The Pirin is perhaps Bulgaria’s most picturesque and most alpine mountain. The rocky outcrop known for its marble and granite peaks and rich flora and fauna is listed by UNESCO as a world natural heritage site. The Pirin has over 60 peaks rising to over 2500m/8200ft, with the highest, Vihren (2914m/9560ft) the target of one of our treks. The routes transit ridge crests or weave among Cirques dotted with crystal-clear blue glacier lakes and offer an exceptional variety of incredible views.
N.B. Note that this tour has high difficulty and is only meant for people with previous experience in high mountain/Alpine hiking, including tracing rocky slopes, handling rough terrain, passing remains of snow-drifts, possessing adequate reaction in foggy or stormy weather conditions etc. Very good physicial fitness is necessary.
You can extensd your holiday by adding extra walks in Rila, Vitosha or Rhodope mountains. A detour to Rila Monastery (UNESCO) on the way to Pirin (or when traveling back to Sofia) is also possible. Contact us for further details.
