Hiking to the Seven Rila Lakes

Sofia, Bulgaria

Experiență organizată de Svetoslav

  1. 10,5 ore
  2. Organizată în Engleză

Ce vei face

Our meeting point will be behind Aleksander Nevski Cathedral, in front of "La Cattedrale restaurant". The departure is at 07:00 o'clock.
We'll drive to the Panichishte Resort chair lift which takes us to the Seven Rila Lakes Cirque.
Then we start exploring them one by one. Each lake is named after its most characteristic feature. The highest one (at 2500m above sea level) is called Salzata "The Tear", from where we have a bird’s eye view over all seven lakes, as well as surrounding outcrops and deep valleys; the next one in height carries the name Okoto "The Eye" after its oval form; Babreka "The Kidney" is the lake with the steepest shores of the entire group; Bliznaka "The Twin" is the largest of all; Trilistnika "The Trefoil" has an irregular shape; the shallowest lake is Ribnoto Ezero "The Fish Lake" and the lowest one is Dolnoto Ezero "The Lower Lake" (2100m above sea level), where the water that flows out of the other lakes is gathered to form the source of Dzherman River.
Once you visit the last lake, we'll return to the upper station of the chair lift, ride it, and head back to Sofia with our minivan. You'll be dropped off at the starting location.
Other things to note
Be physically prepared for this hike. Depending on the month that you book, you might need winter clothes. Hiking boots are a must!

Hi there! I'm Svetoslav from Traventuria. I'm passionate about showing the best that Bulgaria has to offer in various 1-day tours to cultural, historical and nature locations. On this tour, either I, Peter or Radi will be your certified mountain guides for the day. The three of us have vast knowledge, experience and you'll see for yourself one of the best hiking locations of Bulgaria.

Unde vei fi

The 7 Rila Lakes is one of the most admired and popular hiking destinations on the territory of the Rila National Park. What makes this area so desired are the fabulous sceneries, worth every step and breath along the moderately difficult walk to the highest lake.

Great communication before the trip, and comfortable transportation. I opted to hike with the guide, not because it’s needed for directions, but because I enjoy hearing the history, stories, and local perspectives. Glad I did. Radi was outstanding, full of facts and stories, and open to discussions about anything. It was the next to last day of the seasonal lift, and we were incredibly lucky to have perfect weather! Just a little ice and snow at the top. Everyone asks about the difficulty. Everyone is different, but I think it’s fair to say it is”moderate”. If you are in reasonably good shape and are accustomed to at least occasional hiking, you’ll be fine. That said, it’s not “easy” and is good cardio. Just take your time and enjoy the sublime views!

Excellente randonnée, notre guide était vraiment très sympa. Nous avons passés une très bonne journée sous le soleil et un paysage à couper le souffle. En revanche, il est conseillé d'être bien préparé physiquement (cardio) pour monter à 2600m d'altitude et d'avoir de bonne chaussures de randonnée et des vêtements chauds 😉

Defenitley reccomend this hike! Beautiful setting and the guide we had was super friendly and talked to us the whole time. The hike was hard but good and the view at the top was extremely rewarding. This was a great activity for us to fill our day and we met heaps of friendly new people!

I highly recommend this experience! The Seven Rila Lakes are absolutely stunning and breathtaking. One thing to note is that this is a part of a group tour, about 8-10 people. Also it’s important to remember to bring lunch, water and snacks.

The hike was great. If you’re not used to the altitude it can make it a little difficult. Our guide was great. I would recommend not going on a weekend if you want to avoid large crowds.
