  1. Day 1 Sofia - Arrival Day
    • Arrival at Sofia International Airport.
    • Depending on the arrival time: City tour of central area OR transfer to the hotel and free time.
    • The city tour usually starts from Alexander Nevski Cathedral (+), then continue with St. Sophia church (o), continue along the Yellow square and with a view to all emblematic buildings around it, to the Presidency (o) and St. George Rotunda (o) and ends with nice walk along Vitoshka Pedestrian street to the National Palace of Culture.
    • Pickup and transfer to the hotel. (trip could be made also after check-in so if hotel is close to the center client can go on foot back to it).
    • Night spent in Sofia (could be also Borovets), in hotel 3* star.
  2. Day 2 Seven Rila Lakes - Hiking Day
    • Early breakfast in your hotel.
    • Pickup from the hotel that will take us to the Panichishte area (100km-1:45h). The tour starts with taking on the cable car to the entrance of Rila National Park and its famous Seven Rila Lakes. (+) The Seven Rila Lakes are without a doubt one of the most notable natural attractions on the Balkan Peninsula, a dream destination not to be missed. Their beauty touches the thousands of Bulgarian and international visitors each year.
      The Seven Rila Lakes, located in the Dangskiya region of the northwestern Rila Mountains, are glacial lakes. They are scattered at the foot of a massive cirque that includes the peaks Suhi Chal (Dry Peak), Otovishki, and Haramiya. The lakes have been named for their shapes and qualities. The highest of them is Tear Lake, which gained its name for its crystal-clear water. It is on 2,535 meters high, directly beneath the Otovishki Peak. The deepest of the seven is Eye Lake at 37.5 meters – its oval and intense blue when the weather is good.
    • The hiking part of the tour starts and ends from the Rila Lakes hut /where cable car ends/ and continue by walking for several hours along the most of the Seven lakes. Be ready for intense walking to reach most beautiful lakes and even the panorama view from the Lake Peak. Wear appropriate shoes and bring along a light jacket/raincoat since weather in the mountain can change swiftly.
    • At the late afternoon departure to Bansko – biggest winter resort in Bulgaria, nested between 3 mountains – Rila, Pirin & Rodopi (130km – 2:30h).
    • Possible enjoying Bansko cuisine in traditional restaurant (we call them “Mehana” in Bulgaria) (additionally charged or self-arranged)
    • Overnight in Bansko, in hotel 3*.
  3. Day 3 Bansko - Cycling Day


    (Cycling, Nature, Adventure)


    • Breakfast in your hotel.
    • Transfer to the bike rental center. Yes, today we will ride bikes.
    • Enjoy a day cycling tour from Bansko all the way (~35km in direction) via the Belitsa Village to Rila Fun Park (downhill railway sledge with max length of 1400m and max speed of up to 40km/h) accompanied by a local guide/s. Stops on the way for rest, enjoying the views or seeing something interesting are included.

    Depending on the time and pace even Dancing Bears Park could be visited (but will leave it as optional for now – against surcharge).

    • At the Rila Fun Park – we will spice the day with 1 downhill per person (+).

    After rest and time for lunch (own expenses), we will head back to Bansko (if the tour is seen as too intense – shorter program could be made or clients could be picked up and make only one way with the bikes.)

    • Overnight in Bansko, in hotel 3*.
  4. Day 4 Sport Day - Horse Riding and Rafting
    • Breakfast
    • Pick-up and transfer to Bachevo Village (or similar) where friendly horses will be waiting for our to ride. Short instructions, maybe trying to get your horses ready by yourself if you wish (or at least be explained how to do it) and then go for the ride itself.
    • Time planned it 2h per person, horses available are around 15. ((if group is bigger than the available number of horses, it will be distributed to 2 horse bases).

    Ride and enjoy the beautiful surrounding of the village: fields, Belizma dam, breathtaking views of the mountains and their forests.

    • At the afternoon – transfer to one of the bases for Rafting & Kayaking on Struma Rivers – in the Kresna Gorge (50km). As guessed here is the place to experience the adrenaline rush going down the river Struma and its rapids. Possible are both Rafting and Kayaking.
    • We will go on a Rafting (for the hardcore ones though, it’s possible to pay some extra to go on Kayaking).
    • The Rafting takes about 3-3:30h. (same for the Kayaking). It starts with instructions, full equipment and then – getting in the water (even literally). The time in the river is about 1:30h for both rafting and kayaking. The total length of the route is about 12km, but it really depends on the time of the year and the water level (after all … safety first). There are boats for 4, 6 and 8 people (depending on availability and group size… or wish to split on teams to have some rivalry…) … Oh, and there is some possible snack (even barbeque type meals) you can purchase on spot… very nice option for when we arrive at the base.
    • Transfer to Sofia (125km – 1:30h)
    • Time to explore the night life with some clubbing. Depending on the calendar some band or famous DJ could be seen (against surcharges).
    • Overnight in hotel 3* in Sofia
  5. Day 5 Departure Day - Culture, Free Time
    • Free time OR possible additional activities against surcharge (will be offered either beforehand, when arrival/departure times are known, or on the spot).
    • Transfer to the Airport for taking all the great memories back home.
