Pirin Mountains, Bulgaria, 3 Day Guided Hike


A UIMLA Tour Operator in the Top Guides team would like to take you on a 3-day hiking trek through the Pirin mountains of Bulgaria.



3 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct




The Pirin mountains in Bulgaria is a beautiful range that offers a spectacular collection of peaks. The purpose of this 3 day hiking trip will be for you to enjoy a great deal of the range. And because this is a hiking trip, we will be walking and taking our time. Thus allowing you to really take in, admire, and appreciate the gorgeous landscape.

This trek can be arduous at points, so participants should have some previous hiking experience. Also, because we will be walking up to 8 hours in a day, at distances of up to 11 kilometres, participants should also be in good physical condition. However, if you meet that criteria, then this trip will definitely be one to remember.

There is a long list of amazing things you will get to see throughout the 3 day hike in the Pirin mountains. Some of the best highlights include the biggest lake in the mountain range, Popovo Ezero. This lake is a truly stunning sight, and one you will be given time to appreciate. Along with the Popovo lake, you will also get to see the Bezbog lake, the Bunderishki lakes, and the Dark lake. This stunning body of water awaits you once we reach the Tevno Lake hut, where we will be sleeping on the first night.

Along with the beautiful lakes of the Pirin mountains, you will also get to see some amazing peaks, as well. Those peaks include the Tipitsite peaks and the mightiest peak in the range, Mount Vihren (2,914m), which you will get the chance to traverse on the final day of the hike!

Not only is hiking through the Pirin mountains a beautiful experience, it is also an incredibly fun one, too. So if you would like to have a great time, and see some incredible natural landscape, send us a request.

We can also guide you on another Bulgarian 2 day hike through the Rila mountains.
