Seven Rila Lakes and Rila Monastery combined tour

Your Day Around The Lakes and the Rila Monastery

The Seven Rila lakes area is the most popular and easy-access option for the ultimate scenic hike. It is located in Rila Mountain, about 90 kms south of the capital Sofia and after 2 hour drive an open chair lift takes you up directly for about 30 min from the parking lot to the hike starting point - Seven Rila lakes hut. The loop hike from there takes about 5 hours and it is not very difficult, except for some uphill parts

After the Seven lakes walk you take the chair lift back to Panichiste and the parking lot from where you go again by car to the Monastery of Rila (1h 30min drive)If you get on time, you will have some 45 min to explore the Monastery complex using our professional audio guides in English, Spanish, Russian, Italian or Spanish and also hear the evening mess at 17:00h and then go back to Sofia for another 2 hours. We recommend this combined option tour only to people that are experienced mountain walkers.
