Full description
Your guide will pick you up in the morning from your hotel or address in Sofia for a wonderful journey to Aleko Mountain Resort, situated within an hour drive from the city center at 1,840 meters a.s.l. The guide will help you with snowshoe binding adjustments and give you a short briefing regarding the simple techniques of walking with them before heading towards the highest peak of Vitosha Mountain (Cherni Vruh, 2290 m a.s.l.). The walk in the winter wonderland begins with a gentle ascent, and soon you will get above the tree line admiring great panoramic views. You will reach the top of the mountain in about 2-hours, where you will have a break for a warm herbal tea provided by the guide, before heading back towards Aleko Resort, enjoying the wonderful views of the Bulgarian capital.
