Rila Mountains & The Seven Rila Lakes

This whole-day trek to the Rila Mountains is is meant for people, who would like to walk in a leisurely pace among its jewels - The Seven Rila Lakes. You will have enough time to get to the highest of all lakes and enjoy the super scenery revealed from there. This is a group of glacial lakes situated between 2100 and 2500 m above sea level, surrounded by rugged peaks and deep valleys. After a transfer of 1,30 hrs we reach the Panichishte resort area, where we board the chairlift to the Rila Lakes mountain hut. From here we continue on foot to explore the cirque and its pearls – the Eye, the Tear, the Kidney, the Twins, the Trefoil, the Fish Lake and the Lower Lake. The route is not difficult and can be altered on the spot depending on how fit you are, following either more gentle routes or steeper gradients. Note that a guided and a self-guided option is available (see below price details).
