Bulgaria's mountain regions offer an excellent opportunity for either nature-oriented or activity holidays. Although maybe lacking the height and excitement of Mount Everest, the vastness of the Grand Canyon and the impenetrable unknown of the Amazon jungle, they have their own special charm: tailor-made for today's tourist who looks for that little bit more from a holiday.

The sparkling lakes, awesome caves and spectacular landscapes and the ever-surprising flora and fauna make hiking through these regions an experience of a lifetime, especially when the whole region is so closely linked with the traditions of yesteryear, and be cultures that have survived the test of time.

While the nature lover has more than enough opportunities to explore the region to his heart's content, the more adventurous visitor will be amazed at what Bulgaria's mountains have to offer, and will certainly find that he simply won't have the time to try all that is on offer.

The Rhodopes

The Rhodope mountain range is located in the south-eastern part of the Balkan Peninsula; its highest summit is Mount Perelik (2192 m).

Over 83% of the mountain stands on bulgarian territory and the rest is in Greece. The Rhodopes are among the earliest formed mountain ranges on the Balkans.

The nice climate coupled with other factors is favourable for the development of tourism. The microclimate thus established enables a thick snow cover to be preserved for a long period of time – a veritable paradise for skiers.

During out-of-ski seasons Pamporovo and the surrounding area are ideal for walking and treking and off-road trips, horse riding, nature trips and photographic opportunities and places of interest up in the mountains.
