An exciting and challenging goal in winter time. The adventure is suitable for people in very good physical condition who have previous hiking experience.
~ Day 1 ~
We start from Borovets ski resort (1350 m, 1.15 hours drive from Sofia). After a trip with the gondola lift up to about 2400 m, we trek for a couple of hours and reach Ledenoto Ezero (The Icy Lake) Chalet at 2700 m. This is where we stay for the night. If the chalet is closed, as it happens occasionally in winter, we’ll stay in Musala Hut.
~ Day 2 ~
Early morning ascent to Musala (2925 m.) and descend to Borovets (possible to use the gondola or return by foot). Drive back to Sofia.
How do we source our prices:
Please note negotiating prices is not always possible.
Essentially we are a price, availability and itinerary comparison site that helps people meet their adventure needs and save time along with providing extra customer service and consultation on top of the services you receive. All of this is free of charge as commission is taken from the suppliers.
Although Musala is accessible without any special equipment (crampons and ice axe) in certain winter conditions we may need them for the last part of the ascent (there is a fixed railing there, but in rare occasions, it’s covered by snow).
