Borovets Resort Guide


Borovets is Bulgaria's premier walking resort. It is the walkers 'promised land' with hotels being the starting point for most popular itineraries and offering miles of marked trails amidst some of Balkan's finest highland scenery. Start by quick gondola-lift ascent to Mousala, Bulgaria's highest mountain, where trail follows the ridge up to the very summit awarding with spectacular, unobscured mountain views at nearly 3,000 meters. Hiking to Chernata Skala, also known as Black Rock, is almost a 'signature route' in Borovets, running through dense pine forest and criss-crossing number of brooks and creeks, before reaching a flat rock with dramatic sheer face under.
