Going on the top of Pirin offers unique views of the mountain and the valley. The path there is good, however, requires some good condition.

The opportunity to climb Vihren came as a surprise during a visit to Plovdiv. We ascended a 14 km road from Blasko to the trailhead, where a classic lodge was located. The [red] trail from the parking area was relatively easy to follow, at the...More

Vihren looks like a bright, majestic pyramid and because of its shape is a bit similar to K2 or Matterhorn. The Lord of the Pirin. I got to the top of Vihren during a hiking tour to the mountains of Bulgaria. We started and finished...More

Very nice hike with beautiful scenery. If going by car you should get there before 9:00 to park near otherwise you'll be forced to park outside the national Park and find your way inside somehow.

Medium difficulty. Very nice views from the top of the peak. It takes around 3h to reach it. Totally worth it.

This is a great hike and not all that difficult at 2914M. The views are great and as for the flowers (end of june) were amazing.

It is really difficult as a Brit to find out how to safely climb the mountain, the 2nd highest peak in Bulgaria, but where there's a will, you must find a way! You can drive up Pirin Rd out of Bansko, past the National Park...More

We went skiing, staying in Bansko below, in the Pirin Mountains for the February holidays. We were mixed abilities. The pistes are beautiful and all open apart from one on the opposite hill which hasn't been open since around 2009 due to risk of avalanche....More

One of the places in Bulgaria, where you will be away from Bulgarian foolishness. The second highest peak in Bulgaria is maybe the most beautiful one. A day hike to the peak from Vihren hut is an adventure to enjoy. The total displacement is 1000m...More

Another thought, the 'waterfall walk' follows the river uphill from Bansko. We walked a couple of sections over a couple of days. The well walked path is mostly through woodland, veering back and forth between the river and... More

Yes in one way as there seemed to be a few others on the mountain. However, it really depends on your walking experience and personal skills and confidence. If you would be happy to climb given changeable weather then give... More

Hi Saul, We visited Bansko in last July and had a great time. We rent a car, so we could reach even further places. I can recommend these attractions: 1. Spend 1-2 hours in Dancing Bears Park. 2. 1 day trek climbing to... More
