Do you like sports and the outdoors? Do you want to see some incredible views? If so, this is the perfect activity for you. Enjoy a day hiking through the National Park of the Seven Lakes in Rila.
We start a lovely day by heading some 120 kilometres to Rila National Park. Arriving at Panichiste, we then catch a chairlift to the top of the mountain.
Accompanied by an expert guide, we will follow a 5-hour trek, where you will discover a stunning area in Rila.
Once at the top, we will explore the seven lakes in detail. Situated at an altitude of between 2,000 and 2,500 metres, we will climb to the highest point for a bird's eye view and so you can take some impressive photos. Each lake is named after its most striking feature, such as The Tear, The Eye, The Twin and The Fish Lake.
When the trek has finished we will return to your hotels in Sofia.
