This was a wonderful break from being in the city centre, we were able to experience a hike up Vitosha mountain to Boyana lake and waterfall. The lake was less impressive than expected, however it was discoloured due to recent rain. What made this hike...More

It is a really great (free) hike tour to enjoy the Vitasha mountain next to Sofia to have a relaxing break from the city and enjoy the nature, sit next to a small waterfall and have a beautiful view of Sofia. Absolutely recommended.

The best way to cool down on the winding Sofia streets, forests and parks and still enjoy finding out the interesting history from Romans to Communists. Meet with Dutch, Germans, Italians, Americans or anyone and follow the local volunteers, such as Petur Krustev, off the...More

We did the free bike tour and really enjoyed it. We weren't sure what to expect but you go off the beaten track to discover a different side to the city. Guides were great and take you to the bike rental place. Definitely recommend

We took the Green Tour Mountain guide. Would recommend and would definately go again if I had the opportunity. Note though - it is a harder walk than is maybe advertised, and make sure you take plenty of water.
