Rila mountains

The Rila mountains have always held a special place in Bulgarian culture. They nurture the highest peak in Bulgaria vrah Musala 2,925m. They are also home to Bulgarians' favourite monastery, the Rilski monastery which is a place of pilgrimage.

The Rila mountain is impressive by the height of its peaks as well as the beauty of its nature. The Seven lakes are regularly frequented by hikers and pilgrims. The fauna and flora includes many indigenous species some which are endangered. With a bit of luck you can see eagles, wild boars, brown bears.

The Rila mountains are also the birthplace of important rivers that feed Bulgaria: the Maritsa that flows through the ancient city of Plovdiv, the Iskar that flows north to the Danube and the Mesta that runs its course towards the Aegean sea. These rivers have been part of the history and legends dating back to Thracian times.

We organise 4 day horse riding trek to the Seven Lakes. It is a journey that you will always remember with its breathtaking views and unspoilt nature. On horseback you will follow the steps of many a traveller and pilgrim from past centuries.
