    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Starting from Aleksander Nevski we are going to explore the Vitosha mountain with an easy walk in fairy and lovely forest. The wild and winding trail will lead us to the awesome view of Sofia. One of our stops is at the natural wonder "Wonder bridges" where every year one of the weirdest Red Bull competition takes place. Why is weird you will see by yourself. Visiting typical mountain hut will leave an unforgettable memory for your time spent with us in this amazing mountain!

We took this tour on a Saturday, during our stay in Sofia.
The 2 of us were the only participants this day and we were promptly picked up from a location close to our hotel.
The tour is exactly as described in the guide, but it does not convey the passion and knowledge Eduard has for Vitosha, he has discovered a beautiful, peaceful route through the forest following Roman roads (which can be a little stony in places), he adjusted the pace according to our fitness levels. The viewpoint is spectacular and very quiet, providing an amazing view of Sofia. We stopped at 2 mountain huts on the way where we were made most welcome. Good trainers are a must. The mountain roads were chockablock on the way down which made us appreciate the quietness of Eduard’s secret route!

Thank you very much for these sweet and kind words! For me was a pleasure to spend time together in Vitosha mountain. I've learnt from you that if something is not planned it could be more good than expected! Take care and keep unplanning :)

The trip was truly unforgettable! Even though we are locals, taking this half day trip up the mountain and into the forest, together with the kids, left us wanting more and appreciating better our own country’s natural wonders! I highly recommend it both to families and to those of any age.
The guide was very knowledgeable and totally committed and I believe that he showed us the best of what Vitosha mountain had to offer us. We particularly loved the serene and beautiful forest walk, the splendid view from up the peak, the authentic and delicious food offered by the kind people hosting us in the hut, and the overall great feeling of a day well spent that we were left with. Not to mention the myriad of little secrets that made the walk even more magical, including the magic wish - granting tree and the balls of Zeus.
Once again, if you happen to land in Sofia and are looking for an adventure worthy of your time, don’t hesitate, hop on the awesome red van and climb up to explore nature’s beauty at its best!

The tour description was very informative and it matched with the actual tour so it was very easy for us to decide whether we should buy this tour since we are a beginner hiker. Our friendly mountain guide,Eduard came with colourful vehicle and brought us up to the mountain and showed us photo stop points before we began the hiking. We were super lucky that there were only 2 of us on the tour that day. It is an exclusive experience.
We are very satisfied with the tour and our guide. Totally recommended :)

Interesting tour to the Vitosha Mountain outside Sofia. Here you can visit the river of stones and do a nice hiking tour and see a spectacular view over the city of Sofia. If you want inspiration and select more beautiful trails this tour is a great introduction to further visits in Vitosha!

Theodora was a wonderful guide! She's very knowledgable about Vistosha mountain and shared a wealth of interesting information alongside personal anecdotes. She also answered my many questions about Sofia and Bulgaria more broadly -- a very helpful experience for me in my first days in the city. I felt very safe in her company (she even brought an extra coat in case I was cold on a cooler-than-expected day). The hiking experience and conversation was one I won't soon forget. Thanks, Theodora!

If you travel to Sofia, you must visit the Vitosha mountain.
Absolutely beautiful place. The forest looks like it been taken from the Bambi moovie. The cleanest air you will breathe for a long time.
A clear look on the city from above and an excellent pork chops in the way back. A good word for my tour guide Teodora too for she has been excellent in any way.
In summary I enjoyed it very much.

We hiked with Eduard in the Vitosha mountain. It was a great experience. Eduard was super pleasant, helpful and very likable. We had fun walking and talking, stopping at a hut to have tea. The whole experience was lovely and we highly recommend it. We are thrilled at the possibility of having a custom made tour to other places as well. Can't wait to get back to beautiful Bulgaria! Thanks, Eduard.
