The tour departs at 7am in the morning- the meeting point is behind Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, next to café La Cathedrale.

The Seven Rila Lakes are just 1, 30 h away from the capital, which makes them a great day trip in nature. From the mountain village of Panichishte, you will take a cable car to the area of the lakes. All seven of them have their own name which reflects its typical shape or characteristics. They are situated between 2,100 and 2,500 meters above sea level. In winter, they are frozen over and covered in snow; in summer, once melted, they are clear emerald green and are great for a picnic. The hiking path is of moderate difficulty and it takes about 4 hours.


Food: it is strongly recommended to bring your own food; but even if you have not, you can buy from a gas station during our break on the way in the morning.

 

In the afternoon you will also travel to the famous Rila Monastery, UNESCO heritage site, where you can admire its amazing frescoes and architecture, while the guide tells you its rich history. The visit to the monastery will be 50-60 minutes.

The expected return at Sofia will be at 7pm.
