Guided mountain walking tours in Bulgaria
Bulgarian mountains are known as the walker’s paradise! Whether you are coming on a guided (escorted) walking holiday or you opt for a self-guided ("inn-to-inn") hiking vacation you will always take advantage on the treking along thousands of kilometres of waymarked trails, offering access to remote and beautiful alpine terrain. Ancient mountain villages, spectacular granite peaks, soft green slopes, cool forests, quick-flowing rivers and crystal-clear blue lakes, mineral springs and bioreserves, rare plants and animals and an intact old world culture are some of the treasures of mountainous Bulgaria.
Bulgaria has 37 mountains: the highest one (being also the highest on the Balkan Peninsula) is Rila Mountains (Mt. Musala - 2 925 m) and the biggest one - Balkan Mountains (appr. 550 km long and 30-60km wide). Each mountain has its own characteristic appearance, fascination and beautiful name.
