Stay in the heart of Sofia before KE's snowshoe adventure takes you through the Rila and Vitosha Natural Parks in Bulgaria.
With its jaw-dropping alpine scenery, dramatic mountains, tasty cuisine, undiscovered trails and larger than life welcome, Bulgaria is a unique destination for a snow-shoeing adventure in the heart of the Balkans. This fantastic holiday takes you through a Narnia landscape as we follow hidden trails through secret forests and up to stunning mountain views. We start in the eclectic capital of Sofia before heading to Bulgaria’s first national park of Vitosha. Here the fun starts as we learn how to snow shoe or brush up techniques. During the holiday we explore this incredible area and experience a secret side to Bulgaria that sees very few tourists.
Next we head to the area of Mount Maliovitsa and follow trails which take us up onto the slopes of this beautiful peak. We’ll enjoy a beautiful walk to the Lake of Fear with breath-taking views towards Mount Musala - the highest peak in Bulgaria. A grand finale is snow-shoeing to the Rila Lakes refuge in the heart of the Rila Mountains where we’ll explore the magical seven lakes and visit the highest waterfall in the Rila Mountains. If you’re looking for a very special snowshoeing destination which is excellent value for money and away from the Alpine crowds, then KE’s Bulgarian Snowshoe Adventure is the perfect choice.
