Trekking in Bulgaria has long been one of Europe's best kept secrets. On our challenging "Summits and Ridges of the Rila and Pirin" you'll ascend the two highest summits in the Balkans, Musala (2925m) and Vihren (2914m) and enjoy fine ridge walks too in the company of a professional English-speaking guide.

Bulgaria contains some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in Europe, especially in the Rila and Pirin ranges. An extensive system of hiking trails makes it easy for walkers to enjoy stunning varied landscapes. Walk through alpine meadows and forests, past glacial lakes onto spectacular ridges and summits including Vihren and Musala, the highest mountain in Bulgaria.

"The Bulgaria trek takes you into wonderful remote mountains in a fascinating and friendly country." David Eaude, Summits and Ridges

Our walking holiday to Bulgaria involves challenging and mountainous terrain, with mostly good conditions underfoot and altitudes of up to 2925m. It is therefore suitable for regular mountain walkers seeking a real adventure. Accommodation includes comfortable 3* hotels with en-suite facilities and one night in a mountain hut.

The best time of year to visit Bulgaria is from June to September in order to benefit from lots of sunshine and warm temperatures.
