Description

Famous for its stunning peaks, the Balkan Peninsula is full of great mountains that enthusiastic climbers can scale. And, on this 8-day adventure I would like to guide you to the summits of several of those amazing peaks.

Our trip will begin after you’ve been picked up in the Sofia Airport. From there, we will go to the village of Govedartsi, where we will spend the night. After that, the climbing will begin. Our first peak will be Musala (2,925m), which is the highest peak not only in Bulgaria, but also in the Balkan Mountain Range. The next peak on the next day will be Polejan (2,851m). On the fourth day we will climb to the summit of the highest peak in the Pirin Mountains: Mount Vihren (2,914m).

For day 5, we will go to Prionia, where we will spend the night in the lovely Kakalos Hut (2,650m), and on the following day, we will make our way to the summit of the highest peak in the Olympic Mountains: Myticas (2,917m), which is also known as Mount Olympus. Finally, on the final 2 days of the trip, we will return to Sofia, where you can explore the amazing city, including a visit to the famed Rila Monastery and the Stob Pyramids.

During this trip, you will not only get to climb several amazing peaks, but you will get to explore some of the best spots in Bulgaria. To join me on this adventure, please send a request.

Pavel’s colleague Vanja was our guide. She was a super nice person with excellent English who also speaks several other languages. Vanja was calm and very helpful when we got into one difficult situation. I Highly recommend her.
