Bulgaria is a country of wonders! It has collected a wealth of extremely beautiful natural landmarks and cultural monuments of world significance on its small territory and it is the second most biologically diverse country in Europe with more than 12,360 plant species.

Highlights of our walking holidays in Bulgaria include the Rila Monastery, the most important spiritual and cultural centre of Bulgaria, and Mount Vihren, the second highest peak in Bulgaria and the third highest peak on the Balkan Peninsula and home to everything a walker could desire; accessible peaks, good paths, great views, open ridges and lots of interest on lower slopes.

Ramblers Worldwide Holidays’ friendly, informal groups welcome you to walk in Bulgaria with them. Our experienced guides will share their trustworthy knowledge of the local area to show you the best and most unique aspects of this under-explored but accessible country.
