Join us in this panoramic hike to Vitosha’s highest peaks. Spread around the top of the mountain they offer picturesque views of little know skirts and edges and a different perspective on Sofia. This is a 360° panoramic trip that will reveal the whole beauty of the mountain surrounding.
Vitosha is one of the symbols of Sofia and the closest site for hiking, alpinism and skiing. Convenient bus lines and rope ways render the mountain easily accessible. Vitosha has the outlines of an enormous dome. The territory of the mountain includes Vitosha nature park that is the oldest nature park in the Balkans. The mountain emerged as a result of volcanic activity and has been subsequently shaped by the slow folding of the granite rock layers and a series of gradual uplifts of the area. Cherni Vrah is the highest point of the mountain at 2290 m and is one of 11 peaks of Vitosha over 2000 m in height that are actually the goal of this trip.
