Full description

This hiking day tour from Sofia is designed for those who would like to escape from the busy city and enjoy the great outdoors. This adventure will give you the ultimate satisfaction and a bit of challenge. The day starts with your guide picking you up from your hotel. You will leave Sofia and its valley behind and enter the Balkan Mountains along the river Iskar. After a short drive we will reach the first stop of the day – the “Vazova” Eco trail where the hiking starts. Named after one of the most prominent figures of the Bulgarian literature, the trail takes you up the mountain near the rushing waters of Skaklya waterfall. The vertical cliffs allow the water to fall freely from 85m (279 ft.) and cascade further down into the valley below. After passing right under the waterfall giving stunning views and photo opportunities, the trail climbs further up and allows you to see the waterfall from above. A local village is situated on top of the cliffs which makes a perfect stop for a tasty lunch. A picnic style lunch with sandwiches, fruit, juice and snacks will be provided to you combined with a spot with a magnificent view. After lunch another trail gently descends back to the bottom of the Iskar gorge, revealing stunning panoramas towards the cliff face and the waterfall. After coming back down to the level of the river it is time to head back to Sofia where the hike ends. Your guide will then take you back to your hotel in the late afternoon where the tour ends
