On the first day, we will transfer from Sofia to the Malyovitsa area. Once there we will make our way to the Malyovitsa hut, where we will spend the night.
Today we will leave the hut and ascend Mount Malyovitsa before descending down into the valley. From there, we will then drive to the village of Govedartsi, where we will spend the night in a local family owned hotel.
On the final day of the trip we will take a short drive to the Borovets ski resort. Once there we will take the gondola to 2,400 metres before making our way to the summit and skiing down approximately 1,300 metres. Afterwards, we will return to Sofia.

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.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
