DescriptionThe Seven Rila Lakes are just 1, 30 h away from the capital Sofia, which makes them a perfect day trip. All seven of the lakes have their own name which reflects its typical shape or characteristics. They are situated between 2,100 and 2,500 meters above sea level. In winter, they are frozen over and covered in snow; in summer, once melted, they are a clear emerald green and are great for picnic. The tour starts early in the morning from your hotel.
