Free Hiking Tour Sveti Vlas has finished it's tours for summer 2017. Private tours available on request! FHT Sveti Vlas is an independent not-for profit tour. It's ultimate goal is to inspire people to love and protect nature as well as to promote Bulgaria’s wilderness and ecotourism. It was established in June, 2014 by Madlena Kuleva, a passionate nature lover and stress relief trainer. The hiking tour is based on the concept pay-what-you-want. Tourists show their appreciation by leaving a tip. The difficulty of the terrain is moderate. It would take approximately 4 hours to cover the 8 km long trek. Sport shoes, a sandwich and a big smile. :) That's what you need!

Fantastic opportunity to hike in the Balkan mountains and to experience wonderful panoramic views of the area with a superb guide who encourages you to get involved in learning about the local wildlife and plant life.
