Bulgaria boasts an astonishing wealth of majestic trails for the discerning hiker. Walks in Bulgaria explore hugely varied terrain. From gloriously distinct and dramatic mountain ranges and the lowland plains, to the banks of the famous Danube and a 220 mile (354 km) Black Sea coastline, you’ll find almost endless possibilities.

Bulgaria’s three national parks embrace its three main mountain ranges. Cleaving the country in two, the imposing spine of the Balkan Mountains offer spectacular, perched monasteries, crashing waterfalls and days of blissful hiking.

Two alpine ranges grace the south west. Pirin National Park’s coniferous forests and towering, limestone peaks are an awesome adventure. Experience the heart-thumping challenge of its razor-sharp arêtes. Hikes in Bulgaria don’t get much better than those found in Rila National Park, the main draw for many. Discover astonishing glacial lakes of turquoise and tourmaline on your ascent of the hiking peak Musala, which at 9,596 feet (2,925 m), is the highest on the Balkan Peninsula.
