What you'll do
After meeting you at the city center I will drive you with my personal car to the Vitosha mountain, where our hike experience will start. I will guide you to some of the most interesting places around, including gorgeous 'stone rivers" natural sites, cozy mountain huts, connected with lovely forest trails with plenty opportunities to take beautiful pictures. We'll walk through the beautiful beech and pine forests of Vitosha Nature park, the oldest nature park on the Balkans. After that we will hike to the peak with the most spectacular view over the entire city and enjoy the breathtaking sunset panorama on a cup of homemade tea. On many places of our route you will be able to take beautiful pictures and I will share some photography tips and tricks with you. I will show you how to shoot panoramic photos and will bring sturdy tripod for your convenience. On the top we can make and nice night photos of the city. After that we will go back through the mystic night forest path using headlights. I will drive you back to the Sofia city center or where you are staying.
I’m traveler, mountaineer and adventures addicted guy, eager to share knowledge, favorite places and my passion to hike in the mountains. I'm also nature and landscape photographer keen on chasing the perfect light on the perfect location. I have experience in mountain guiding and I'm trained for rendering first aid. I live in Sofia for more than 15 years and have great experience and knowledge for the city history, architecture and hidden gems. Almost every week I'm with my family in the surrounding mountains and will show you my personal favorites.

Things to keep in mind
For a full refund, cancel at least 7 days before the experience is scheduled to start or within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 4 guests ages 18 and up can attend. This experience is with easy to moderate difficulty, but you have to be comfortable to make 4-5 hours of walking on mountain trails with 600m positive / negative elevation gain.
Wear comfortable clothing and trail shoes/runners or hiking boots, appropriate for the season! Don't forget to bring rain jacket/coat, sun protection, some light hat, gloves and your camera! Your safety is my top priority, so in case of bad weather conditions experience can be cancelled.
