DescriptionMount Vitosha, the oldest Nature Park on the Balkan Peninsula, is considered to be the cradle of Bulgarian tourism. As the most frequently visited Bulgarian mountain, it fascinates thousands of tourists with its alpine scenery, nature reserves, and breathtaking rock formations. Our hiking trek takes you on a loop trail, starting from Aleko Hut and going as high as Cherni Vrah summit (2290m), then descending along a different path back to Aleko Hut. Starting from appr. 1750m. above sea level we first traverse the foot of Golyam Rezen Peak and Malak Rezen Peak. This stage is particularly scenic with constant views towards the capital Sofia, the Balkan Mountains, and the highest summits of the Rila Mountains far in the distance. Eventually, we arrive at Cherni Vrah Peak (2290m), where we will have a well-deserved rest. When descending down we will pass through the Torfeno Branishte (The Peat) Reserve, eventually arriving back to Aleko Hut. Take in some of the most majestic nature in Bulgaria, just a short trip from Sofia. The local tour operator, Traventuria, was awarded a “Business Which Supports Biodiversity” certification by the Bulgarian Biodiversity Foundation for its “Tours with a Cause” initiative.
