Highlights

 
     

    Bansko is a beautiful, famed ski resort in Bulgaria. Modern and lavish, this place is a gorgeous place to enjoy a winter day. It also rests at the base of the stunning Mount Pirin (2,915m). Along with Mount Pirin, anybody who visits Bansko can also see the Rila mountains and Rhodope mountains.

    On this full day snowshoe tour, I will guide you through the wonderful landscape of Bansko. There are many different options to choose from on this tour. And your choice will be dictated by your skill level, as well as what you wish to see. But you can rest assured that even if you are a beginner you can enjoy this snowshoe tour.

    You will have the choice to take a snowshoe tour through some of the finest places in the Bansko area. The options include an ascent of Mount Bezbog (2,645m), which is perfect for beginners, and gives great views of the surrounding peaks. There is also the option to enjoy a snowshoeing hike to the Vihren hut and the Baykusheva Mura, which is the oldest coniferous tree in the country. Another route will lead you to the Ortsevo village (1,600m), which is highest village in Bulgaria. I can also lead you on a tour through the Rila mountains, where you can enjoy some amazing views. And finally, you can ascend Mount Hvoynati (2,635m), where you will be able to see the highest peak in the Pirin range, the Vihren peak (2,914m).

    As you can see, no matter which route you choose for your full day snowshoe tour, you will get to enjoy some amazing sights that I have no doubt you’ll never forget. All you have to do is send me a request.

    I can also offer you another 1 day Bulgarian snowshoe tour through the Vitosha massif as well.

    About the Guide

     
     

    My name is Lyuben and I'm a Bulgarian Mountain Guide with a ski touring diploma, living in Bulgaria. I have finished the UIMLA training and passed the exams. My hometown Bansko is surrounded by the main mountain ranges of the country - Rila, Pirin and the Rhodope Mountains, where I usually work. It is also not far from Greece where I organize trips regularly. I guide Bulgarian and foreign groups since 2006. The activities I offer are hiking, mountain biking and snowshoeing.

    Personally I like travelling and climbing mountains around the world, ski touring and off-piste skiing. Been to the mountains of Turkey, Macedonia, Kosovo, Greece and Romania. Mont Blanc and Dufourspitze in the Alps, ski tours in Tirol, trekking in Caucasus Mountains and in the mountains around Baikal Lake in Russia. Mount Kazbek in Georgia, Mount Kinabalu on Borneo Island, Mount Rinjani on Lombok Island, Indonesia, trekking in the Ladakh region of India.
