Transsbalkan trek

The Central Balkan National Park is one of the most popular hiking destinations in Bulgaria. The name of Stara Planina mountains (“Balkan”) comes from the ancient history of our land. It is not surprising that the whole peninsula is named after the mountains. Despite the severe climate, the inaccessible gorges and the awesome valleys it has given shelter to people since ancient times, during the Thracian and Roman days, up to the present. [More]

This trek takes place in the two mountain chains which contain the Balkan Peninsula’s highest peaks housing vast national parks, rare vegetation and rich animal life. The trip is structured to take the participants to remote regions with beautiful and unspoiled natural landscapes. If you do not have the time for extensive trekking in the world’s biggest mountain ranges, this tour is strongly recommended. Here you can enjoy the physical challenge of alpine landscapes above the tree border, as well as the cultural treasures of Bulgaria and the warm hospitality of the local people. [More]

This tour is a lighter edition of the Pirin-Rila trek, which combines the high and challenging Pirin Mountain’s beauty with the serenity of the Rodopi Mountains. During the trek, you explore some of Bulgaria’s remote and forgotten regions. Mountain border villages, which in the near past had been closed for foreign visitors, enable the tourists to experience a part of the original Bulgarian culture and life in the countryside. Throughout the tour we also visit caves and the 2nd biggest Bulgarian Monastery. [More]
