1. Plovdiv: Central Balkan National Park Guided Hike
Seeing the highest peaks of it and also about half of Bulgaria from above in just a day is an opportunity you shouldn't miss! If that's not enough for you we can add a grand finale to the adventure. If you would like to feel even more weightless and free - there's only one way. Flying. Yes, you can paraglide down from the mountain with your personal professional pilot! The tour starts with pick up from your hotel/accommodation in Plovdiv at 08:00. After an approximately 1-hour drive, we will reach the town of Sopot. From there we will take the chairlift which will shorten the walk to Dobrila mountain hut to around an hour and a half. From the hut (1804m a.s.l.) we will gain some more altitude ultimately getting to Levski peak (2166m a.s.l) - this will take approximately 1 and a half hours. The route does not have any rocky or dangerous parts. However, the route has some amazing views, the one from the peak being definitely the most spectacular. Along the way in both directions, we can use the hut as a rest stop and also for some snacks. After we descend from the mountain, on foot and then with the chairlift or something more exciting (optional is to paraglide your way to the parking), we drive back to Plovdiv. The tour ends with drop-off at your hotel/accommodation.
