Overview

Book
This superb short holiday takes you deep into the wild and wonderful Pirin Mountains of Bulgaria and includes one of the most spectacular ridges in Europe. Rugged and dramatic, the Pirin Mountains have some of the most breath taking and undiscovered mountain scenery in Europe. In true Classic style we start the holiday by heading up Kotelo via the breath-taking and airy Marble Ridge. This incredible ridge is a highlight of the weekend and offers a fantastic introduction to Via Ferrata and is followed by the giant of Vihren. After two jaw-dropping summits we take a cable car up to the Bezbog Hut before ridge-top paths and alpine meadows take us to the peak of Mt. Polejan (2851m). After an exhilarating time in the mountains we visit the fantastically located and decorative Rila Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We round off this fantastic weekend with a final night in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia. With its gold domed cathedral, pavement cafes and laid back atmosphere, Sofia is the perfect city to end the holiday.

    • Fantastic introduction to via ferrata on the jaw-dropping Marble Ridge

A great weekend trip. The walking on day two was challenging but worth the effort. day three was a shorter walk and we were grateful for it. We visited the monastery on day one which meant more traveling. I would have preferred to have a look around Sofia on the day we arrived. The hotel in Bansko and Sofia were very good. The reps were excellent.

Value for money, great scenery, quite a lot of people in the hills ( surprised me) not strenuous, extremely comfortable hotels. Overall a great experience.
