  1. Hi,

    Which of the reserves in the Central Balkan Mountains is furthest east? At the moment I am in Varna and I would like to travel to the nearest one.

    Any trails or hikes that you could recommend would be greatly appreciated!

    We are travelling to Bulgaria at the beginning of June.
    We would like to do a 3-4 day trekking in the central Balkan mountain, slleping in huts or villages.
    We are considering the following options:
    – from Troyan to Gabrovo
    – from Troyan to Karlovo (or viceversa)
    – from Ribaritsa to Karlovo (or viceversa)

    What would you recommend? Can you confirm we can find easily hits or villages to find accommodation? And how can we get the information on the map, routes and accommodation?

    Thanks a lot in advance,

  3. Hello. How long time it takes to hike from Karlovo to Botev and back? Is it possible to do it in one sunrise till sunset hiking day in july?

  4. Hello and thanks for the information. Can you tell med where you find the different huts and walking routes?

    • Hi, Unfortunately we didn`t upload info on the huts yet. Regarding the routes you may check the Central Balkan map and the Kom-Emine guide book, offered in the Maps&Guidebooks section.

  5. Hello,
    Thanks a lot for all the informations.
    This summer I’ll go to Chiflik (4 days). Please, could you tell me some routes for trekking from there?. I like a lot to watch animals , but I imagine that summer it is not a good time to see them.
    Goodbye and thanks

    • Hi Luis,

      From Chiflik you can drive further to Haydushka Pesen Hut and trek up to Kozya Stena and Eho huts on the main ridge, also to Vasilyov Hut. The best is to get a map and study the routes in advance, than choose the ones that will suit your level. Enjoy!

  6. Hello, first of all thanks for all the informations that you give here. I wanted to ask you if you could tell me where these trails start from. Generally do you think Karlovo is a good place to start from? Goodbye, thanks again

    • Hi Gabrielle, yes, Karlovo is a good start point for hiking in the Central Balkan. Best is to get a map of the area, all the trail heads are shown there – there is a trail starting from nearly every village.
