Description

When it comes to ski touring in Bulgaria, you can’t do much better than enjoying it on the highest peak in the Balkans Mountain Range: Mount Musala (2,925m). And, on this 3-day adventure, that is exactly what you’ll get to do. Moreover, you’ll get to enjoy it in Bulgaria’s oldest ski resort: Borovets.

Our trip will begin after you arrive at the Sofia Airport. From there, we will take a transfer to the beautiful Borovets ski area, where you will spend the night in a comfortable guesthouse.

On day 2 of the trip, after breakfast, we will take a gondola to an altitude of approximately 2,300 meters. From there, you will get to enjoy 4 hours of fantastic ski touring. The area you will be skiing on have no real technical difficulty and the elevation gain is gradual. After that, we will trek to the top of the Musala Peak, where you can enjoy some amazing views. Afterwards, we will make our way back down to Borovets, where you will be transferred to your guesthouse.

On the final day of the trip, after breakfast, you will get to spend several hours ski touring around the beautiful Borovets skiing area. In the early afternoon, you will then catch a transfer to the Sofia airport, where you can take your flight home. There is also an optional opportunity to visit the Sofia city center as well.

If you love ski touring, then you’ll love this 3-day ski touring adventure at Borovets in Bulgaria. There is nothing quite like enjoying the slopes of a peak like Mount Musala. To join me on this trip, please send a request.

I also offer an 8-day hiking trip through the Thracian Valley, which you can enjoy here.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in the mountains and fell in love with them since I was a little kid. My father was an alpinist and I grew up surrounded by lots of mountaineering books from the family library. I love staying in and moving through a natural environment, no matter if on skis, crampons, bike, climbing or running shoes.

I started guiding in 2016 and I haven't stopped since then. What a great chance to turn my passion into my job! I'm a certified mountain guide in Bulgaria, climbing instructor and ski instructor. I'm working together with a great team of IFMGA and UIMLA certified guides. We work at Climbing and Mountaineering School in Sofia, where we give climbing courses.

We guide in all the Bulgarian mountains and abroad. In summer, we offer rock climbing, trail running and mountaineering tours; in winter, ski touring, freeriding, ice and mix climbing.

I look forward to sharing mountain adventures together!
