Why take a high mountain hiking trip in Bulgaria?.

This is a high mountain hiking trip that mixes sport, adventure and discovery of a country that is culturally very different from the rest of Europe, you will be surprised by its fusion of Slavic customs, Mediterranean and Turkish. The route follows trails within the most emblematic mountain ranges of Bulgaria hiking in Rila and Pirin, with spikes up to 2.925 altitude meters, the highest of all Balkan countries. The environment is of great beauty, green even in summer and the trails are not overcrowded as in other European mountain destinations. You are accompanied by a local Spanish-speaking guide to guide you through the best trails, transfers and help you with the language.

    Good, my name is Guadalupe, I would like to do the trekin described in a group of six people, although I am alone, I don't know if you form groups.
    I miss visiting the northwest area, the visit to the seven lakes.
    Since I am in Bulgaria I would like to see some monastery and cities of interest, I imagine this would run on my own.
    Could you inform me of the trekin dates, please?

      We do not form groups for this trip, They must come already made and then we prepare the trip to suit you and on the dates that the group wishes. The route through the Seven Rila Lakes is not planned on this trip, however as I have commented, you can modify the program and include it…
