Rila Monastery Hiking

Rila Monastery and the Suhoto Lake Hike

This is for those who would like a little bit more than just a quick stop for some photos at the monastery. We offer you a hike to the breathtaking Suhoto (The Dry) Lake in the heart of the mountains, just above the Rila Monastery + a visit to the monastery itself.

The tour takes a full day – we take off from a central location in Sofia at 9:00h in the morning and we’re back in Sofia by 19.00

Our day tour includes:

Visit to the Rila Monastery (no rush, you’ll have the time to explore)

A 4-4.5 hour hike through the century-old pine forest above the monastery, to the Dry Lake (not really dry, though)

Certified mountain guide

Prices per group: 300BGN (150EUR) – for up to 4 people
