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. Your professional guide will take you by car to The Panichishte Resort cable car which takes you to the Seven Rila Lakes Cirque. The hike takes around 3 h. If you wish to make your walk harder or easier your guide will be able to adjust the group program accordingly.
