About the guide

guide profile img

I've been lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel a lot, most of all in my country and the surrounding ones, but travel has been part of my life since forever. It started as my hobby and a preferred way to spend my holidays which, with the time, naturally evolved into being part of my professional career.

Bulgaria has 2 alpine Mountains which are not the largest in the World, but offer great deal for Mountaineering. Having 4 seasons, I'm able to practice both rock & ice climbing as well as Ski touring and snowshoeing.

I started guiding 7 years ago and, for the moment, I work with foreign people travelling in Bulgaria and the Balkan Peninsula. I guide hiking, scrambling, climbing and mountain biking tours and I work in a cooperation with a few Bulgarian colleagues of mine.
