~ About the area ~

The valley of Malyovitsa is situated in the northwest parts of Rila Mountains – easily accessible from the capital Sofia, it is a good weekend, or even a day, destination. About an hour and a half drive via the town of Samokov and village of Govedartsi takes you at 1730 m. elevation where a small ski area is placed. There are a few ski runs and one of them is proud with, as the legends say, “the oldest drag lift on the Balkans” still operating – which makes it a marginal place for piste skiing. But the reason for most of the people to come here is higher up – where you enter the area of Rila National Park, the valley gets narrower and surrounded by an impressive peaks.

About an hour away from the ski center and above the tree line is located Malyovitsa hut – the main base for hikers, climbers and skiers in this area. Dominating the view is mount Malyovitsa (2729 m.) – with its vertical north wall it it considered as a symbol of the Bulgarian alpinism. Not seen from the valley but not less impressive are the other high peaks in the area, including the highest – Golyam Kupen (2731 m.) The main hiking route goes to the top of Malyovitsa (average 2,5-3 hours up).

To meet your adventure needs and desires we offer several itineraries from which you can choose. You don’t need special skills for snowshoeing. It is essentially hiking in the snow supported by special equipment to help you move more efficiently.

One of the first things you notice when you visit Sofia is the majestic Vitosha mountain looking over the city. With the highest peak of 2290m, mount Cherni Vrah (Black Peak) makes Vitosha the 4th highest mountain in Bulgaria. With a relatively easy access thanks to a gondola lift and a few roads, Vitosha is visited by thousands of people each year. However don’t be fooled by the proximity to the capital, the mountain is famous for its strong winds and rapidly changing weather, so proper equipment, and experience is a must especially during the winter.

Explore the impressive winter landscapes of Vitosha – one of the most accessible mountains in the world.

~ Possible Itineraries ~
• An ascent of the highest peak: Mount Cherni Vruh (2290 m): this route starts from Aleko Hut at 1810 m above the sea. The hut is accessible by asphalt road and by the Simeonovo gondola lift. The ascent is generally smooth, with panoramas towards the Balkan Mountains, and finally, towards Rila Mountains to the south. The walk takes about 6h in total, with 500m of vertical ascent and descent. It is suitable for novices, without previous experience in snowshoeing or hiking given they are using adequate equipment (described in “What to bring”).
• Konyarnika Locality – Mount Cherni Vruh: this is not a circular walk but one that follows the highest parts of the mountain. The starting point near Konyarnika is located at around 1700m and accessible by car. We start ascending and follow a ridge with spectacular panoramas towards Rila Mountains and the lower mountains located west of Sofia. We climb the peak for about 3 hours with 600m of vertical gain. Descent to Aleko Hut and further down to Sofia.
• Aleko Hut – Reznyovete Area – Zheleznitsa Village: this route is not short, but the ascent is very little. We start from Aleko Hut and follow an almost flat terrain below the impressive Reznyovete Peaks, on the edge of the forest and above Bistrishko Branishte Reserve. Descent to Akademika Hut and further to the village of Zheleznitsa. Total time of the tour: about 5h, +200/-850m.

Tired of the resort vibe of Bansko? Want some peace and quiet exploring the remote parts of the mountain? Join us on a snowshoeing trip in the area. You can choose among three of the most amazing mountains in Bulgaria – Rila, Pirin and Rhodope, all situated not more than an hour from the resort.

While Pirin with its alpine-like appearance and steep slopes rising up to 2914 meters offers wild views, the south sides of Rila are more gentle and easy for snowshoeing. Rhodopes are one of a kind located between the higher mountains, which provides great panoramas to both Rila and Pirin. The old villages, where people maintain the same lifestyle from 100 years ago, can be a truly unique experience worth having.

~ Possible Itineraries ~
• Ascent of Mount Bezbog | Pirin Mountains: We will drive from Bansko to Dobrinishte (40 min) and then get on the chair lift which will bring us 2140m above sea level. It takes about 2 hours to reach Bezbog while gaining +400m of vertical elevation. The route is possible even if the snow conditions in the lower parts of the mountains are not so good. The views from the top of the mountain are spectacular and include most of the Pirin Peaks as well as Rila and Rhodope Mountains.
• Around Ortsevo Village | Rhodope Mountains: many claim that this is the highest village in Bulgaria, located at around 1600 m above the sea. Apart from being an isolated area, not popular among the tourists, the village offers dramatic views towards Pirin Mountains. The trek is easy, up to +300m of elevation gain. About 1 hour drive from Bansko.
• Vihren Hut and Baykusheva Mura: We start from the ski area of Bansko and pass by the oldest tree in the mountains of Bulgaria – Baykusheva Mura – a 1300 years old conifer. We then continue upwards to Vihren Hut situated at 1950m.
• Semkovo | Rila Mountains: Semkovo is a small ski resort located at about 1600m. With around +800 m of ascent through the beautiful conifer forests we will reach the main ridge of Rila Mountains and enjoy the great views of the highest mountain range on the Balkans. The place is about 1 hour drive from Bansko and the trip may include a visit to the Bears Sanctuary in Belitsa village.
• Ascent of Mount Hvoynati | Pirin Mountains: this trek is challenging as it has +1000m of elevation gain and goes through the valley of Bunderitsa and further up towards the peak. The participants in this adventure will be rewarded with magnificent views of Mount Vihren and the rest of Pirin Mountains.
