Seven Rila Lakes
If you’re looking for a holiday where you can enjoy decent length days out on the hill, look forward to a shower and a comfy bed each night, keep the costs down and not have to travel too far then this will tick all the boxes.
Bulgaria, a fascinating country where east meets west, is home to some beautiful mountains which are easily accessible from the capital, Sofia. We ascend through beech and pine forests, juniper and dwarf pine to reach the upper alpine zones of both the Rila and the Pirin ranges, studded with lakes of all sizes.
Mountain huts provide welcome refreshments for the thirsty walker along the way and the views are truly breath taking. With short transfers and some chairlifts, we are able to get high into the mountains each day, bag a few summits and return to a hotel in the valley each night. The rural hotels are known for their wonderful hospitality, traditional food, folklore and music.
We also have the chance to explore the Seven Lakes of Rila, Bulgaria’s most famous landmark, along with the beautiful Rila Monastery.
