What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day trek into the Rila Mountains to explore the most picturesque area near Sofia, and one of Bulgaria's most beautiful natural sites, the Seven Rila Lakes. This group of glacial lakes lies between 6,900 and 8,200 feet (2,100 and 2,500 meters) above sea level, surrounded by rugged peaks and deep valleys.

Leaving from Sofia, we will drive for 90 minutes to reach the Panichishte resort area, where we board the chairlift to the Rila Lakes mountain hut. From here we will continue on foot to explore the landscape and its majestic blue pearls – the Eye, the Tear, the Kidney, the Twins, the Trefoil, the Fish Lake and the Lower Lake.

The route is not difficult and can be altered on the spot depending on fitness levels or strength, following either more gentle routes or steeper gradients. Take your chance to explore the Blue Pearls of the Rila Mountains, the Seven Rila Lakes.
