Full description
Experience the stunning landscapes of the Vitosha mountain massif from a different perspective on a snowshoe hike with an English-speaking guide. Get closer to the enormous domes and peaks of one of the most popular winter destinations in Bulgaria. Take up the challenge of walking on snow at a mountain that emerged as a result of volcanic activity. Shaped by the slow folding of granite rock layers and gradual uplifts, Vitosha is now one of the most frequently visited destinations from Sofia. Marvel at the towering peak of Cherni Vrah ("Black Peak") at the highest point of the massif and more.

The tour guid was really nice. Perfectly in time. The hike was great. Beautiful views. The weather wasn’t perfect but we still managed to enjoy and took nice pictures. The agency needs to work on their communication. They do not reach to their customers at all. Even Just to confirm that everything is organized or whom will be the guide.
