Hut to Hut Trekking in Pirin Mountain

28 august – 3 september 2021

Enjoy the magical Pirin Montain. A six-day tour that will take you to the most beautiful and remote corners of the range.

HHut to hut walking was very popular in the past. And there is a good
reason for that – open mountain space, fresh air, and real human relations, far from the hectic everyday life. We do not suffer for those times but we do like such experiences. Our mountains offer great opportunities for multiple trekking days due to the presence of many huts which is a great advantage. Also, staying in the mountains for a few days is the safest anti-stress medicine.
We invite you to an unforgettable six-day tour in Pirin – the most alpine mountain in our country which captivates the eyes of mountaineers. We will enjoy the mountain passing through some of its most emblematic places – Vihren, Koncheto, Tevno Lake, Papazgyol … Along with that, true to ourselves, we have prepared some uncommon walks for you. We will cross the mountain at the end of summer when the colors become more saturated, the air is crystal clear, the lakes emerald blue, and the mountain itself somehow calms down and gives us its most tender embrace. Along with all this, we are sure that you will meet new common souls with whom to share these moments. If all this sounds exciting to you, then it is just for you. So, grab the backpack.
We will spend the nights in mountain huts and accommodation will be in double / triple rooms or dorms. All chalets offer cooked food, which you can order on site. In some of them you will be able to refresh yourself with a hot shower as well. All this makes them wonderful places where you can relax and enjoy the tranquility of the mountain.
This program is suitable for people with good physical training and previous mountain experience. If you are not sure whether this is suitable for you, we advise you to contact us in advance in order to help you making a decision. We know that the pleasant mountain experience starts with the proper route choice.

The program will take place with minimum of 5 participants.

Day 1: Sofia – Gotse Delchev hut – Tevno lake shelter
A morning transfer from Sofia to Gotse Delchev hut (around 2.30 h). Taking a chair lift we are reaching Bezbog hut, where out trekking to Tevno lake shelter starts from. The trail takes us to the largest lake in Pirin – Popovoto and continue further our ascent through the sheltered Samodivski (Kraledvorski) lakes to reach the Left Kraledvorska gate. This is the highest point of the day from where we descend to the shelter. The cozy building is located on the shores of the quiet Lake Tevno – the largest in the circus Belemeto and one of the most fabulous places in the mountain. The sunsets to Kamenitza peak are incredible. Accommodation in dorm. Duration: 5 hours. Highest point along the route: 2610 m asl.

Day 2: Tevno Lake shelter – Pirin hut
We have prepared an extremely picturesque and attractive day for you. We say goodbye to this heavenly place and head to Pirin hut. But in order to make it more interesting we will not follow the classic route. We will pass under the sharp ridge Demirkapiiski chuki to climb Mount Dzhano. It reveals a view towards one of the most beautiful Pirin lakes – Kremenski. From the top we continue in south direction along the entire Debeli rid passing through the summits Chengelchal, Demirchal and Hleven. From the ridge you will be able to enjoy several hidden lake circuses which rarely come into the sight of tourists. The descent to the hut will make through the mystical Puknatoto (Cracked) Lake. Overnight in dormitories. Duration: 7-8 hours. Highest point on the route: 2709 m asl.

Day 3: Pirin hut – Begovitsa hut
Today is a day for recovery. Our traverse will not be very long but picturesque enough. If the group wishes, we can climb Zaba (the Tooth) or Kuklite (the Dolls) summit. Our descent to the hut passes through the valley of Begovitsa river. Time to rest. The night is in double / triple rooms with bathroom and WC. Duration: 5 hours. Highest point on the route: 2570 m asl.

Day 4: Begovitsa hut – Vihren hut
We have a diverse day ahead of us. In the morning we head to the shelter Spano Pole, passing through picturesque coniferous forests and crosses many mountain streams. We will cross Spanopolski Circus to reach the Banderishka Gate, from where we descend through the same named circus to our final destination for the day – Vihren mountain hut, located just below the highest summit in Pirin, having the same name – Vihren. Overnight in dormitories. Duration: 7-8 hours
Highest point on the route: 2500 m asl.

Day 5: Vihren hut – Yavorov hut
The real Pirin classic – a route full of many emotions, adrenaline and breathtaking views. We start by climbing Vihren peak, from where we continue to Koncheto saddle and the whole marble ridge of the mountain. We reach the Suhodol pass, from where we descend to Yavorov chalet for overnight stay. Accommodation in double/ triple rooms with bathroom and toilet. Duration: 8-9 hours. Highest point on the route: 2914 m asl.

Day 6: Yavorov hut – Pirin peak – Predel – Sofia
Another unpopular and magic route as a finale of our adventure. A challenging day where every step deserves the effort. We will take you to the northernmost and rarely visited peak – named Pirin. We will reach it passing through Dautovo Lake, from where we step up on the main ridge. The descent to Predela passes through a reserve known by its majestic pine forests. Return to Sofia late in the evening. Duration: 8-9 hours. Highest point on the route: 2593 m asl.
