Hiking in Bulgaria

Who we are

Любен ГрънчаровHiking Guide Bulgaria is a brand name of Skiato LTD, Bulgarian company run by a local mountain guide – Lyuben Grancharov. The website bulguides.com was initially created as a blog by Lyuben.

As you can see from the mish mash of names and brands, we love the variety of activities as well as the variety of mountain and nature sights we have in our region. We cannot say we have a favorite mountain or a peak. We like to see the different parts of the country during the seasons and moving in a different way – bike riding, walking, snowshoeing or skiing.

What we offer

Bulguides.com contains a lot of up to date information about the mountains and hiking in Bulgaria. Little by little the platform developed separate sections about mountain biking, ski touring, snowshoeing and other tours, offered by us. Skiato.eu is our website devoted to the snow activities – ski touring and freeriding with locals from Bulgaria.

Hiking in Bulgaria and the neighboring countries

Walking and trekking in the mountains of Bulgaria and the neighboring mountain ranges of Greece, Northern Macedonia, Kosovo and so on, is our favorite way to explore the Balkans and we are happy to share this knowledge with our guests from around the world.

Nowadays, together with a bunch of professional guides we offer guided hiking, walking and trekking, mountain biking, ski touring, snowshoeing, trail running and climbing adventures around the mountains of Bulgaria.

How do we operate

We mainly work with individuals and small groups. Our aim is to provide best service on custom and private tours. Most often we would offer you a tailor made itinerary, according to the season, the conditions up the mountains, your aims, interests, preferences and fitness level. We are trying to be away from the most crowded routes and to see the most interesting sights up the mountains following attractive, but less popular walking trails and routes.

Self-guided tours

Our other specialty are the self guided tours – we fully understand the passion to explore by yourself, finding your way through the mountains. This is why we offer walking tours and mountain biking tours without a guide. The tours benefit from our full background support – providing routes descriptions and tracks, mountain maps, and taking care on all the organizational hassle and possible issues.

What else

Along with that, on bulguides.com you’ll find a lot of useful info: general information on the different mountain ranges, the main hiking routes, the huts, best time to visit, information on the markings, safety issues and more.
