Type of Trip
Got a spare day in Sofia? Climb Mussala (2925m), in the Rila mountains. In fact, it’s the highest peak in Bulgaria and the Balkans.
Enjoy the magnificent views of Rila mountains and its lakes. We will meet in Sofia and transfer to the Borovets resort (1:30 hours). Then we will start our hike to the summit of Mussala. The trek goes through some beautiful lakes, then leading to the final rocky ridge of the peak.
The hiking time in total is between 2:30 and 4:30 hours. This will depend on the starting point of the hike (it’s possible to use the gondola).
Do you want to join me for this 1-day hiking tour in the Rila mountains? Then please contact me for more information! It’s the perfect program if you want to discover the mountains in the area but don’t have much time. I guide many hiking trips in Bulgaria, for example this one in Tevno Ezero and the surrounding peaks, in the Pirin mountains, check it out!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the Guide
I guide trekking groups, children’s camps, ascents in the Alps and ski groups in India. I have been traveling many times through the Nepali and Indian Himalayas and the mountains of Europe. I skied up and down Mera Peak, Larkye Peak and Saribung in Nepal, Grossglockner, Dome Des Ecrins and others. I also did numerous first descents in Bulgaria. I particularly enjoy off-piste skiing, climbing, alpinism and trekking. Please get in touch with me if you wish to travel in Bulgaria and live some unique outdoor adventure. It will be my pleasure to guide you here.
