What you'll do

The ancient Bulgarian town of Bansko lies at the foot of the Pirin Mountains, a stunning and striking mountain range in the southwest of the country. Gifted with thick blankets of pristine snowfall, it offers the perfect conditions for snow-fuelled adventures. Even better, because word of Bansko hasn’t trickled down to the average ski-goer, much of this frosty wonderland is left untouched. This snowshoe trip is geared towards those with little or no experience on the slopes while having a decent level of fitness. That terrain that we'll cover is technically easy. We will head to Delchev hut, which rests at 1,485 meters and take the chair lift to Bezbog hut at 2,240 meters. Ascending the slopes blanketed with deep fresh powder, we’ll reach Bezbog peak at 2,645 meters in around 2 hours. From the top the views are spectacular, which are dominated by the Rila, Pirin and Rodopi Mountains. We will take a break here in a perfect spot for a scenic group picnic. See the white mountains flow from your front row seat to nature’s rugged beauty. Then we will trace our steps back down to the hut and take the lift, before heading back to Bansko. If you are a group of 3 or more then contact me to hear about an interesting discount.
