Bulgaria: Hiking Activity Holiday
A Country of Superb Variations
With a remarkable 37,000km of well maintained, signposted walking trails, a hiking holiday in Bulgaria is a great way to discover the countryside. Hiking in Bulgaria has a long history, and is a very popular pastime for many Bulgarians. There’s a whole network of mountain huts along many of these walking trails, often in very remote locations, where you can stay overnight for a very small charge, and there are some very good local agencies offering guided hiking holidays in Bulgaria, and detailed walking maps of the most popular areas are widely available. The Rila, Pirin and Rhodopi Mountain ranges are among the main areas for hikers, with rugged and beautiful alpine landscapes, forests, lakes and abundant wildlife. The major trans-European hiking trails E3, E4 and E8 all pass through Bulgaria if you’re looking for a major hiking trip, but there are plenty of short, gentle walking trails for less experienced hikers in Bulgaria too.
