What you'll do

I am picking you up from any location in Sofia. We're going together to a hut in Vitosha mountain from where we're going on a very easy, one hour hiking, to a point in the mountain from where you can see the whole city of Sofia. The walk is really easy and there is less than 100 meters denivelation. After that we're coming back to the hut where we'll have time for tea or food (approximately 1 hour) and then I'll drive you back to your location.

Hi, my name is Ivaylo. I am 29 from Sofia and travelling is my passion. I am travelling and hiking the last few years. Being in the mountains or on the road is something typical for me. The last 3 years I organized tens of trips with hundreds of people who joined them.

Where you'll be

The main goal of our trip is Kamen Del peak in Vitosha mountain. It's a spot from where you can observe the capital of Bulgaria - Sofia. There is a one hour walk from the parking in front of Aleko hut. The hike is really easy so basically everyone can do it if the person is in condition to walk for few hours. Then we'll stop in the hut or in the local restaurant.

La randonnée avec Ivo est juste fantastique. Ivo vient vous chercher à votre logement à Sofia et vous conduit en 1 heure à la montagne Vitosha. De là débute une magnifique randonnée aller retour environ 3 heures. La difficulté de la randonnée est assez simple car très peu de dénivelé. La vue que nous avons sur la ville de Sofia une fois arrivés au point de vue est juste splendide. Il n’y a aucun mots et aucune photo capable d'immortaliser le moment. Pour ne rien gâcher Ivo est vraiment super sympathique et vous fais partager sa passion de sa montagne et de sa ville. Je vous recommande très fortement de faire cette excursion. Vous ne le regretterez pas.
