Rila, Pirin and Olympus Mountains

We offer a 9-day trekking adventure to the highest mountains in Bulgaria and Greece – Rila, Pirin and Olympus mountains. We’ll climb the challenging peaks of Vihren (2914 m, Pirin Mountains) and Mytikas (2917 m, Olympus Mountains), enjoy the area of Belmeken Dam in Rila and see some of the cultural sights of both countries like Dion Archeological Park in Greece and Rila Monastery in Bulgaria.


We follow only tourist trails with some scrambling sections at Olympus Mountains. We’ll do up 7-8 hours walks with up to 1000-1100 meters ascent in some days. No technical difficulty and no special equipment is needed. Minimum previous hiking experience is required, but a very good physical condition and lack of aerophobia is a must to enjoy the walks.



  • The second and third highest peaks on the Balkans
  • Rila National Park, Pirin National Park and Olympus National Park
  • The unique culture, nature and everyday life of two countries – Bulgaria and Greece

Itinerary: Rila, Pirin and Olympus Trekking Program


Possible extensions:

  • The highest peak on the Balkans – Mount Musala in Rila Mountains
  • Tymfi Mountains in Northern Pindus, Meteora Monastery Complex, Greece

Required equipment: hiking boots, rucksack (35-45 l), trekking poles, water and windproof jacket, rain cover, sun hat, sun lotion, sunglasses, water bottle (1 liter), torch, personal first aid kit.
