Bulgaria travel is the perfect, short haul destination for snowy, winter fun holidays – whatever type of activity you are looking for. For those who enjoy walking holidays in the great outdoors during the summer, why not try the winter alternative and go snowshoeing? The beautiful wilderness of the Seven Lakes area of the Rila Mountains, sitting in the shadow of Mt. Maliovitza is a great place to ‘cut your teeth’ with this age old winter activity, t’s easy too – if you can walk, you can snowshoe! The snowy vistas are particularly spectacular and snowshoeing gives the perfect opportunity to enjoy the surroundings as you pass through powder covered forests at a pace that suits you. A visit to the local thermal pools is a must as it taking a walk to the Skakavitza waterfall – often frozen solid in mid-winter. Take some time also to explore the region’s most famous landmark, the Rila Monastery, and relax by night in comfortable local hotels and pensions.
