Description

Get ready for an unforgettable ski touring adventure in Bulgaria. For three days, I’ll take you to two iconic places, Musala and Borovets in the Rila National Park for a wonderful experience. Join me!

On this exciting ski touring adventure, we’ll explore Musala, the Balkans’ highest mountain. At an altitude of 2,925 meters, this stunning peak offers views of every mountain range in Bulgaria. We’ll also visit Borovets, Bulgaria’s oldest ski resort. Furthermore, Borovets is also home to The Rila Monastery, and features several spots for different outdoor sports.

We’ll meet at the Sofia Airport on the first day and transfer to a family guesthouse in Borovets for the night. Then, on the second day, we’ll take the gondola to ski tour and reach the summit of Musala. We’ll ski down to Borovets. Finally, on the third day, we’ll ski for half of the day around the resort and then transfer to the airport.

So, what are you waiting for? Send your request and prepare yourself for a unique winter experience. I would love to be your guide.

Didn’t end up making it in the end due to high avalanche risk but we want as far as we could and the views were spectacular! The guide always had my safety first and reminded me the mountain isn’t going anywhere. Will return to get to the top next time for sure!
