Rila – Pirin Trek Classic (hut-to-hut, guided)


Rila – Pirin Trek Classic (hut-to-hut, guided)

Rila, the highest mountain in the Balkans, and Pirin, the most beautiful one, in a one-week trek along their alpine ridges.

An abundance of crystal lakes and marble mounts, generous vistas and, in addition, the Rila Monastery, hidden in the midst of a pinewood forest.

The difference from the other Rila-Pirin route that we offer is that this one crosses the heart of the mountain without descending to the foot. This, however, involves overnights in cruder conditions.

Tour Higlights:
Rila National Park, and Musala, the highest summit in the Balkans
♦ Pirin National Park, an area protected by UNESCO as part of the world natural and cultural heritage
Rila Monastery, established in the 10th Century and on the UNESCO World Heritage List
