Itinerary

The Rila Monastery is considered as the most important tourist site in Bulgaria and this is already a good reason to visit, no matter of the season and the weather. We would like to offer you a combination of a visit to the UNESCO site with a winter snowshoe walking trip that will show you the beauties of the surrounding area and will add an additional value to the day trip to the Rila Monastery from Sofia.
Transfer to the Rila Monastery – around 2:00 hours. We will first aim the outdoors around the monastery and will leave the visit of the cultural site for later. Another 15 minutes drive will take us to the Kirilova meadow (Kirilova polyana) – a locality at 1500 m of elevation, next to the most alpine peaks in Rila with spectacular views towards the main ridge of the mountain with all its granite vertical walls and needles.
We put the snowshoes and get instructions on how to use them. Walk along Rilska River enjoying the forests and the winter landscapes of the area.
Visit to the monastery – 1h.
Transfer back to Sofia 2:30 hours.
The total walking time is 2 – 2:30 hours; +150/-150 m.
An additional option to combine the tour with visit of a local winery and wine tasting tour.
