snowshoeing adventure is a perfect getaway from the city, to enjoy nature and snow from a different perspective. Send me a request to make it happen!

About the guide

My first touch to the mountain had been at age of 3 with my father. Since then I have been spending valuable time among the mountains - at first in Bulgaria and later across the Alps every summer. At age of 24 I visited rock climbing course and two years later I graduated climbing instructor course. In 2010 I finished my the training for mountain leader and decided to devote my life to sharing this passion called mountain experience.

If you intend to visit Bulgaria to climb trad routes you will find several of them set by myself and my climbing buddies.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
