Highlights

 
     

    The Vitosha Massif is a beautiful collection of peaks that loom over the Bulgarian capital city of Sofia. There is a great deal of exciting activities a person can enjoy in the massif, including walking, hiking, biking, rock climbing, ski touring and snowshoeing, which will be the focus of this trip.

    Participants of this trip should be in good physical condition. Also, because of the large amounts of snow in the Vitosha massif, there can be some tricky parks. Thus the importance of having a qualified guide leading you.

    This trip has a great variety of routes that you can choose from. They are all amazing, and can accommodate people of all skill levels, from beginners to experts. One example is ascending Cherni Vrah (2,290m), the highest mountain in the massif. This route will take approximately 6 hours, and will involve a 500 metre ascent. There is no technical skill required for this route, so it’s perfect for beginners. There is an even easier 4 hour route that starts at the Zlatnite Mostove, also known as the Golden bridges, goes through a forest, and ends at the Kamen Del peak (1,862m).

    There is also the Vistosha Ring Road route. This is the easiest route and allows you to go through the villages of Boyana and Dragalevtsi. And finally there is the Aleko hut route. This is a longer route and allows you to pass through the area of Reznyovete to the village of Zheleznitsa.

    There are even more routes to choose from. And with so many snowshoeing routes available, you will have no problem enjoying the beauty of the Vitosha massif. If you would like to join me, just send me a request, and let me guide you.

    I can also lead you on another Bulgarian snowshoe tour near the town of Bankso.

    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.
