The lakes are absolutely beautiful. There are some tricky spots, especially when the ground is wet, but if you're of relatively good health, 5 hours to tour the place is enough. I enjoyed that it was a go at your own pace event because I am rather slow at hiking and I often feel pressure to move at other people's pace. But this was great because you could decide where you wanted to go and how long to get there as long as you met back at the meeting point at the correct time. If you like nature and hiking, this is a must do.
I really enjoyed the whole trip to 7 Rila Lakes and Rila Montasery. The Lakes are breathtaking and you can just walk on easy routes but also you can climb the highest top and see the amazing view of all 7 lakes. Montasery is also very beautiful but unfortunately we arrived when the museum of montasery was closed (after 4:30 pm). All in all i definitely recommend this activity!
Great way to get to the Rila lakes and monastery without renting a car or trying to figure out public transportation. Totally worth it for the price. The trip was well organised and ran on time. We were provided a map of the hiking trails which was sufficient to navigate with. It's a long day but well worth it - the hike is gorgeous and the monastery is stunning!
It's a well organized trip. There was enough time at the lakes to do the whole round route with some stops along the way to enjoy the views which were wonderful! Driver was excellent, explaining us everything about the trip and was open for any kind of questions and conversation. I definitely recommend it
Beautiful experience, recommended! Attention to clothing, which must be suitable.
