Walking in the Pirin
Below are descriptions of some of the walks available. All guided walks are optional, with a different route each day led by our experienced English guide. Topographic maps are available for the region for those who would prefer to self-guide.
The Pirin National Park has just over 150 permanent alpine lakes. Lakeland Discovery takes in a selection scattered through an ancient glacial valley, as well as some beautiful waterfalls and meandering streams. With plants and wildlife competing for water during the warm summer months, there is a wealth of alpine vegetation and colourful birds and insects along the route. This walk is a nice introduction to the altitude, with an average height of around 2,300 metres.
The Eyes Of Todorka
A more demanding route, this walk is spread over two glacial valleys. The first section leads to the head of the first valley, before ascending to the ridge below the peak of Todorka. The final uphill section is rewarded with a stunning view of each valley, in front and behind. From here, the descent begins to two of the largest lakes known as "The Eyes Of Todorka". This descent leads through a vast hanging valley, which joins two of arguably the most beautiful valleys in the entire Park.
