Balkan Range



Bulgaria's potential for hiking activities is literally infinite. You will come across some of Europe's finest highland scenery in the Rila, Pirin, Balkan Range, Sredna Gora and Rhodope mountains that harbour spectacular peaks and glacial lakes, forested valleys and stream-side meadows, marvelous gorges and caves, century-old pine, oak, and beech woodlands. They offer a wealth of exploration for hiking and trekking with hundreds of trails and variety of routes. Bulgaria's mountains are also home to incredibly rich wildlife, flora and fauna protected in 3 national and 11 nature parks, and numerous reserves. The main hiking areas are the Pirin, Rila, and Central Balkan national parks, and the western and central Rhodope mountains offering excellent choices for short weekend trekking or a more prolonged hiking. Vitosha's proximity to the capital Sofia, makes it ideal for short trekking.

Hiking in Pirin National Park

Pirin National Park is situated in the highest part of the Pirin mountain range. Its landscape is dominated by alpine granite peaks, with scores of gem-like lakes cupped in mountain basins, caves, waterfalls, majestic abysses and cliffs. This area is a home to two biosphere reserves with unique ecosystems including the ancient Baikusheva white fir and many rare plant species, such as the near extinct Edelweiss.
