This day tour is designed for those who like the taste of outdoor adventure on two wheels. Vitosha Mountain Nature Park offers a variety of trails for every skill level – from nearly flat, wide soft paths in the foothills of the mountain to the twisting trails running down from the highest peaks. Transport, guide, mountain bike, lunch and a good time are all included
This day tour is designed for people who want to explore Vitosha by bike – Sofia’s home mountain. You should already know how to ride as this tour requires good skills and control of the bike to negotiate the twisty trails and sometimes steep sections. However, whether you are beginners, intermediate or advanced cyclists this tour can be adapted to different skill levels. The total riding distance for the day is about 25 kilometers and the choice of trails depends on the capabilities of the group.
Your guide will pick you from the hotel in the morning and will take you to the foothills of Vitosha Mountain where the bikes will get some final adjustments to suit you and after a quick safety word, you will be ready to ride. The first kilometers are mostly uphill as we ascend towards the higher parts of the mountain. Once there, it’s time for a picnic style lunch where you can take time to admire the magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.
Depending on how high you’ve climbed, you will be rewarded with a mixture of trails going down through forests and meadows, testing your abilities and skills to control the bike. After the excitement of the Vitosha downhill ride, it’s time to cool off with a bit of cross country style soft paths that run with a very slight decline for number of kilometers. It will take you gently back to the car and will complete your riding day.
In the late afternoon it’s time to head back to Sofia and your guide will drop you off at your hotel for a well deserved rest.
