Vitosha Snowshoes Trekking Tour

Vitosha is a mountain in the outskirts of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. It is one of the tourist symbols of Sofia and the nearest site for skiing, trekking, walking or rock climbing. Vitosha has the outlines of an enormous dome. The mountain emerged as a result of volcanic activity and has been subsequently shaped by the slow folding of the granite rock layers and a series of gradual uplifts of the area. The territory of the mountain includes Vitosha nature park including the best known and most frequently visited parts. Vitosha is the oldest nature park on the Balkans since 1934. Cherni Vrah ("Black Peak") is the highest point of the mountain at 2290 m and is one of 10 peaks of Vitosha over 2000 m in height.

Your Day on Vitosha Mountain

Only 30 minutes away from the Sofia city center, Vitosha mountain offers quick and easy access. Your snowshoeing experience will start either from the Golden Bridges area or from Aleko ski center and will possibly take you to the top of the mountain - Cherni Vruh.  A beautiful but not very demanding walk over the plateau will reveal beautiful views of the city above the smog and under sun. The itinerary may vary depending on the group and weather.
