Holiday Highlights

- Stunning winter landscapes with deep gorges, spectacular caves and expansive open meadows.

- Outstanding bird life, including elusive species such as wallcreeper and hazel grouse.

- Fascinating network of animal tracks crisscrossing the snow, with possible glimpses of secretive wildlife such as wolves, wild boar and roe deer.

- Unique opportunities to experience Bulgarian culture and way of life.

- Delicious Bulgarian  cuisine and outstanding regional wines.

- An experienced, fully qualified, knowledgeable and highly enthusiastic guide.

NB: Unlike many other wildlife holiday companies in Bulgaria who attempt to cut costs by making their guides have to double up as drivers, we employ separate professional drivers with licensed vehicles for all our walking holidays in Bulgaria as we believe it is not only safer to have a driver fully focused on the road, but also allows our guides to concentrate fully on looking after you!

Further Information

During the winter the Bulgarian Mountains often experience heavy falls of snow, which blanket the mountains in deep drifts making ideal conditions for snowshoeing. Our unique snowshoeing holidays explore remote and unspoiled parts of Bulgaria's mountains far from the crowded pistes of the major winter resorts, offering exciting winter walking, along with a blend of natural history and cultural interest.

Our snowshoeing holidays in Bulgaria also provide an opportunity to discover the rich history, culture and wildlife of the region. A highly varied selection of carefully designed snowshoeing treks and winter walks will lead you through ancient forests, across panoramic open meadows, into mysterious caves, and past snow-bound villages which lie seemingly cut off from the outside world. 

Snowshoeing amidst some of the remotest and wildest parts of Bulgaria's mountains, also allows you to track and observe secretive wildlife such as Wolf (Canis lupus), Balkan Chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra balcanica), Mouflon (Ovis orientalis), Wild Boar (Sus scrofa) and Roe Deer (Capreolus capreolus).

For families with children, we are able to offer safe, fun and exciting bespoke family winter adventures and multi-activity holidays that allow children of all ages the chance to try out a variety of different outdoor winter activities such as snowshoeing and tobogganing amidst stunning mountain landscapes, skiing and snowboarding at one of Bulgaria's premiere ski resorts, caving in two of Bulgaria's most spectacular caves, as well as tracking and observing a variety of secretive wildlife such as chamois, deer, wild boar and wolves.

Our family winter multi-activity holidays are also educational, providing a first-hand opportunity to learn more about Bulgaria's rich history and culture with a pilgrimage to one of the largest and most atmospheric monasteries in Bulgaria, and by trying your hands at local crafts, folk dancing and cookery. During your family winter multi-activity holiday in Bulgaria, you will experience the warmth of traditional local hospitality by staying in cozy family run hotels, where you will also be well fed on delicious child-friendly cuisine.
