Highlights

 
     

    Like the Rila mountains, the Rhodopes, or the Balkans, the Pirin mountains are an amazing collection of peaks within Bulgaria. And it is my goal on this 3 day ski touring adventure that you get to explore a large portion of this magnificent mountain range.

    Every day of this trip, you will have the chance to enjoy a thrilling descent down a different mountain. The first peak is Mount Polezan (2,851m), which will give you the chance to enjoy a descent of 1,200 metres, or possibly more if the weather is agreeable. The next day, there is the Hvoynati peak (2,635m), which we will descent all the way back down to Bansko. From the mountain, you will also be granted a spectacular view of the tallest mountain in the Pirin range: Mount Vihren (2,914m). Finally, the last peak you will get to ski down on this trip is the remote Dautov peak (2,597m). This peak, like the two before it, will give you the chance the enjoy a long, exciting descent.

    Along with the exciting descents, you will get to see some beautiful natural scenery. Some of the highlights of that scenery include the Muratovo lake and the Demyanitsa valley, along with much more. Finally, you will have the chance to see, explore, and spend 2 nights in a hotel in the famed Bulgarian ski resort of Bansko. This lovely place is the largest, most modern ski resort in the whole country, and definitely lives up to its prestigious reputation.

    This 3 day adventure is a must for anybody who loves ski touring and finds themselves in Bulgaria. So if you are in good physical condition, have some previous skiing experience, and want to enjoy the Pirin mountains, just send me a request.

    I also offer a 3 day ski tour through the equally impressive Rila mountains 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.
