Unique Pirin

 Days 4    Distance 34 km    Ascent 2010 m   Descent 2500 m  Difficulty level 4/5 


This four-day trail is a set of walks that demonstrates the beauty of the Mountains in its varied forms. After setting off through an ancient forest to the highest part of the Pirin, you will traverse the rocky cirques cut by the glaciers many years ago. What makes the experience unique is the astonishing number of the lakes that lie at the funnels of those cirques and the possibility to camp around some of them, as there are built cosy huts. The highest section of the trail that is from the hut Tevno Lake to the hut Vihren is arguably the most beautiful in the whole Mountains.

What to expect:

Four-day hut to hut hike along lakes;
To be leaded by experienced guide (if guided option is chosen);
To spend the nights at warm and cozy huts;
Breakfast and dinner provided by the hut-keepers;

Trip Highlights
  • It is in the heart of the Pirin Mountains through ancient forests, unique combination of lakes and along the main ridge of the mountain;
  • The huts are ones of the best and welcome huts in Bulgaria;
  • The starting / finishing points are easily reached from Sofia and Plovdiv.
Trek Suitability
For those who want to join, should be:
  • Fit and active traveller. Most of the trail is over rocky terrain that makes the hike more challenging. Day 3 is along the main ridge of the mountain with a lot of ups and downs.
  • Ready to spend 3 nights in mountain huts. Each night the accommodation is in a different hut so it is important to pack light. 
  • Walk 4 days (3-7 hours) up to 11 km each day over a stony ground.

Difficulty: It is a trail for advanced hikers. Despite the fact that the whole length and accumulated ascend/descends are not very big, the walk from Day 3 is prolonged and the rocky terrain is tiring..

Accommodation: The huts are well-maintained; the hut-keepers offer food and beverages. Despite this fact, have in mind that these are high mountain huts and the conditions are basic: beds in common rooms in some huts, no hot shower in each hut and shared WC. The huts are frequently visited, so you need to book the beds in advance. 

Transport: 

  • To the starting point: There are 11 km asphalt road that leads to the area of the Gotse Delchev hut from the town of Dobrinishte. You can use a taxi from it or Bansko town. There are buses for groups from Bansko town.
  • From the finishing point: There are buses that connect the town of Bansko with the city of Sofia.

Security: The trail is totally secure. The most part of the trail is along well marked paths. Nevertheless, we recommend using a navigation application on the mobile phone or a real GPS device. The area is served by the mountain rescue teams.
