South-west Bulgaria is a land of mountains – a rolling sea of independent massifs separated from one another by deep gorges and mountain passes. Most of the towns and villages lie in the valleys or on the lower slopes, leaving the ancient forests, high alpine meadows and rugged rocks for a variety of rare and endangered wildlife to enjoy. These are the Rila Mountains, the highest mountain range in south-east Europe!
Our base is the village of Govedartsi at foot of the Rila Mountains. Our family-run Guest house is the ideal place from which to explore the secrets of Rila.
We walk on snowshoes. On the stretches we don’t need them; we strap them to our backpacks. Walking with snow-shoes requires no previous experience and is easily mastered. It’s great fun and you get a great sense of freedom as we make our own paths through snow covered valleys.
We walk in areas where there is no risk of avalanches. Your guide knows the region well and will take you to the most spectacular places. This is a short winter adventure, but a memorable one!
