This is a walking tour for people who enjoy hiking amongst nature and want to take a break from the city.


  • Take a break from the noise of the city
  • Walk along the relaxing Pacnahrevo Lake
  • Hike in the beautiful Vitosha Mountain
  • See panoramic views of Sofia from the mountain


Begin your tour at 10:00 AM, meeting your guide at your hotel. First, head to Pancharevo Lake which is about 30- 40-minute drive away from the center of Sofia (depending on the season, it is possible to go first to the mountain). Around the lake, walk and enjoy the beautiful nature, away from the noise of the big city. There are also hiking trails, several park areas with coffee shops, and restaurants available here.  In the afternoon, head to Vitosha which is the first park in Bulgaria and on the Balkan Peninsula. Here, there are many paths from which you can choose to hike and each hike can be adjusted to your preferences (some paths are relatively easily accessible) and usually take between 1 and 2 hours. The main path goes to the natural phenomena 'stone river'. From this area, you will also have the chance to see the beautiful panoramic views of Sofia. In the winter, it is also possible to go up in the mountain if you want to enjoy the snow, but of course the walking will be much more limited because of the winter conditions.
